  • AutoAlert is pleased to announce that its new COO is long-time Ford Motor Co. executive Jim Benintende.

    A Ford employee who started on the assembly line, he eventually became the first President of its Middle East and Africa (MEA) business unit. Benintende led that venture from its 2013 inception until August 2016. During that time, he oversaw a business unit made up of 67 countries and 3,800 employees. Over that period Ford’s Ranger truck production spiked by 46% and exports of the vehicle expanded to 150 countries.

    After leading the MEA Business Unit development, Benintende returned to the United States as Ford’s Director of Sales Support to work on and facilitate the restructuring of the company’s U.S. sales and service field force, improve its digital presence, and develop a “go to market” strategy for 2017. He retired from Ford in December 2016.

    “AutoAlert is fortunate that Jim has joined the team,” says AutoAlert CEO Mike Dullea. “His strategic experience will help guide us as we continue to grow relationships with our current customers, and his experience overseas will help propel our rapid growth in international markets.”
     

    Adds Benintende: “I’m excited to join the AutoAlert team. Its track record of finding a better way to do business, for both dealerships and OEMs, is proven. My background will hopefully expand the reach of its already successful suite of products and services and continue to bolster its loyal customer base.”
     

    Benintende worked at Ford from the ground up starting at age 20, as an assembly line worker. From there, he held a series of marketing and sales positions domestically until he was promoted, in 1993, as Sales Manager of Export Operations of Saudi Arabia and Egypt. In 2002, Benintende became Managing Director of Ford Middle East and North Africa.

    During his tenure at Ford, Benintende was known not only for his leadership skills, but for fostering the same qualities as a mentor to other employees through integrity, collaboration, respect, courage and overall team building.

  • LAS VEGAS and KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 21, 2018 – AutoAlert, automotive’s leading data and predictive-analytics platform, unveils the industry’s first Consumer Experience Management (CXM) Platform.

    Combining its suite of Data Mining, Social Media, Messaging, CRM, and Reputation Management software solutions, AutoAlert has created a proprietary, big data platform, to draw insights about customers’ purchasing habits, and predict their next vehicle purchase. AutoAlert now provides something that was missing — action.

    “We quickly realized that big data has no value unless it is actionable both for the consumer and the employees at the dealership,” said Mike Dullea, Chief Executive Officer of AutoAlert.

    The newly developed Pando communication platform, along with its CRM-like process engine, was the missing link in making big data actionable for dealerships and OEMs looking to appeal to the needs of the modern shopper. It is this addition to the AutoAlert suite of products that creates the industry’s first Consumer Experience Management (CXM) Platform.

    Today’s consumers are expecting a personalized experience, both online and in the brick-and-mortar space, and this integration finally provides dealers with the actionable insights found in big data to make this experience possible.

    “Taking all of the data and presenting the customer with a One-to-One communication strategy was, quite frankly, the easy part,” Dullea said. “It is the art of taking that online knowledge, and seamlessly creating that same personalized experience when the consumer interacts with brick-and-mortar, that was challenging. With Pando, we cracked the code.”

    AutoAlert’s CXM Advanced Algorithms aren’t limited to the data insights found within their internal platform. Using a dynamic open API, they already have integrations with major CRMs and DMSs in the space, and all automotive software companies are welcome.

    “Customer expectations are changing faster than ever, and right now our industry is at a crossroads in trying to keep up with what appears to be moving targets. For years, dealerships, OEMs, and Software Consolidators, such as Cox Automotive and Vista Partners, have been unsuccessfully trying to adapt legacy DMS, CRM and Equity Mining solutions to help us engage our consumers in the right way,” said Todd Crossley, Dealer Principal at Gary Crossley Ford. “The efforts to combine separate platforms, at this point, could be considered a failure. There is no one to blame. This is a solution that needed to be built from the ground up.”

    Visit AutoAlert at the NADA Show at booth 3792C in the Las Vegas Convention Center to find out more about how CXM will revolutionize automotive.
