Dear Colleagues,

Our Digital Retailing Survey, in collaboration with Auto Trader and ICDP is still live and it is essential we can get as many franchised dealers as possible to complete it. The research will provide actionable insight on how you can support consumers to complete more of the car buying process online, improve efficiency through your operations and set yourself up for success in the future. These insights will help improve the car buying experience and help understand how opportunities and efficiencies can be created for all retailers. Please complete the survey HERE.

This week, the NFDA policy team attended a debate in the Houses of Commons around the state of business in the UK. This debate facilitated a positive discussion with a member of the House of Lords, discussing the size and importance of the retail Automotive industry, as well as the issues that are currently facing it.
