Mario Montag was the keynote speaker at the AASA Technology Conference in Florida this week.  The topic was “Predicting Parts Performance in the Field.”  There were 175 participants discussing how technology is impacting the automotive after market segments.

“We are all very aware that technology is changing and, to some extent, disrupting the way we do business in the independent aftermarket.” – Opening remarks from Chris Gardner, vice president of marketing and member services of AASA, for the 2015 AASA Technology Conference.

Mario also stated that there’s a large disconnect between the scientists that are putting together the current algorithms for predictive technology and the people who know the business.
