Customer Interface for Exchange

The mode of communication for the car exchange at the dealer level is made through below the line advertisement (BTL) and direct communication with the customer. Once the customer visits a dealer showroom, the sales consultants entertain the potential client and inform him about the car exchange process if the client is interested to purchase a newer car. To make the car exchange more lucrative, the dealer also offers additional exchange discounts to the customers who are interested to exchange their existing car to buy a newer one.
