Do Retailers Even Have a Mobility Problem feat. Russ Lemmer

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Do automotive retailers even have a mobility problem? The framing of this question suggests that a problem has been identified, though perhaps under a false pretense. Think back to products and services that tech companies have introduced — Google Glass, Microsoft Zune, or Amazon’s Fire Phone — in an attempt to solve real problems. But what really were the problems these products were solving? In episode #95, we hear from Russ Lemmer, President and Chief Product Officer of Dealerware, a fully-connected, fully-digital fleet management platform. His knowledge and experience in learning the art of problem framing led to a successful acquisition of Silvercar, a car rental mobility solution which he helped co-found and was acquired by Audi in 2017. His process to uncover business problems entails applying the scientific methodology of identifying the situation, complication, stating a hypothesis, and testing to confirm or disprove the hypothesis. If performed correctly, this rigorous process results in iterations of a product until it actually solves a real problem. Tune in to learn how Russ and Dealerware have identified the problem of mobility within an automotive retail operation. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row] ...

Redefining Mobility in a Dealership feat. Sam Baker

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] The term 'mobility' often takes on different definitions depending on the context. According to cities, mobility is associated with the movement of people and goods. Movement of people and goods on scooters or ebikes are defined as micromobility. In a dealership environment, mobility has been traditionally reserved for disabled persons. Think of a van which has been gutted on the interior for wheelchair access, or where the suspension has been modified in order to bring the van closer to the ground for the installation of a ramp. In order to understand how mobility is being redefined at a dealership, it is best to take a macro view of the technology platform on real-world applications. On episode #91, we hear from Sam Baker, Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of Wunder Mobility. Wunder has a variety of mobility solutions for real-world applications, and understanding how a single technology platform can solve these problems better communicates how the term mobility will be redefined in a dealership.
