CallRevu Announces CRM Certified Integration with Elead CRM

CallRevu Announces CRM Certified Integration with Elead CRM


CallRevu and Elead, a leader in customer contact management, CRM, and dealership software for automotive retailers, have just introduced the seamless integration of CallRevu into the Elead CRM platform. CallRevu provides call management tools for dealers to handle phone calls, improve employee phone skills, and discover more sales and service opportunities through live, actionable alerts. Every phone call is an opportunity to get or keep a customer and the only way to increase sales, ongoing loyalty, and improve CSI is to focus on your caller’s journey.

Born in a dealership, in 2007, to understand why an ad campaign didn’t sell more cars, CallRevu puts dealers in contact with more phone leads and prevents any opportunities from being missed, improving chances that they will turn into sales. Since inception, CallRevu’s approach has been complex and more labor intensive because dealers need real-time missed opportunity alerts, along with great call data and reporting. To achieve these goals, CallRevu pioneered the industry’s first and only process to certify live agents that listen to all important calls from beginning to end.

The advanced integration brings all of the CallRevu data and functionality inside of Elead CRM platform. With a single login, you can get the data you need to have familiar conversations that lead to appointments. Because CallRevu listens to every call, the CRM is populated with only true sales opportunities. The average lifespan of a phone up is 9 days; dealers will benefit from the integration by getting phone ups into the CRM so follow up happens before a caller buys somewhere else.

Chip King, Founder and Managing Partner addresses the importance of earning asking and receiving customer contact information for proper entry into CRM. “Our bench-marking call study indicates that the average dealership fails to obtain customer contact information 52% of the time. CRM administrators tend to only want to use caller stated contact information, as it is not only accurate but the preferred customer experience. Here at CallRevu, we are pleased to automate our dealer client workflows, and continuing to stress that success comes with an optimal caller’s journey and that only happens when you earn, ask, and receive contact information”, says Chip.

“Without a doubt, Elead understands the importance of measuring phone performance. The CallRevu team has done a great job writing telephony integration standard APIs”, stated Mark Queen, partner of Elead. “Last year, they recognized and responded to an industry-wide need for measuring outbound call productivity on a daily basis. It’s a pleasure to partner with companies who share an open architecture belief, as we do. Secure integration allows the dealer, not their vendors, to decide how best to run their business.”

Dealers will be able to view the full transcription, the ad source, the agent who handled, the vehicle information, and other important data without switching between tabs or systems to follow up on missed opportunities. Effective management of your ad dollar requires that leads are followed up on. Managers can be confident that agents are following up with leads in their CRM system by making outbound calls with a click-to-call. In addition to tracking the calls your team makes, CallRevu creates more opportunities for agents to connect with customers through texting. Offering text visibility and response tools directly inside the CRM system, agents can now double their contact rates.

Tom Harsha, Executive Vice President, says, “We are excited about the integration. It provides dealers with additional efficiencies, which in turn will help them maximize their CRMs to follow up with customers and sell more cars. We believe that these new partnerships also support our mission to improve the customer experience and our laser focus on helping automobile dealers measure and improve the most common contact point with their customers—the phone.”
