Auto TraderUK digital automotive marketplace Auto Trader has enlisted the help of Selligent Marketing Cloud, a B2C marketing automation platform, to better engage customers via their mobile devices.

In addition, Auto Trader will be able to create customised web experiences based on real-time customer behaviour.

“We are excited to welcome Selligent Marketing Cloud as our selected partner, leaning on their omnichannel platform functionality to help us provide value and relevance to both consumers and car retailers,” said Sarah Jones, customer relationship management manager at Auto Trader. “Selligent Marketing Cloud’s marketing solution will help us ensure we are engaging with our audience in the right way, and at the right time.”
