The auto industry is one of the fastest-growing industry segments, with 60 million projected sales for passenger cars in 2020. Coincidentally, it is also one of the largest economic sectors by Revenue worldwide and is one of the least affected industry segments due to COVID-19. With the demand for passenger cars and commercial vehicles going up, automotive dealers are competing to meet customer demands and assuring them a top-notch experience. For several years, they have been using various software solutions and manual documents to serve customers. However, these solutions are not sufficient to cope with ever-increasing customer expectations and meet the challenges of changing the automotive landscape. The shift in automotive customer buying habits and expectations has unearthed some critical challenges for traditionally run dealerships – including a threat to their existence. The ever-expanding digital market has allowed customers to compare models at their leisure. With innovation in the automotive industry, customer expectations and mindset has changed over the years. Connected vehicles, Car-pooling, Autonomous cars, Electric cars are changing the automotive landscape. Service Organizations such as Uber, Ekar & Udrive provide flexibility and convenience to end customers without owning a vehicle.

Therefore, the need for new technologies and functionalities has emerged to cope with a vast customer base’s desire. Traditional applications use RDBMS and transactional approach, limiting the organizational capability to meet current customer expectations.
