How to Leverage New Fintech to Your Benefit

We’re only two weeks away from the opening of the inaugural Automotive Intelligence Summit, and we’re so excited for you to soak up all the content we’ve assembled for you. Here’s a little taste of two fintech sessions we think you’ll really enjoy.

Jim Landy, the CEO of SpringboardAuto, recognizes that consumers want a better buying experience, have more choices and to complete more of the process online. However, providing the user experience your customers are looking for is not just about technology. The modern consumer experience values real-time responses, full transparency and the ability to self-direct throughout the process. The best digital technology’s success depends on the speed of change inside the organization being faster than the pace of change outside the organization.
Landy’s closing keynote, “Bridging the Technology Gap & Predicting the Pace of Change,” will consider how to make the unstoppable and constant innovations in tech work for you and your customers. Thankfully, better strategies don’t just start with esoteric programs and apps; they begin with behavioral change and having the right people. Landy will also contend that the desired user experience will eventually prevail and opportunity is ripe with a notoriously less-than-satisfying buying experience in a very large market. Demographic change, new ownership models and completing the digital experience will create significant opportunity for start-ups unless incumbents move faster and pragmatically remove entrenched interests that shy away from risk.

Start off the third and final day of the Automotive Intelligence Summit the right way with this panel of master financial minds. Ed Falco, senior director of the Auriemma Consulting Group, leads a discussion with Rod Arends, vice president of service center operations for Southeast Toyota Finance, and Mark Tuggle, head of auto-lending default management and center of operations for BBVA Compass, entitled “Leveraging New Technology and Analytics to Improve Collection Results.” Through their rousing discussion, you’ll learn how companies have managed to improve efficiency and prevent loss using technology available today, saving upwards of billions of dollars in collections. You’ll discover plenty of strategies for how the largest financial institutions in the world leverage technology and analytics to solve real-world collections problems.
