Dallas, TX and Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) September 24, 2014 -- Lead Launch by Car Wars has been named a finalist for the DrivingSales Innovation Cup Award for the Most Innovative Dealership Solution of 2014. Lead Launch was selected by a panel of dealer judges from a very competitive field and will be presented onstage at the 2014 DrivingSales Executive Summit (DSES), held Sunday, October 12th through Tuesday, October 14th, 2014 at the Bellagio Las Vegas.
Lead Launch is a dealership solution by Car Wars that quickly recognizes missed opportunity phone calls, and directly connects those opportunities back to members of the sales team that can properly salvage those leads. The solution utilizes live, human reviewers to categorize calls and flag any missed opportunities, from a call that was never connected, to a sales rep that failed to ask for the appointment. Lead Launch is also crucial in making sure prospects are connected directly to a sales team member over the phone after they have filled out an Internet lead form. When Lead Launch recognizes an Internet lead, it automatically places a call to the entire sales team. Once a sales team member picks up the call, Lead Launch provides a concise summary of the Internet lead and connects the call to the prospect.
“For each of the past four years, The DrivingSales Innovation Cup has introduced game-changing and realistic dealership innovations to our industry, each selected by a dealer panel, and each armed with a solution designed to change our industry for the better. We congratulate Car Wars for joining this impressive and elite group with Lead Launch,” said DrivingSales Founder and CEO Jared Hamilton. “We look forward to sharing Car Wars’ progressive solution with attendees at the 2014 DrivingSales Executive Summit.”
DrivingSales created the Innovation Cup Awards to recognize solutions introduced or enhanced in 2014 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 for the dealer panel and attendees at the DSES on Monday, October 13th.
The Innovation Cup Award competition is part of an exciting DSES line up this year, which includes high-profile keynotes from digital expert and best-selling author Brian Solis; SEO ‘Wizard’ Rand Fishkin; eMarketer’s lead digital auto analyst, Mike Hudson; Kellogg School of Management marketing professor Florian Zettelmeyer, and online marketing pioneer, Bryan Eisenberg, as well as dealer-selected breakout sessions from industry experts and dealers on topics which offer actionable strategies designed to improve operations, effectiveness and profitability in six distinct categories: Advanced General Marketing, Dealer Operations, Mobile, Search, Website Optimization, and Social Media, and include topics ranging from wearable technology to improving dealership culture.
