About the Dealer Daily project
Toyota needed to build a new dealer communication system, for Toyota, Lexus and Scion brands, to create a more enhanced and agile system that could facilitate its dealers in meeting the demands of today’s technology-driven customers. Infosys helped Toyota create a simplified, intuitive, intelligent system that consolidated these disparate applications and adapted to the current market trends, improved efficiencies and maximized sales.
