The modern car dealership uses optimized lead pursuit to connect with buyers faster
100% Lead Acceptance.
For Santogal, Portugal’s most recognized automotive dealer group representing 24 car brands, delivering qualified leads in a timely manner to its 250 sales agents had presented an ongoing challenge for the company.
By implementing Lead Assign as their platform for intelligent lead distribution, Santogal has drastically improved their speed to lead. They now provide quick, dedicated sales nurturing for inbound web leads.
“Using Lead Assign greatly reduced our sales people’s lead response time,” says Alexandre Gomes, Digital Marketing Manager, Santogal.
“We started with a few agents testing the solution and, it quickly became clear that it made sense to extend Lead Assign to our entire sales team. Lead Assign has become a vital part of our day-to-day success.”
Increased Lead Velocity
In a highly competitive marketplace, customer service is a key differentiator to not only earning business, but retaining it. Santogal addresses this by providing expert sales staff to assist all clients throughout their purchasing journey.
Implementing Lead Assign has allowed these key sales agents to be connected to prospects in real-time.
Santogal enjoys the key advantage of connecting with potential customers almost immediately and while their intent is still strong, drastically boosting conversion.
Santogal’s improved in the time it takes to not only assign leads to agents, but for those agents to take action is a testament to their quick reaction time and excellent service.
Increased Agent Feedback
Sales insights and feedback is essential to improving a business’s sales strategy. Web leads offer a wide range of data points which can be tracked and analyzed to optimize the sales funnel.
By encouraging reporting on progress from their agents, Santogal is gaining visibility not just into the sales practices of their agents, but the success of their leads from various sources.
The Lead Assign patented technology encourages sales feedback collection from an easy to use, no-login or download required platform.
Encouraging Agent Success
Lead Assign’s agent scoring capabilities have allowed Santogal to identify and reward top users on the platform. By assigning points for not only leads which are accepted in a timely manner, but leads which are declined as well, Santogal is encouraging faster lead distribution.
The faster an agent accepts, the more likely they are to close that deal.
Declining a lead supports this model as well, encouraging agents to act as team players and not let leads sit idle unnecessarily. The higher an agent’s score, the more likely they are to receive quality leads.
Ultimately, having good leads, handled instantly by the best possible agent is what has led to Santogal’s continued success with the Lead Assign platform.
