BURLINGTON, April 1, 2020 – Dealer.com, the premier end-to-end digital marketing solution and partner for automotive dealerships, was recognized for its outstanding website performance and personalization capabilities; winning two categories in PCG Companies 13th annual Automotive Website Awards (AWAs). Dealer.com was honored among many of the industry’s leading automotive digital marketing vendors and most innovative products in 2020.
“With new technology capable of transforming dealer websites into full-service Digital Storefronts and data optimization that delivers topnotch personalized digital experiences, we are helping dealers make evolving consumer behavior work to their advantage while driving long-term customer loyalty,” said Bob George, assistant vice president of product management at Dealer.com. “It’s an incredible honor to be recognized with these AWA accolades in areas that we take so much pride in, our website platform and data optimization.”
Dealer.com solutions received the following awards for U.S. Websites and Digital Marketing, a third AWA win for Dealer.com Experience Optimization:
- U.S. WEBSITES: Dealer.com Websites
Dealer.com websites are fueled by user experience research, data science and exclusive integrations with Cox Automotive brands. By leveraging all the data across multiple brands, the Dealer.com website can provide a notably more relevant and personalized experience for the shopper. Responding to consumer demand, these websites are evolving into highly-detailed comparison spaces, delivering a digital storefront that is a true extension of the full-service showroom experience. Websites are designed to meet consumer expectations for personalization, speed, search, inventory comparison, mobile capabilities, merchandising efficiency and ADA accessibility.
- DIGITAL MARKETING: Dealer.com Experience Optimization
Dealer.com’s Experience Optimization technology harnesses the power of Cox Automotive data to connect shoppers with inventory recommendations as well as vehicle and fixed operations specials most relevant to them in real-time. With the ability to understand the buying signals of 75% of automotive consumers, Cox Automotive connects those data points to build consumer profiles of more than 125 million households. This avenue provides a more holistic view of the buying cycle—and allows Dealer.com to serve website content relevant to both inventory and service customers—versus simply responding to prior search behaviors. Personalized inventory recommendations drive 2.5X more VDP views and 12% more leads
