ATL Autobahn, exclusive distributors of the world’s leading Luxury car brands, BMW and MINI provided a riveting presentation on the company’s best customer service practices, at the annual BMW Importers conference held in Lima, Peru this past Wednesday. The executive team, led by Chief Executive Officer   at ATL Automotive and Sandals Resort International, Adam Stewart represented the Caribbean region at event, which hosted 100 of the top BMW importers in Latin America.

“We were proud and humbled to be invited to represent Jamaica amongst such esteemed company and perhaps share some of our successes. Jamaica is renowned throughout the world for not just the warmth of its people but also the high level of customer service available in our country.” Stewart commented.

Stewart maintains the weight of digital marketing platforms in the new age customer experience, but asserts that it commands much more than just being present stating “speed and resolution matter – that should be standard, but it’s the personal touch and accuracy of information that turns an average experience into an exceptional one” Stewart affirmed. Stewart also highlighted that “while much of our interaction with our customers has transitioned to online communication, the  need to provide better human service and that is truly, wholeheartedly what we set out to achieve and we do it through firstly recruiting the right people, incorporating the latest systems and then training, training and more training!”

Co-presenter Dr. Philip Brown, Group Director, Training Standards at Sandals Resorts International who enlightened the audience with a presentation that covered Sandals Resorts and the much-lauded Sandals Corporate University also offered insight to some of the secrets behind the Group’s leading customer service practices. Brown attributed much of the difference in the ATL/SRI approach to the sheer passion for meeting the changing needs of its customers. “Our customers are no longer confined to a single means to connect with us and our brands. While we realise how important it is to evolve with them by being more present online and implementing more innovative ways to enhance their digital customer experience, the human touch and the will and ability to do what you’ve got to do to satisfy will never be replaced however the world changes.” said Dr. Brown. ATL Automotive and ATL Autobahn’s integration of the video presentation software, CitNOW serves as a testament to this commitment. CitNOW videos are used in Jamaica exclusively by ATL Automotive and ATL Autobahn as a best practice tool that offers a more tailored customer experience through personalised sales and service video messages that cater to the unique needs of each customer.

ATL Autobahn opened its showroom doors earlier this year as the first Jamaican automotive company to earn the exclusive BMW dealership for 8 other territories within the Caribbean region.  The accomplishment also provides ATL Autobahn with a unique opportunity to share its best practices with its regional counterparts and further enhance the auto industry by developing distinctive customer experiences through state of the art facilities and gaming changing training initiatives.

Automotive company ATL Automotive are set to sign an agreement this week after being named Regional Master Dealers for BMW and MINI in Jamaica and eight countries throughout the Caribbean.

The regional appointment, a first ever for a Jamaican automotive company, followed a nine-month tender process that saw ATL Automotive overcome international bids from across Europe and the Americas.

On 3rd March 2016, ATL Automotive will take direct control of the sales and aftersales of BMW and MINI in Jamaica and will play a regional management role in an additional eight other countries: Trinidad and Tobago, the Bahamas, Cayman, Curacao, Barbados, Aruba, Saint Lucia and Suriname starting from 1st April.

Adam Stewart, Chief Executive Officer and Deputy Chairman commented, “This a tremendous moment for ATL Automotive and perfectly caps a year of long-term strategic planning that saw us make bold decisions, with our customers at the centre, on where we saw the future of the automotive industry going. This appointment has come to fruition because of our drive, peerless regional know how and good, old fashioned endeavour; great credit must go to the minds and management of the ATL Automotive team. We are delighted not just to be appointed, but to headquarter this regional operation right here in Kingston is huge and a great testament to the talent we have here in Jamaica.

Similarly to when Sandals ventured outside of Jamaica to Antigua in 1991, this is just the first step in the realization of ATL Automotive’s own regional ambitions and who better to do it with two of the world’s finest automotive brands?” Stewart continued.

BMW/MINI Jamaica is set to be operated as an entirely separate company, ATL Autobahn will be celebrated with the construction of two world-class, state-of-the-art sales and service facilities in the country’s capital Kingston, and for the first time ever, Montego Bay.

In addition to providing world class sales and service to Jamaican motorists, ATL Automotive/Autobahn will serve as a central hub to include the distribution of cars and parts, service support, regional marketing initiatives as well as the central training ground via the company’s revered ATL Academy of Excellence.

“Aside from our new role in Jamaica, we’ll be working closely with the existing dealer network, some of the best automotive dealers in the Caribbean, and supporting them with a full suite of our services. Whether it’s regional sales and aftersales support, game changing marketing initiatives or comprehensive training programmes, our mandate is to drive the BMW and MINI brands throughout the region. BMW and MINI are two of the most celebrated brands in Jamaica and existing and future drivers are at the forefront of our planning. We’ll be working hand-in-glove with the outgoing dealers, Stewart Autosales, to ensure the smoothest transition possible so that our mutual customers receive the highest level of care imaginable and practically an invisible transition for them. We thank Stewart’s Autosales for their professionalism and BMW for sharing our vision.” Stewart concluded.

Existing BMW and MINI customers will have their service inclusive packages and new car warranties continued to be fully honoured by BMW and MINI.

ATL Automotive was formed in 1997 as the authorized new car distributor for leading car giant Honda, and while serving Jamaica for over a decade has set the benchmark for automobile sales and service in the island. With the recent introduction of more world class brands to the family, ATL Automotive now encompasses several divisions exclusively distributing the world’s finest automobile brands, from state-of-the-art showrooms and service facilities in Kingston and Montego Bay, strengthening its undisputed position as the country’s foremost automotive group and changing the face of motoring in Jamaica forever.
