How We Enabled an Automotive Sales Business to Scale it’s Processes for a 570% ROI


Not all automation solutions are created the same. Sometimes, automation packages are not suited for your business or existing processes and can result in further inefficiencies and increased costs.

This is where we come in.

Thrive Automation worked with a company in the automotive sales industry that had already implemented a different Robotic Process Automation (RPA) solution, but wasn’t satisfied with the results and continued to face numerous challenges.

We stepped in and helped transition the company to a new automation approach and developed a unique RPA solution to help them cost-effectively scale while resolving numerous challenges.

Challenges We Helped Resolve

Before working with Thrive Automation, our client was using a costly platform from a different RPA provider to scrape data from different web sources. Once the scraping had begun, staff still had to apply business logic to the data set and store it.

When the business wanted to start scaling this automation process, they ran into issues. Because their RPA package required them to pay per bot, this made it impossible to scale from a financial standpoint.

The Next Steps

After leaving their previous automation provider, the automotive sales business worked with Thrive to develop a new cost-effective solution.

Thrive Automation replaced their inefficient RPA setup with powerful bots capable of significantly improving their old processes while gaining a high return on investment. After some testing and fine-tuning, the bots enabled the client to scale their processes and see a return on investment of 570%.

How RPA Can Help Other Automotive Businesses

Wondering how RPA can help your automotive sales business? There are numerous processes that can be automated and scaled using RPA. This includes:

  • The application process for financing
  • Managing payments
  • Booking appointments
  • Managing inventory
  • Logging vehicle service reports
  • Managing accounting
  • Data entry and management

Below, we will go a bit more in-depth into the different processes involved with automotive sales that can be automated using RPA.

Inventory Management

It goes without saying that a significant component of automotive sales is efficiently managing a large inventory of vehicles.

The inventory levels must regularly be monitored to confirm what is selling and what isn’t, and keep track of new arrivals. When sales staff are tasked with this, it often leads to inaccuracies and wasted time.

RPA bots, however, can be deployed to track inventory with more accuracy and in a shorter period of time, while providing real-time inventory reports. This enables your sales staff to focus on what they do best – sales.

Managing Customer Data

When customer data is updated, RPA bots can automatically update the information within every additional system to ensure there are no discrepancies.

Invoicing

RPA bots are capable of performing data entry and can automatically invoice customers, relieving the pressure from sales agents who would otherwise need to do it manually.
