Nashville, TN — Dataium, the largest aggregator of online automotive shopper behavior, today announced its first annual ASI (Auto Shopper Intensity) Awards. The awards are based on Dataium’s ASI index, the automotive industry’s only comprehensive forecast of consumer intent. Recognized by automotive executives as the industry’s best indicator of near term future sales, the ASI is also used to evaluate the effectiveness of marketing campaigns, identify early changes in consumer trends, and predict the success of new model introductions.
The ASI Awards are derived from an analysis of 200 million shopping sessions, isolating those makes and models which have risen to the top of the ASI index. By measuring consumer shopper intensity for every model, Dataium is able to identify vehicles in 21 automotive segments most desired by the automotive consumer.
“Auto manufacturers work very hard to build products that attract consumer interest and to build a fan base among auto shoppers”, stated Dataium CEO, Eric Brown. He added, “We are excited to highlight and recognize those manufacturers who have attained this level of consumer demand.”
Jason Ezell, President of Dataium, also commented, “Great cars are built and sold every day, and lots of exceptional people work very hard to make that happen. It’s a privilege for us to play a part in honoring those who do it well.”
Award winners will be announced in early February. Further, automotive marketers will also have access to a catalog of marketing, advertising, and showroom display material to promote their accomplishment and their vaunted position with the American consumer.
