In the automotive industry, we say we have video, but it’s not a true video production and I think consumers know the difference -- Tony Rhoades
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) February 11, 2011
Live Event Stream today announced that Gunn Automotive, a Top 100 Dealer Group as ranked by Ward’s Automotive and an innovator in creating a customer-centric environment for car buyers, is once again leading the automotive industry by placing their inventory online for internet shoppers in full motion video. By using Live Event Stream’s Video Inventory program to create full motion 360-degree videos, Gunn Automotive, based in San Antonio, Texas, is positioned to meet the demand of today’s video-hungry online customer.
“We are very excited to be working with Gunn to expand and enhance their online shopping experience,” said Phil Ly, President of Live Event Stream. “Gunn has proven over the years to be a leader in adopting forward-thinking strategies to increase customer satisfaction as well as drive sales, and we look forward to integrating Live Event Stream into their existing model for online content production, distribution and delivery. By using Live Event Stream instead of simple photos, Gunn can provide customers with a richer viewing experience – leading to higher store visits and purchase inquiries.”
Live Event Stream’s Video Inventory and Live-Walk-Around™ Programs are the first of their kind for the automobile dealer industry. With full inventory integration, a simple hardware platform, native Flash® encoding and a batch video distribution process, dealers are able to easily and cost-effectively showcase their offerings in high quality, full motion video and engaging audio. The lack of such a solution in the past has forced dealers to rely on pictures or slide shows to present products online.
“In the automotive industry, we say we have video, but it’s not a true video production and I think consumers know the difference,” said Tony Rhoades, Director of Ecommerce for Gunn Automotive. “We are interested in being ahead of the game, giving our customers the kind of experience that they expect while online – something that is easy to use and provides them with greater detail and transparency.”
The Gunn Auto Group will use Live Event Stream to provide the full circle content creation and distribution of the video for Gunn’s seven franchise locations. Live-Event-Stream offers a DIY solution for dealers and an outsourced service solution through select partners. With dealers looking for options, having both models allows Live Event Stream to serve a broader client base while giving the savvy internet shopper access to videos on a variety of computer and mobile platforms.
