Speaking at this week’s Motor Trader Summit, Karl Davis, managing director of Coachworks Consulting, said some dealers are losing vehicle sales and aftersales work by not fully utilising IT systems they already have in their facilities.“Digital utilisation in the dealer sector requires a major shake-up if an acceptable return on the digital investment is ever going to be achieved. “In a tight market some dealers are unnecessarily losing sales because they do not have simple processes to capture sufficient customer data in the first place or keep it updated and this is hitting their profitability. Davis said he frequently found that under-performing dealers do not have accurate showroom logs of customer enquiries whether they’re online, telephone or physical. “It’s outrageous that dealers are investing large sums in sophisticated dealer management systems (DMS) and software, which have significant ongoing costs, but are failing to use these tools to … [Read more...] about Dealers are failing to capture and manage customer data

A humble drug bust in Jacksonville, Fla., could result in a landmark ruling that challenges the rising popularity of the face recognition technology used to help put a man in jail for eight years. The appeal now underway in Florida's First District Court of Appeals could also yield further evidence of what many have asserted: that facial recognition tech is itself inherently biased against people of color.The potentially historic case revolves around a typical crime: the sale of $50 of crack to an undercover officer. Police say Willie Allen Lynch sold the drugs on Sept. 12, 2015, to cops who weren't able to capture him on the spot due to concerns the arrest would blow their cover.The cops did manage to snap photos of their suspect, however, and three weeks later ran the images through a statewide police database using an algorithm designed by the company MorphoTrust that searches 22 million Florida driver's licenses and more than 11 million law enforcement photos. An analyst looked at … [Read more...] about A $50 crack sale in Florida could yield significant ruling on facial recognition
