Car-X needed a turn-key solution that would adapt to their growing marketing and business needs. Such a solution would have to function at both the corporate and local levels, providing integration between national co-op marketing programs and the local distributors. This marketing platform needed to include:
- Corporate visibility into local marketing activities
- Detailed activity reporting
- Flexible digital creative ad building
- Online proofing and approval process
- Online prospect insights including geo- and demographic information
- Streamlined, simple billing process
Any new solution had to be flexible for their independent dealers and include preset Car-X business rules and requirements. For example, Car-X had pre-determined data selection rules that needed to be incorporated into the campaign setup workflow, but the process needed to be flexible enough for the independent dealer to change those business rules according to their local market. It also needed to support the changing needs of expanding corporate and independent dealer networks.
After a detailed discovery process Bluewater built, personalized, and launched Fusion for Car-X. This personalized technology platform focused on data management, distributed marketing strategies and robust analytics.
