DealBuilder and Elead Service Honored at 2018 AWA
Atlanta, GA – April 10, 2018 – Elead today announced that its DealBuilder digital retailing platform was honored with two 2018 Automotive Website Awards (AWA) at the NADA Convention & Expo. Additionally, the Elead Service retention suite took home an AWA award in the Fixed Ops category. The three awards were presented to Elead at a ceremony hosted by PCG Companies on March 22nd at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.
“Digital retailing was a major theme at NADA this year, and the response to our rollout of DealBuilder was incredible,” said Bill Wittenmyer, Partner with Elead. “We are thrilled that forward-thinking dealers are embracing this new technology as a way to attract new customers and improve their car-buying experience.”
PCG Companies’ Vanguard Award is a new category this year, presented to companies and products leading the way in new developments in the automotive industry. A statement on the AWA website summarizes why Elead received this prestigious honor:
“The portable DealBuilder Showroom and the Online app provide all the tools for dealership personnel to manage the buying process. It is structured to be convenient and satisfying for the consumer and yet, highly informative for dealership management. A key separation factor of DealBuilder is that the financial calculations are done with Elead’s industry-leading desking suite. Payments are calculated to the penny in all 50 states and counties in the U.S. DealBuilder can truly facilitate the entire process – automated and streamlined – all the way through loan and lease documentation and delivery.”
DealBuilder is a digital retailing application that guides customers through the entire car-buying experience, while allowing dealers to own the leads and retain control throughout the process. DealBuilder can be used either in-store with DealerBuilder Showroom, or on a dealer’s website with DealBuilder Online. The Showroom and Online versions are synchronized for a seamless online to offline experience. Both apps are fully integrated into Elead CRM and can be used on a desktop, mobile tablet or smartphone.
According to PCG Companies, the Elead Service platform distinguishes every important step in the dealership service experience, from intake to repair completion, while streamlining operational processes and incorporating crucial marketing tools to help dealers capitalize on every possible sales opportunity.
The Elead Service suite centralizes every component of service drive technologies into one comprehensive view; including online service scheduling, lane applications, multi-point inspections and shop management, automated marketing and service advisor training.
