At Ali & Sons, we work tirelessly across our multiple divisions be it sales, customer service, branding & marketing, post sales, showroom operationsetc to ensure a seamless and positive experience for both our customers and the Volkswagen brand, " avered Ammar Johmani, Brand Manager for Volkswagen @ Ali & Sons.
" The need of the hour is fleet footedness, adaptability and being future ready. Customer tastes, preferences are fast changing and that is compounded by the over supply of information, products and a hyper competitive environment. Not to forget the deficit that seems to be creeping in of trust, time and resources from a customer point of view. Brands have to be highly vigilant in understanding customer and market insights, respect and acknowledge feedback emanating and address them in a fashion that instils confidence, loyalty and pride of ownership. Our initiative of looking at Digital Marketing as a serious tool in our armoury for Volkswagen to engage meaningfully with our existing and potential customers is therefore a well thought out strategy and we believe strongly that ISD Global with their vast experience in the digital marketing spaceand insight of working with top notch brands across multiple global markets is the ideal agency to partner with and realise our big picture, " concluded Johmani.
" Exclusivity comes with a huge amount of responsibility. The fact that we are the only authorised dealers for Volkswagen in Abu Dhabi & Al Ain might seem to be a misnomer. There are high expectations that the brand has from us and rightly so.Our past track record at Ali & Sonsof delivering exceptional sales volumes year on year and impeccable service standards only motivates the brand to demand higher value from us as a dealership. All our continuedinvestments be it in showroom & infrastructure augmenting, marketing & branding, after sales, customer service, IT and allied services reflects our continued and unflinching committment to leverage and deliver the maximum value for the Volkswagen brand.
Our partnership with ISD Global, an agency we respect a lot for their high quality and service standards and the willingness to go beyond at all times in the quest for realising the common goal, and an agency that seems to have a strongunderstanding ofmodern daybrand marketing,is yet another positive step that we have taken in the building of the Volkswagen brand in our territories", added Salim Sayyid, Marketing Manager, Volkswagen at Ali & Sons.
" The Digital Marketing initiative that we have undertaken at ISD Global on behalf of Ali & Sons Volkswagen came after almost 8 months of research, planning and deliberations. Both sides definitely felt the need given the need of the hour but careful thought was given to first clearly lay out the roadmap, bring it to the attention of key internal stakeholders at Ali & Sons, ensure that it resonates and respects the overall corporate and brand marketing objectives of Volkswagen, get the buy in and then roll out the plan. The initative is being closely monitored with weekly MIS reports being provided to Ali & Sons for them to understand both activity & progress and to evaluate need for course corrections, should it be called for.
