Dataforce Studies & Analyses

A long-term study of German company car parc’s and their representative fleet managers provides us with an extensive potential for analysis.

Thanks to a continuous survey begun in 1993 you can see Changes and Trends in the Behavior and Construction of companies with automotive fleets. With one of the key points being the ability to evaluate the data according to the various fleet sizes. This primary research is complemented by additional surveys of car parc/fleet managers, which are conducted at regular intervals. This has generated a Portfolio of Standard Studies and Analyses which are able to delve deeply in the German TrueFleet market.

Powering fleets: we’ll show you how it’s done!

Fleet managers plan to double the proportion of e-vehicles and plug-in hybrids in their fleets by the middle of next year – despite some concerns.

The current Dataforce analysis Powertrain focuses on the development and use of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles – and the associated infrastructure. Also the question “Why are the fleets not yet electrified?” is answered: Short ranges, high acquisition costs, lack of funding or incomplete infrastructure are the classic arguments. However, the analysis shows that another factor has apparently been underestimated so far. That’s why our market research experts present a roadmap on how manufacturers can exactly meet the needs of fleet managers.

Future developments can be predicted fairly accurately with the right methodology today. Plans, strategies and tactics can now be made for the next year. With the detailed results of the 2019-2020 forecast of the relevant fleet market, the special factors and the private market paired with a detailed brand and model forecast, Dataforce provides the basis for Germany’s decision-makers in the automotive market.

Telematics is becoming increasingly important in the fleet business, or is the impression deceptive?

Which telematics systems are particularly in demand, and what does all this have to do with the driver’s license check? Cheaper insurance premiums, and suddenly telematics will be attractive, even for you?

Ad-Hoc Survey

The ad-hoc survey also called Fleet Insight, gives quick answers to your own questions. It may be the acceptance of a new product, the brand awareness, the choice between two options, or what is important to the customer and to be explored quickly.

The interview just has to fit in max. 5 questions and have the target group fleet.

Market Research

Openness to the customer’s ideas as well as a feeling for the respective target group are the alpha and omega of market research projects. For each project, we once again ask ourselves how to define the target group and what questionnaire and analysis technology are bringing the most meaningful results.
