“These figures reflect the concerted strategy across the brands and our dealer network, aligned under our GO5+ mid-term-plan objectives.
The Renault performance coincides with them working alongside 3d Marketing Group since September last year.
Mark Hawkins, National Business Sales & PRO+ Manager at Renault UK Ltd: said “I am delighted with the data and market insight reports that 3d Marketing produced for me; as a result Renault UK has encouraged its Pro+ dealer network (specialist business dealers) to use this information as a key part of their marketing and prospecting activity planning.
“The results for those participating, increased local market-share and boosted SME penetration.
“When I outline the quarterly targets for the Dealership network I encourage them to work with 3d Marketing as the support they can give to identify specific business targets is second to none”
