"That’s what RESQ does. Its about putting you in the drivers seat during each and every customer contact," said Brad Title, CEO of Gubagoo Inc.

Gubagoo today announced the launch of RESQ, a landmark new application that will change the way dealerships use online technology to communicate with, and sell cars to, customers. RESQ gives dealers instant visibility into live chats, texts and phone calls, connecting them instantly in realtime to customer opportunities.

“Imagine that you’re out having dinner, or on a test drive, and you look down at your smartphone to monitor the conversations going on between Gubagoo operators and customers,” said Brad Title, CEO of Gubagoo Inc. “That’s pretty good, right? But now imagine having the ability to secretly whisper to those operators, telling them what to say – or simply take over the conversation and speak with the customer directly. That’s what RESQ does. It’s about putting you in the driver’s seat during each and every customer contact.”

With RESQ, dealerships know the Gubagoo conversations that are taking place in real time. Sales staff can monitor all live conversations and determine how best to proceed: they can ignore the conversations; “whisper” to Gubagoo operators (send a message that the consumer cannot see), or ‘RESQ’ the conversation and jump right in. Whatever the decision, RESQ puts the power in the hands of the people who need it: dealership sales team members.

RESQ also provides support to the service department; allowing service advisors the ability to receive realtime calls from customers from any given location. Together with TalkSmart, RESQ will enable the ability to send push notifications to any sales person or service advisors phone directly letting them know there is a customer trying to contact them.

Best of all, this new technology is completely mobile and available for iOS, Android and Web Browsers, so there’s no need to stay chained to a desk. RESQ goes where your sales team goes, and keeps them connected at all times. Additional functionality includes:

  • Real Time Push Notifications to dealership personnel phones
  • Whisper - Send private messages to the Gubagoo operators as you watch the conversation live
  • Full inventory integration into the app - push inventory in a chat or email to customers
  • Full Publisher integration into the app - push offers in a chat or email to customers
  • Full User and enterprise level reporting directly through the application
  • Full User reporting at a management level to track which dealership employees are using the app effectively

Gubagoo, one of the fastest growing and most effective chat and website engagement providers for automotive dealerships, tracks and scores over 18 million shoppers every month through its B.E.A.S.T. scoring technology and sends over 110,000 leads to dealerships every month. The integration of RESQ into Gubagoo further boosts the effectiveness of the company’s ChatSmart and TalkSmart products.

“RESQ puts the decision making in the hands of the dealership,” said Title. “It’s another way that Gubagoo is using technology to help dealers sell cars.”

Gubagoo will be demonstrating RESQ at the 2016 National Automobile Dealers Expo, Booth #2459C.
