AM has launched its AMi data service to franchised car and van dealers in the UK for free.
AMi provides benchmarking tools that enable comparisons to be made between franchised dealer groups and AM200 averages (AM200 is the top 200 dealer groups ranked by turnover).
Comparisons can also be made using manufacturer data in relation to brand health and manufacturer franchised networks.
AMi sources key information from credible providers including Sewells, National Franchised Dealers Association, Companies House, AM, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) and vehicle manufacturers ensuring its data is robust and current.
AMi contains over 500 records on dealer groups, plus all owner operators, including head office address, brands represented and locations.
It also collates NFDA Dealer Attitude Survey scores since 2008, new car registration figures from retail, fleet and business over the last 10 years, as well as all AM100 information.
AMi is updated on a continuous basis which ensures an accurate representation of the franchised dealer sector and enables users to track sector and dealer and manufacturer changes within individual dealer groups.
AMi tells you how your group’s financial performance compares against your peer group in the AM100, for example the top 10, 20, 50 and 100.
Map the locations of competitor groups and brands allowing for accurate network planning – and customer prospecting for suppliers’ sales teams
10-years of comprehensive financial data provides the means to accurately assess the long-term health of more than 200 dealer groups
