Davenport, IA (PRWeb) June 16, 2014 – Dealer Marketing Services, Inc., the makers of ProMax Unlimited today announced their approval by Kia Motors America (KMA) as a Certified Lead Management Provider. This certification enables Kia dealers to manage their inbound leads through ProMax’s award-winning Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Internet Lead Management (ILM) modules.
“We’re honored to be an inaugural member of Kia’s certified lead integration program” said ProMax Unlimited CEO John Palmer. “We always strive to give our dealers the tools they need to succeed and this integration will enhance their efficiency and make it easier to convert leads into automobile sales.”
OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) leads are sent directly into a dealership’s ProMax system allowing them to work all their incoming internet leads, including those from the manufacturer. OEMs track response times, knowing there is a direct correlation between quick response times and high conversion ratios. Responding to leads in ProMax ‘stops the clock’ with the manufacturer.
“Our ILM module has been a big focus” said ProMax Unlimited CTO, Darian Miller. “We’ve added so many features to it recently that our ILM is now without a doubt one of the best on the market.” Over the past year, ProMax has made a multitude of improvements to its Internet Lead Management module, including new lead delivery options, activity monitoring with alerts, and salesperson reassignment notifications, giving dealers greatly expanded ability to receive and respond to leads whether at a desktop on the lot or at home from their smartphone.
“This certification is very exciting for us” said Shane Born, COO of ProMax Unlimited. “Providing innovative solutions to minimize lead response time is our goal, and through extensive development and testing we have created software which satisfies Kia’s high standards of quality”.
ProMax is a certified lead management tool for most OEMs including Chrysler/Fiat, Ford, GM, Honda/Acura, Hyundai, Nissan/Infiniti, Toyota/Lexus, Mazda, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Volvo, Volkswagen, and now Kia.
