In a few short months, dealerships using RESQ have seen their lead-to-sales ratios soar

Today, Gubagoo announces that RESQ, it’s newly developed app, is generating a 300% increase in lead-to-sale conversions in dealerships. RESQ gives dealers instant visibility into live chats, texts and phone calls, connecting them instantly, in real-time, to their existing customers as well as connecting them online to potential customers.

By providing new and existing customers instant access to a dealership’s salespeople, service advisors and inventory, as well as to various incentives, RESQ enables dealers to reach the right audience at the right time, ultimately bridging the gap between the dealer and the consumer.

“RESQ puts dealers in control of every customer contact via smartphone and has already made a huge difference in dealership ROI and ‘rescued’ sales,” said Brad Title, CEO of Gubagoo Inc. “In a few short months, dealerships using RESQ have seen their lead-to-sales ratios soar."

RESQ empowers dealerships to monitor every chat conversation in real time so they can determine how best to proceed. It allows dealership personnel to view any operator’s and potential customer’s conversation, then “whisper” (send a notification) to the dealership sales/service person who can ‘RESQ’ the conversation by jumping right in and take control of the discussion.

“Building on the success of RESQ, we are also announcing a significant advance in RESQ technology - one that offers unprecedented benefits to the automotive industry, helping streamline the online car buying process,” said Title. “For the first time, dealers will be able to advance the potential customer’s purchase journey -- from initial chat, to video inventory review, to credit application, to trade-in forms."

RESQ’s new features are designed to provide even more efficiency and control, increased conversion, and an improved consumer experience at the dealership by enabling dealerships to:

  • Receive Real-Time Notifications
  • Send Whisper Messages
  • RESQ any live chat, text or call
  • Comprehensive Enterprising Reporting
  • Send Inventory
  • Send Offers and Incentives
  • Send Credit Applications
  • Send Trade-In Appraisal
  • Service Scheduling
  • Send Quick Links

“Gubagoo’s RESQ’s technology is all about saving dealerships time and money, while increasing their opportunity from lead to sale,” continued Title. “RESQ goes wherever the dealership sales team goes, keeping them connected 24/7 to not only ‘rescue sales’ but, now, provide any customer the information they need."

RESQ also provides support to the service department, pushing real-time calls from customers to service advisors’ mobile phones wherever they may be on the shop floor. Together with Gubagoo’s TalkSmart and ChatSmart, RESQ can send push notifications to any salesperson or service advisor’s mobile phone, notifying them that a customer needs assistance. In return, the service advisor or sales team member, on their mobile phone, is able to ‘whisper’ back to the Gubagoo operator, giving direction, or seamlessly requesting the call or chat to be handed over to them and take control of the conversation from any location.

RESQ technology is both desktop and mobile and available for iOS, Android and web browsers.

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.

Gubagoo is demonstrating the new RESQ features at DrivingSales Executive Summit in Las Vegas, October 23th – 25th.
