Staying stuck in your ways can turn out to be really harmful in today’s era. Everything is moving forward at a breakneck pace, therefore there is hardly any chance for a breather. Under these circumstances, willingly remaining at one place can take you down. Every now and then we see one massive transformation in how we go about certain things. These changes turn up for a reason. The purpose of these changes is to help us in raising our ceiling once we have peaked using a particular methodology. The advancements in the technological sphere have set us up for another such transformation, and the automotive industry joined the party as well. The introduction of elements like machine learning, artificial intelligence, big data, etc has put the automotive industry on a course where, if carried out in the right manner, these innovations can really shake up the entire industry to the point of no return. This transformation of procedures has so far proved to be hugely beneficial; however, there is another reason here apart from just technological excellence. There are some companies in the industry that are working tirelessly to make this transition a smooth one for the dealers, and a productive one for the customers. Here are some of the companies that are driving this change
