Why the Auto Care™ ACPN conference is important to the automotive aftermarket – Because #datamatters
PDM is a proud sponsor of the 2020 Automotive Content Professionals Network (ACPN) Knowledge Exchange Virtual Conference. As the name implies, the conference is an important “knowledge exchange” of data technology and techniques you can implement today to help improve sales and communication with your business partners. The record number of 800+ attendees ranged from content professionals, sales and marketing managers, buyers and category managers, and executives, all taking the time to learn about new technologies and techniques to help their companies today to sell more products, reduce costs and improve efficiencies. Over the course of 3-days, there were keynote speakers, break out sessions, Auto Care™ industry updates, and audience interaction, all offered for FREE to anyone wanting to learn more about product and industry data best practices. Below are just a few of PDM’s staff favorite picks from the 3-day conference.
Auto Care™ 2020 ACPN Knowledge Exchange Virtual Conference Day 3 – It’s a Wrap!
Thank you to the Breakout Session speakers, Carl Cross at Brake Parts, Inc. and Matt Fowler Director of Sales Snap36. Your presentations and group interactions were helpful to understand the essential tools needed for a complete data management toolbox and how to create a digital product content strategy. Both topics can help all of us improve efficiency, costs, and most importantly sales.

- Auto Care™ provides Best Practices not only for ACES & PIES but also for Digital Assets.
- According to Frost & Sullivan, “By 2020, customer experience, is expected to overtake price and product as a key brand differentiator.”
