Leading Consumer Data and Experience Platform identifies new SaaS features leveraging data and AI to improve dealer sales and service performance
Las Vegas, NV – (Feb. 2, 2024) DAS Technology, automotive’s leading consumer engagement technology company with the industry’s first next-level Consumer Data and Experience Platform (CDXP), unveiled its new software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings, including real-time lead quoting, prospect nurturing, service messaging, SMS enhancements, and inventory merchandising partnerships and capabilities. The results are being revealed at the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) annual convention in Las Vegas.
Within the lead and sales communication module of the CDXP, DAS Technology has introduced new capabilities to improve the conversion rate of sales performance through AI-enabled lead response and prospect nurturing communications with a multi-communication channel offering, including SMS-enhanced capabilities. The newly introduced messaging technology is already proving to drive higher sales results and service RO profitability among pilot dealers leveraging the solutions. The enhanced features include advanced identity resolution between a dealer’s CRM and DMS systems, improved audience building and segmentation, and patented AI-enabled messaging presenting alternative vehicles to consumers throughout their vehicle research and shopping journey. It also includes high-impact service, equity mining, and follow-up communications leveraging a consumer’s vehicle equity position and dealership data.
“We’ve been using DAS Technology’s lead response technology for several years. With the new capabilities introduced within the platform, we are more precise than ever in the sales and service messaging we deliver, driving higher ROI across our dealer group,” said Chip Diggs, director of internet sales and marketing for Seelye Auto Group in Michigan.
According to DAS Technology’s 10th annual Automotive Customer Experience Trends Study, which surveyed over 7,000 recent consumers who bought or serviced a vehicle, only 29% reported that the dealership responded to their initial inquiry with information that included options for similar vehicles.
The power of DAS Technology’s CDXP enables dealers to provide consumers with real-time sales and service information through their preferred communication channels. Dealers gain the upper hand and a higher return on investment in their consumer engagement. The patented technology enables dealerships to present immediate quotes for all leads with alternative vehicles. Dealers and consumers benefit through an improved vehicle shopping experience.

DAS Technology’s new inventory merchandising technology, advanced audience building, and consumer targeting solutions drive a higher digital marketing return on investment through the expanded DAS partner network. Leveraging proprietary technology, DAS enables dealers to deliver a high-impact and interactive shopping experience, focusing on connecting and engaging consumers with the right vehicles on the dealership’s website and vehicle details pages.
