Boca Raton, FL [Jan 27, 2023] - Brian Pasch, author and industry leader in automotive marketing strategies, online dealer education, marketing analytics, and digital retailing is pleased to announce Konect.ai as a winner of the 2023 AWA Award in the Sales Process category.
The AWAs were created in 2008 to recognize the best vendors in automotive digital marketing, primarily focused on websites. Since then, the AWAs have become a benchmark in the automotive industry for recognizing innovative products, now in 20 categories: digital retailing, marketing automation, sales process, dealer websites, digital marketing, SEO and local search, inventory management and merchandising, HR & training, fixed operations, F&I, website merchandising, conversational commerce, video technology, business intelligence tools, reputation management, and our newest categories, automatic payment platforms, digital voice assistants, enterprise retailing, and CDP/MAP technologies.
This year’s lineup of AWA winners included a number of exciting new products designed to create operational efficiencies for auto dealers, strengthen their brand, and grow their bottom line. In addition to creating new tools, the vendor community fully embraced the challenges and opportunities created by low inventory and a tight labor market.
“I want to thank everyone who participated in the AWA review process this year,” said Pasch. “We watched demonstrations of an amazing group of innovative and progressive products, and we are proud to be associated with these companies and their staff who have invested so much of their time and resources to better serve the automotive dealer community.”
The 2023 AWAs is honored to recognize the efforts of many deserving companies who stand out in their areas of expertise and have proven to be thought leaders, disruptors, and innovators.
Pasch said, “this platform is getting great reviews from dealers because it’s using artificial intelligence and high-delivery text messages to follow up with leads. Konect.ai is using SMS technology to communicate with consumers, to engage them, [and] to start conversations with the leads that come into the dealer’s CRM.”
Go to awa.autos to watch video product reviews and demonstrations in all 20 categories, and hear how these products can solve pain points and make a positive impact on dealer operations.
