Leading the Way for the 'Phy-gital' Future


Aston Martin is one of the world’s most iconic British brands. With a design and automotive excellence heritage of more than 100 years, today, the company is the world’s only independent luxury car group that manufactures luxury sports cars and grand tourers. It aims to be the greatest British car company that creates the most beautiful and accomplished automotive art in the world.


Reaching out to new audiences

Translating brand value, reputation, and aspiration to more audiences, especially the strategically important Chinese market, was the next step on the company’s evolution. Aston Martin’s 2020 Annual Report states one of its key business strategies is to, “Reinvigorate marketing initiatives to raise brand awareness and drive volumes including digitally led, personalized marketing engagements.”

But with business and marketing shifting online – even for luxury cars – the current digital platform was no longer fit for purpose. It was a collection of disconnected sites that lacked customer focus and comprised of many different experiences across different platforms, with no centralized management.

Aston Martin had three main challenges: delivering customer-first innovation, gathering and using data to drive better decision making, and creating a path for future growth.



Enhancing the customer experience

By deploying Sitecore Experience Platform™ (XP), Aston Martin has built a digital experience platform that has consolidated disparate sites under the domain and provides customers with a holistic experience. It focuses on giving customers the information they want when they need it. Flexible data modelling makes it easy to build new components that cross-pollenate content throughout the site. The digital platform enables Aston Martin to roll out a constant stream of new features every month, such as enhanced Dealer Pages and its online Owners Guides database, quickly and easily. Sitecore tools simplify content translation, helping to expand Aston Martin’s global reach faster.

This platform paves the way for the business to offer ecommerce capabilities in the future.

Renato Bisignani, Head of Marketing and Communications, says, “ With Sitecore, we’ve been able to improve our UX and UI, and our ambition is to further enhance our platforms to provide a more personalized, considered, and integrated digital journey.”
