Sunnyvale, Calif – October 5, 2011– ResponseLogix®, Inc., the leading provider of automotive digital response management software for internet leads, today announced the launch of their ResponseLogix® RapidTouch™. With RapidTouch™, auto dealers create a powerful closed-loop internet sales process with an integrated first call after the delivery of a price quote. The synchronized delivery of the multi-vehicle price quote and phone call solves the two biggest challenges auto dealers face when trying to respond to Internet leads. RapidTouch was developed in partnership with DMEautomotive, the industry leader in science-based, results-driven automotive marketing.
Racing to the top of the car shopper’s list with the first call
Recent research from the Harvard Business Review (March 2011) indicates that, “Companies that try to contact potential customers within an hour of receiving queries are nearly 7 times as likely to have meaningful conversations with key decision makers as firms that try to contact prospects even an hour later. Yet only 37% of companies respond to queries within an hour.”
Auto dealers face that “moment of truth” when a consumer requests a price quote on a vehicle via the Internet. Dealers need to respond to car shoppers in minutes with a multi-vehicle price quote and a rapid phone call to engage the buyer. With RapidTouch, the phone outreach is executed well within that critical response time window every single time a price quote is delivered via ResponseLogix ExpressQuote or SmartQuote®.
Synchronized price quote delivery and RapidTouch amplifies dealer response to consumer
ResponseLogix partner dealers can now integrate SmartQuote® or ExpressQuote and RapidTouch into their internet sales process. The multi-vehicle price quote details sent by ResponseLogix to the consumer are leveraged by automotive specialists in DMEautomotive’s Customer Interaction Center to kick-off a personalized dialog with the intent to schedule a test drive for dealers. ResponseLogix partnered with DMEautomotive because of their 31 years of auto industry knowledge and unique expertise in managing inbound and outbound customer interactions for auto dealers and manufacturers.
ResponseLogix has integrated best of breed internet marketing practices and advanced internet marketing technology to deliver consumers an immersive and enjoyable car buying experience.
