18:40 Lead scoring drives revenues in the used car market
The current market share of used cars sold by dealers in the UK is ~60%. Knowing when a customer is likely change their car compared with one who is only interested in looking around a showroom could greatly improve the efficiency of a dealership. Using vehicle registration numbers, we were able to acquire an enriched dataset full of vehicle and customer details. This dataset was used to train a machine learning model that predicted the quality of a lead for an online used car marketplace. The model is now accessible via an API and is fully integrated into the online business. The results of the model have led to an increase in business revenues by 26%
