New York, NY and Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
HookLogic’s Lead2Show solution has been named a finalist for the DrivingSales Innovation Cup Award for the Most Innovative Dealership Solution of 2012. Lead2Show was selected by a panel of dealer judges from a very competitive field and will be presented onstage at the 2012 DrivingSales Executive Summit (DSES), held Sunday, October 21st through Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012 at the Bellagio Las Vegas.
“We are honored to be a finalist for the 2012 Innovation Cup Award. Over the last year, our Lead2Show solution has evolved with anticipation of new market trends, consumer behaviors, and dealer needs. Progressive dealers across the country have stopped guessing and are using factual data to execute on more sales and lower advertising costs. This recognition further validates that we’re moving our technology in the right direction, and we’re more motivated than ever to continue doing so,” said David Metter, president of automotive for HookLogic.
HookLogic is the industry leader for understanding and influencing shopper decisions to win the moment of truth. HookLogic’s Lead2Show solution is an industry-leading tool that automatically determines if a third-party or OEM lead is ready to buy. Lead2Show instantaneously auto responds to the in-market consumer with a customized offer to generate incremental showroom visits. HookLogic uses best-in-class data sets from partners like RL Polk and Dataium as well as off-line data matching from call tracking providers to generate the highest quality and most desirable showroom visits for dealers’ sales teams.
DrivingSales created the Innovation Cup Awards to recognize solutions introduced or enhanced in 2012 whose innovative approaches have produced significant results for dealers. Dealership solution-providers submitted applications online, vendor names were blanked out, and a panel of dealer judges selected the finalists. Finalists will present their solution onstage at the DSES on Monday, October 22nd. A panel of dealer judges will then ask questions of each presenter and score each product. The solution with the highest score will win the Innovation Cup Award for “Most Innovative Solution of 2012.”
“We believe the Innovation Cup Award represents one of the highest accolades our industry has to offer its dealership solution providers: the vote of those who understand its benefits the most - auto dealers,” said DrivingSales Founder and CEO Jared Hamilton. “We congratulate HookLogic on being recognized as an outstanding innovator by auto dealers and we look forward to seeing this exciting and progressive solution presented onstage at the DrivingSales Executive Summit!”
The Innovation Cup Award is part of an exciting DSES line up this year, which includes high-profile keynotes from Billy Beane of ‘Moneyball’ fame, SEO ‘superstar’ Rand Fishkin, mobile experience expert Luke Wroblewski, renowned leadership trainer Jim Dance, prominent Northwestern University marketing professor Florian Zettelmeyer and an exclusive presentation from Facebook and Google. Last year's summit was standing room only, and although DSES 2012 will allow for an expanded number of registrants, it is expected to sell out.
