Here we look at some of the best automotive training companies and elearning providers, as well as the unique learning & development challenges for car / vehicle manufacturers and dealers.
Competitive, but growing sector
The automotive industry is one of the most competitive, with considerable budgets going into Sales & Marketing, Manufacturing and Logistics. The global automotive manufacturing market was estimated to be worth $2.7 Trillion in 2021 and expected to rise to $2.8 Trillion in 2022 despite fears of recession around the world in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ensuring the highest standards of training is important for maximising value in all those areas, while customer loyalty and the potential for repeat business means that there is great incentive to deliver great customer service. Automotive elearning has started to play an increasingly important part of the training in recent years, allowing for employee training when face to face, classroom environments are difficult or impossible.
It also enables Customer Education both pre-sale in choosing the perfect vehicle, but as part of after-sales care to help improve customer satisfaction and reduce the burden and costs related to service teams.
