Is Digitalization Beneficial for Your Automotive Business

Auto Tech Outlook | Wednesday, June 29, 2022

Leveraging digitalization has a wide range of advantages. Repair and maintenance, for instance, can improve estimating accuracy, while vehicle manufacturers can benefit from increased efficiency.

Fremont, CA: Over the past 20 years, the automobile industry has seen significant change. Manufacturing, efficiency, and design have all experienced gradual gains in the sector, but digitalization is a considerable shift. Recent developments have spawned quick and disruptive technologies that have increased efficiency and enhanced the user experience—key components of raising ROI.

Leveraging digitalization has a wide range of advantages. Repair and maintenance, for instance, can improve estimating accuracy, while vehicle manufacturers can benefit from increased efficiency. Due partly to Brexit and the ensuing scarcity of HGV drivers, the UK is now suffering a gasoline crisis. Because of the labor scarcity, executives in the automobile industry should seriously consider switching to digital to prevent such problems in the future. Even though a big workforce may still be necessary, digitization may be able to lessen the need for workers.

Artificial intelligence in automotive repair & maintenance

Artificial intelligence (AI) has wider potential use in the automobile sector than only self-driving and monitoring; examples include car repair and maintenance.

In the past, individuals only depended on manual guides, including universally applicable recommendations and instructions. To claim that all vehicle manuals apply to all cars, however, would be ludicrous. This is because how a vehicle gets driven may affect its condition. Moreover, with the aid of AI, the widespread use of sensors in automobiles is growing as sensors direct owners' attention to system components that require maintenance.

Digitalization in manufacturing

By fostering more communication, digital factories improve connection. As a result, producers can constantly enhance total productivity. The digitalization of industrial facilities may save downtime for machines by 20 to 35 percent and maintenance expenses by 15 to 25 percent. Automotive manufacturers may get several advantages by installing sensors in their manufacturing facilities. The capacity to forecast future consumption and identify flaws is one such example. This makes it possible to maintain production facilities efficiently, which reduces unexpected downtime.

Digital platforms: a link to increased sales

The COVID-19 pandemic's growth disadvantaged buyers because traditional automobile sales required them to visit the dealer to haggle and do test drives physically. However, the outbreak left little choice but to go toward digital solutions since the automobile sector was already hesitant to implement digital best practices. As a result, customer journeys significantly changed during this period and shifted significantly toward digital.
