Boca Raton, FL (February 22, 2021) — Gubagoo – the leading provider of digital retailing and messaging solutions for automotive dealerships – today announced that Virtual Retailing is now a part of the Stellantis Digital program.
As of today, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram dealerships can introduce Gubagoo’s award-winning platform to their dealership and have the cost partially covered by PAP and VSD funding.
Built on a conversational commerce platform, Gubagoo’s Virtual Retailing has been a market leader since its introduction in 2019.
Virtual Retailing allows customers to purchase a vehicle online, and arrange delivery to their door. The solution provides a true, end-to-end car-buying experience which features live assistance throughout the process.
The solution is the most robust automotive digital retailing solution available on the market today, and includes real-time, data-driven trade-in values, VIN-specific F&I products personalized to the driver, an automotive loan marketplace with hundreds of lenders, online contracting and eSignature.
“Both Stellantis and Gubagoo share a commitment to provide customers with a great experience,” said Brad Title, CEO of Gubagoo. “Virtual Retailing helps Stellantis dealers provide what customers are looking for – fun and frictionless online and in-store shopping.”
Gubagoo’s solutions are already heavily used by the Stellantis dealer community, with nearly 800 Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram dealers nationwide using Gubagoo’s conversational commerce platform.
“It was important to our organization to choose the most powerful digital retailing solution – and we chose Gubagoo’s Virtual Retailing,” shared Nate Sato, Director of Digital Marketing at Ken Garff Automotive Group.
“Our results from Virtual Retailing have been very strong – in fact, the average gross from Virtual Retailing leads is one of our highest, 12% higher than the average. There’s no question – our customers love the experience, and our team is thrilled.”
“No one else has the magic that Gubagoo has,” said Alex Katzenstein, Internet Sales Manager at Brooklyn Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram. “When we switched from another popular digital retailing tool, our engagements went up by 50%, and our opportunities doubled. There’s nothing like it. Our whole team is absolutely sold. Gubagoo’s Virtual Retailing is a huge, huge win for us.”
Gubagoo’s Virtual Retailing has swept the industry’s awards in the opening months of 2021, winning the DrivingSales Award for the top rated/reviewed digital retailing product by dealers, the AWA Digital Retailing Award, and the Vanguard Award for innovation in the automotive industry.
