The new ELEAD1ONE Virtual Interactive Presenter (eVIP) will first appear in select service departments. The eVIP engages service customers with consistent interactive communication scripted to generate additional sales opportunities and increase service to sales conversion. The eVIP projects a spokesperson onto a shaped projection screen that is linked to the ELEAD1ONE best-in-class Perfect Prospect data mining technology through interactions with customers via a touch kiosk. The eVIP educates service customers on exchanging their current vehicle with the newest model. Through scripted interactions, eVIP qualifies sales opportunities, identifies vehicles in inventory, sends real-time alerts to the sales team and even schedules test drives. “The eVIP is a novel and non-confrontational way to interact with service customers,” stated Bill A. Hibbard, Business Development Manager of 3M. “The 3M™ Virtual Presenter, a dynamic merchandising solution, uses a proprietary means to shape digital content and project a life-like shaped image onto a screen. Dealerships are able to attract service customers with the benefits of trading up their existing model to a new vehicle.” “This combination of game-changing technology and low maintenance virtual staffing has already proven very effective in other retail spaces.
