Case Study

ŠKODA redefines the retail experience with a managed mobility solution

Industry: Manufacturing


CWSI designed a bespoke Ivanti Cloud solution which enabled the seamless rollout and management of nearly 1,000 iPad devices across ŠKODA UK’s 130 retailers.

Following the rollout, the brand has reported an uplift in average vehicle selling prices and increased sales of vehicle accessories. The brand also saw an uplift in both customer experience and salesperson knowledge scores.

Here is a Case Study video production we created using a cinematic approach, with high end ARRI cameras, a gimbal for that extra smooth motion and quality Canon Cine lenses for that organic look and feel, with depth of field and creamy backgrounds. 

At we very much enjoyed working with our client to make this corporate video, based on through preparation and pre-production, a script with questions and a great amount of research to look into the subject in depth and be prepared for the filming session.

Gear used:

2 x ARRI Alexa Mini LF 
Freefly Movi Pro gimbal 
Canon Cine Cn-e lenses full set
Sound Devices MixPre 6 ii (32 Bit float audio)

What did ŠKODA need?

To support the growth of the brand and the ever-adapting automotive markets, ŠKODA UK wanted to increase customer satisfaction throughout the car purchasing process with the use of digital tools. It needed an integrated and mobile digital solution to present sales collateral such as brochures and informational materials to customers, as its processes were primarily paper based. The brand was also developing Digital Assistant, an iOS-based app used by sales teams to view and provide detailed information on every ŠKODA model.

What did CWSI do?

CWSI designed a Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solution based on Ivanti’s Cloud technology. This has enabled the seamless rollout and management of nearly 1,000 iPad devices across ŠKODA’s 130 UK retailers. As well as providing a collaborative, centrally managed platform for these point-of-sale devices, the secure solution underpins the company’s revolutionary retail experience for customers – the Digital Assistant app. CWSI worked closely with the development team in the creation of the app and its insights were crucial and shaped how the app was developed.

What have the results been?

Following the rollout, ŠKODA has reported an uplift in average vehicle selling prices and increased sales of vehicle accessories when the iPads are used. ŠKODA can now track uplifts in the average list price of new vehicles sold when the iPad is used verses not used which, in turn, will point towards higher revenue streams. Retailers can also host virtual appointments via the iPads with customers who may not wish to visit the showroom or give vehicle tours to customers from the comfort of their homes. The devices have also enabled automated aftercare, resulting in higher uptake of aftersales products and services.

Additionally, ŠKODA saw an uplift of +0.4 in the customer experience score when an iPad was used. It also saw a similar uplift in salesperson knowledge scores. The mobile and adaptable nature of the managed iPad solution is also ideally placed to support remote or hybrid working.

Note: A customer’s results are specific to its total environment/experience, of which Ivanti is a part. Individual results may vary based on each customer’s unique environment.
