Southeast Toyota Finance, a subsidiary of JM Family Enterprises, is the leading provider of retail financing and leasing for new Toyota vehicles in the southeast United States. Known for their innovative finance programs and exceptional customer service, they came to Verndale to upgrade their digital experience and optimize every customer touch point to be helpful, personal, and intuitive.
We rebuilt their Sitecore instance to focus on creating a more streamlined user experience that enhances every stage of the customer journey, including an initiative around improving their online collections process. We also partnered with Southeast Toyota Finance to reduce past-due collections by optimizing the customer experience. We took multi-dimensional personas to define customer journeys and provide personalized experiences along timelines based on profile and user behavior, including email campaigns with customized payment notifications.
Southeast Toyota Finance customers can now move through a seamless multi-channel user experience with better self-service and reduced strain on the call center. Through the collections experience initiative, we created a humanized and guided experience for customers in the late-stage collections process to re-engage them. As a result, Southeast Toyota Finance saw a 700% increase in leasing customers who promised to pay within the 7-day performance window. The initiative lays the foundation to develop specialized experiences around unique audience groups, including military, pre-qualifying, and total loss.
