The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2020-08-04T10:08:36Z That’ll be the phone, Reg 2020-08-04T10:08:36Z that-ll-be-the-phone-reg-1 PHONES ringing out, phone lines busy, transferred calls abandoned and active sales calls hitting the dreaded ‘dial this for service and that for sales’ is costing dealers tens of thousands of dollars a month in lost sales, according to James O’Neill, the CEO of WildJar, one of Australia’s leading call tracking and phone management systems. Speaking with GoAutoNews Premium, as part of our Dealer Talks podcast series with Gumtree Cars, Mr O’Neill said dealers spend vast sums of money driving buyers to their businesses but are still missing many of the phone calls they are generating with ‘hot’ buyers on the other end. The worst ‘sins’ are buyers met with engaged signals meaning there are not enough lines and phones ringing out suggesting there are not enough people manning phones. “Across the board, we find dealers are still missing 15 percent of phone calls and another 10 percent of calls are being abandoned during the call transfer process,” Mr O’Neill said. “There is a huge hole when a call is transferred from reception to a salesperson and that salesperson is not at their desk and the customer is on hold for one minute or two minutes and they hang up. That is 10 percent abandoned. “So in total that means 25 percent of calls into a business are being missed.” He said that WildJar calculates that missed calls  and abandoned calls cost a dealership $260 a time. “We looked at Deloitte’s $2,600 gross profit per car and we know 1 in 10 calls into a dealership results in a sale. Lets keep it really simple and we know that every call you miss is $260. “We know a metro dealer who received 2,100 phone calls in one month and missed 390 which is 18.4 per cent. So the monthly revenue impact was about $100,000 based on the Deloitte number.” Mr O’Neill said that, when a customer calls, dealers need to be ready to help them buy because they are ready to buy. “There are so many improvements and efficiencies dealers can do internally just on getting the call flow and call handling correct and by answering the call at the right time. “Dealers spend so much money at the front end to drive lead enquires and, when the customers pick up the phone and call, we know that callers convert at around a 15 percent higher rate than the online lead enquiry ‘form fills’. “A dealer salesperson might send a video out to a customer via SMS; they have done a video walkaround of the car, and that creates direct engagement with the customer. “But that connection is broken when the customer calls the main dealership landline and is greeted with the usual Press 1 for Service, 2 for parts, 3 for sales and the experience around that is not good. The dealership needs to know at that point that the customer has just watched a video and treat them as such. “How our business works is that we have unique phone numbers within advertising. So we know the customer is calling from a particular medium; in this case calling from a video they have just watched. “Rather than sending the customer to a phone queue, we send them to the sales person or we set up a hunt group where we set up a multi-call to call all your sales people at the one time so they know that this is a sales engagement. “When they pick up the phone we ‘whisper’ to the salesperson that this customer/lead is from your YouTube video ad or this is a lead from a video the dealer has sent out to them. So the salesperson knows how to respond to the phone call before they speak to that customer. “When dealers are getting these calls buyers are ready to purchase. They have done their research and, by not answering correctly, you interrupt their progress. “Dealers, on an aggregate level, are still quite poor at handling calls. ‘You know this customer is looking at your inventory page so send them to the right people at the right time and improve that customer process – and invest more in the people that are answering the calls because we found that even if they are just polite on a call it is improving conversion levels. “Customers like to interact. They do all their research online, go to classified sites, choose brands on local dealer websites, when they are ready to purchase, they are picking up the phone and calling. “When they do call, the customer is highly engaged.” Mr O’Neill said that WildJar’s experience across 600 dealerships of all brands and locations shows there is a remarkably small number of people who call more than one dealership. “We only see two percent  of cross calling – which is a customer calling two or more dealerships. James O’Neill “Two percent is very low. So if a customer is calling your dealership, they want that dealership. They do not want to go to the next dealership a few suburbs away. “That is why giving each customer a fantastic and memorable first impression over the phone is now more important than ever, as these consumers who are calling you are ready to buy,” he said. “So the data that we are seeing is that once they have chosen a brand and chosen a dealership location, they are willing to give that dealer the opportunity to speak to them. “Once they call you they are ready to talk to you, they are ready to purchase, they are as hot as a lead could be. So you need to treat them that way. “But first of all you need to answer the call.” To learn more about the WildJar visit WildJar.com or call 1300 317 533 About WildJar   WildJar helps businesses become wildly successful by providing cutting edge voice and SMS solutions.

ECAL on the rise, and joins HyperKu group of companies. 2020-08-04T04:53:16Z ecal-on-the-rise-supports-global-live-sport-and-events-industries-throughout-covid FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PRESS RELEASE AUGUST 2020 ECAL on the rise, and joins HyperKu group of companies.  HyperKu acquires ECAL and fuels global growth At a time that is proving difficult for most Australian businesses, ECAL’s global calendar communications and marketing platform is thriving, having been acquired by Singapore start-up HyperKu, and securing $1M in additional capital to fuel growth. ECAL’s calendar communications and marketing platform enables any event-based organisation to deliver rich, dynamic content, straight to their audience, via their personal digital calendar. With the onset of COVID, their clients were quick to develop new and interesting ways to keep fans engaged using ECAL’s adaptive technology. The National Basketball Association (NBA) and English Premier League (EPL) both launched highly successful eSports tournaments, whilst Formula E organised a 9-week ‘Race at Home Challenge’ simulator series, featuring professional drivers up against the best Sim racers and celebrities. Closer to home, the Australian Football League (AFL) and National Rugby League (NRL) season restarts have faced huge challenges, with constant interruptions and continual rescheduling due to the unpredictable nature of the COVID outbreak. Performing Arts organisations are also turning to ECAL for solutions, such as The Australian Ballet with the launch of their ‘Digital Season’. The importance of the ECAL platform in engaging and activating fans is what made them attractive to co- founders, Patrick Barrett and Remon Gazal at HyperKu. “The ECAL acquisition makes perfect sense for us at this time. Some of the biggest event brands in the world are turning to ECAL to manage customer communications through this period of great disruption”, said Remon Gazal, former APAC President at Brightstar. HyperKu’s capital partners for the ECAL acquisition include a Singapore-based Family Office who invest in high- growth technology platforms, some of which have already signed partnership agreements with ECAL. “We have entered a new era of digital engagement and entertainment, with a blending of exciting new digital events, and traditional live events. Uncertainty and change are the main constants, and the power of ECAL’s smart, dynamic communications for events is proving to be critically valuable - in sports, entertainment, media and beyond,”, says Patrick Barrett, who is also the CEO of ECAL. During this COVID period, ECAL has won new business in eSports, virtual conferencing, and streaming services. Payments are also a major focus, with the recent announcement of a partnership with payments orchestration company PayDock, and impending announcements with two other key strategic partners in the marketing and events space. “The new ownership structure for ECAL will provide the capacity for continued growth into new industries and territories, as well as a support network of people, portfolio business and capital to help make it all happen”, says Barrett. “This is an exciting time for us. Already, we have announced the appointment of sports media executive, Alex Peebles as Chief Revenue Officer, who will lead our Asia expansion and help us go deeper into media. We expect to share more exciting news in the coming weeks.” For further information, please visit https://ecal.com About ECAL: ECAL is world-leading calendar communications, marketing and data platform, used by 300+ major brands globally across sports, entertainment, media, ticketing and payments.

Author of 7 books, Hans Jakobi, 66, has gone from being suicidal and surviving multiple tragedies, including three serious bushfire threats to his home and an eight-year drought, to being a successful businessman and funding his own retirement at 55. Known as The Lifestyle Entrepreneur, he and his wife of 41 years, Colette, have travelled to more than 70 countries since then and now will hit the road on a Bounce Back To Freedom Tour. On the tour, he will interview and film Australians who have lost their jobs or businesses to find out what they are doing to recover from the crisis and what strategies they have worked out to prosper from the turmoil. “The way people have panicked in this crisis has had a deep impact on me and I feel compelled to spread a message of hope, opportunity and support to replace the narrative of fear,” Mr Jakobi said. He said the best and most secure way to prosper from this crisis was to start an online home-based business. “I want to inspire ordinary, everyday people, encourage them and give them hope to embrace this crisis as their opportunity to start their own online business and profit despite the crisis,” he said. “I’m sure there will be some people who will have benefited from the crisis because they’ve adapted to the opportunities created and will be loving it, while others will have a lot of stress and anxiety.” Mr Jakobi will hit the road with his latest book, Why You Need to Start Your Own Online Business Now! “My mantra is that you can build and run a business from anywhere in the world with just a laptop computer, a mobile phone and an internet connection,” he said. To walk his talk and also inspire his 3 children and 5 grandchildren, he and his wife will make the 12,000km return trip in a 2008 Sunland 24 foot caravan to Darwin and document his journey as he inspires locals, films their stories and builds a new online business from scratch. “People learn more from what they see than what you say so I want to inspire people. In the next 10 years, I will give it my best, keep traveling, support my children, mentor my grandchildren and others about business,” Mr Jakobi said. “I want to be around positive, aspirational people and then I will retire again.” For more details, visit www.BounceBacktoFreedom.com Breast Cancer goes from 0-150mph in under 9 seconds 2020-07-05T23:59:58Z breast-cancer-goes-from-0-150mph-in-under-9-seconds Breast Cancer goes from 0-150mph in under 9 seconds ‘Don’t Wait for the Green Light’ is Andy’s sometimes humorous but highly emotional new book about her fight to get back on the race track. Perth, Western Australia, July 2020: Andy Kahle turned her blog - written to keep her family up to date while she was undergoing cancer treatment - into her new book, “Don’t Wait for the Green Light”. Instead of being your standard Breast Cancer survival story, this book is a collection of emotional and often humorous situations that Andy found herself in while she put her motor racing on hold to fight a disease that affects 1 in 8 women. “Everyone needs something to inspire them to keep fighting, and mine was the knowledge that I would get back in my race car. ” While superstition says that back luck comes in 3’s, Andy didn’t allow this to sway her “need” to race down the quarter mile in Australia’s first compact car - the Holden Torana. First she blew up the transmission the day before she was supposed to get her racing licence, then her husband - Mick - slipped in the shower and impaled himself on the tap, that very same evening. And if you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop … just as the racing season was coming to a close, and hubby was on the mend, Andy was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of breast cancer, forcing her dream on hold. There is a saying in drag racing, that if you wait until you see the green light before you leave the start line, you will miss out. So is the case in real life. Sometimes it’s better to put your foot flat to the floor and accelerate to where you want to be. While Andy’s book “Don’t Wait for the Green Light” starts with the uncertainty of a life changing diagnosis, Andy takes this as an opportunity to look at everything with her trademark wry humour. Situations such as the mood lighting and 70s style attire while getting a mammogram, or the nervous foot jiggling, plastic chair wobbling of her husband while she read outdated magazines in the doctors waiting room, Andy has managed to maintain the gravity of her journey while still demonstrating the importance of enjoying every moment and focussing on her ultimate goal of racing again. Available in paperback or e-book, via Amazon, Andy has also provided the option to purchase a signed copy of “Don’t Wait for the Green Light” direct from her charity race car website - Therapy on Wheels. (www.TherapyonWheels.asn.au)   Despite being told she had a high risk of recurrence, at the age of 51 Andy Kahle has now been cancer free for over 10 years. Andy has also continued to race since the completion of her cancer treatment and now has a new race car on the way. This one has been custom built to allow Andy and her team to raise funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer by offering passenger rides down the drag strip … but that’s a whole other story.  Contact Details:  Andy KahlePhone: 0437 312 394LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/andykahle/ Email: andy@TherapyOnWheels.asn.auWeb: www.TherapyOnWheels.asn.au Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GruntMonkeysTherapyonWheels/Twitter: https://twitter.com/TOW_CancerRidesInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/therapyonwheels/YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPxu0ocrW1H2S_S3cqP8Jaw Cars Removal Sydney With Top Cash For Cars 2020-07-05T01:18:29Z cars-removal-sydney-with-top-cash-for-cars If you are thinking of selling your unwanted cars, then you have to keep some important points in mind. selling your car can be very easy and sometimes very messy.

Patients receive immediate feedback, are able to follow their own progress and engage in their own management. APA’s Vice President and Physiotherapy Research Foundation Chair, Jenny Aiken commented on the pilot “We are delighted to partner with the myscoreit platform to enable the APA to investigate the feasibility of digitally collecting PROMs in the private practice setting. myscoreit not only collects PROM data which can be used by the APA to gain insights into the effectiveness of physiotherapy intervention, it also guides the user to choose the right PROM to allow the practitioner to track patient progress and make informed clinical decisions.” Jenny added.  Unlike existing PROMs collection solutions, myscoreit has been designed and developed by sports physicians to focus solely on PROMs data collection. Not only does it assist practitioners with choosing the correct PROM for their patient, it also facilitates easy interpretation to help use clinical data with patients to inform treatment decisions. “Our aim was to design a platform that integrated seamlessly into existing clinical practice and was simple for both you and your patient to use.”myscoreit founder and Sport and Exercise Physician, Dr Louise Tulloh said. “The myscoreit platform has the ability to capture and compare data over time enabling you to track patient progress and treatment effectiveness from a dashboard in real time and bridge the gap between appointments. Collection of outcome measures can support remote monitoring, add value to telehealth consultations, and help to improve communication with referrers. This pilot will demonstrate the importance of value-based decision making and the role that technology can play in futureproofing the physiotherapy profession.” Expressions of interest for the pilot are now open, and through the support of the Physiotherapy Research Foundation, all physiotherapists have been given the opportunity to participate in this research.
