Urban Science Launches Daily CPO Lead-Defection Alerts

Urban Science Launches Daily CPO Lead-Defection Alerts

The QuickSights dashboard provides valuable insights regarding critical lead-defection trends, including models and segments associated with sales lost to other stores.

Urban Science announced in a press release significant enhancements to its SalesAlert solution, introducing an industry-first feature that delivers certified pre-owned (CPO) lead-defection alerts to franchise car dealers in the U.S., empowering them to identify sales lost to CPO vehicle purchases at same- and competitive-brand stores on a daily basis.

Adding CPO alerts expands SalesAlert’s defection-notification capabilities by addressing a critical dealer blind spot in lead pursuit, and by empowering sellers to more effectively focus their time and marketing budgets on leads that are still in market, according to the company.

“Simply put, adding CPO lead-defection alerts to SalesAlert’s best-in-class capabilities empowers dealers to make decisions rooted in certainty, not speculation, regarding new and used leads to ensure their time and resources are dedicated to opportunities still available to them,” said Rick Jones, vice president, adtech and dealer direct, Urban Science. “Even better, through our latest enhancements, SalesAlert creates richer opportunities to identify — and reverse — defection trends that may not have been identified otherwise. This solution is a critical element of top dealerships’ technology arsenals and our latest upgrades will ensure it remains as such in the short and long terms.”

Additional SalesAlert Enhancements
Beyond daily CPO defection alerts, Urban Science’s SalesAlert enhancements deliver several new features developed to guide the company’s dealer clients to business certainty in even the most ambiguous market conditions:

  1. QuickSights dashboard: provides valuable insights regarding critical lead-defection trends, including information about zip codes, salespeople, models and segments associated with sales lost to other stores.
  2. Defection DNA: offers in-depth insights regarding potential reasons behind lead defections with a single click. This granularity empowers more specific and relevant training.
  3. Dealer group view: allows leaders to easily analyze defections within dealer groups; defections can be compared against competitors and other stores within a group, and to group-level performance.

SalesAlert is available to all U.S.-based franchise dealerships.
