The Lamborghini Revolution with Salesforce
In the official press released from Dreamforce 2019, Salesforce provided insights into this unique user-case scenario.
“When a Lamborghini is resold, the vehicle often goes through 800 to 1,000 certification checks that take place at the Lamborghini headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy. Conducting these thorough inspections require Lamborghini technicians to work with a massive network of resources—photographers, auction houses, dealerships, repair shops, newspapers, magazines, and other media sources—to curate the full history and most importantly verify all of the parts and service of each unique vehicle. This grueling process led Lamborghini to leverage Salesforce Blockchain to create a trust network between these distributed partners—enabling Lamborghini to authenticate each heritage vehicle faster and more securely than ever before.”
Safety, Security, and Trust – The Pillars of Salesforce Blockchain
Lamborghini is charting new territories and avenues in CX for heritage cars using Salesforce Blockchain. The car maker is digitizing its authentication process by creating a trusted network among technicians, repair shops, dealerships and more.
Salesforce is also helping the Sant’Agata Bolognese-based “bull” in extending the value of Lamborghini’s luxury heritage cars even further, each vehicle will come with an immutable record of service, including restoration, prior ownership and more. Additionally, because all authentication checks are managed by Lamborghini and its trusted partner network, each car is armed against potential counterfeiting—ensuring these exotic vehicles become even more valuable throughout their lifespan.
