4.00: Are your customers satisfied? Survey results from China, USA and Europe show that many are not

  • Did you know that over 33% of telematics owners in the USA have never used any of the services offered by their OEM? Or that only 30% of drivers are aware that they will have to pay subscription fees at the end of their free trial?
  • Within this presentation, SBD shares the results of a brand new satisfaction survey, covering 9 OEMs (GM, Ford, Hyundai, BMW, Audi, Renault, Nissan, Lexus and SAIC) across China, USA and Europe
  • Join us to find out answers to important questions like why Ford drivers still perceive basic hands-free functionality to be the most important feature of Sync, why 41% of Hyundai BlueLink drivers have never used any of their services, and how voice recognition continues to be one of the main frustration amongst drivers today
