Lead-Management Tools Formerly Exclusive to General Motors' Dealers Now Available to Others

DETROIT --(Business Wire)--

The highest-priority topic at this coming weekend's National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) conference in Orlando, Fla., undoubtedly will be the same as it is every year: "How do we sell more cars and trucks and attract more business for our service departments "

One company, SCI Marketview, is in the business of helping dealers increase their business. SCI provides "clean, reliable and actionable information" to sales and service personnel and has been doing so for the past six years with more than 50 percent of General Motors' dealers. SCI announced today that its sales-and-service lead management tools only accessible to date by General Motors' (News - Alert) dealers are now available to all other car companies as well.

SCI's three primary tools are: SCI RsponseDRIVER™, focused on helping dealers develop and prioritize sales strategy; SCI LaneDRIVER™, which helps organize data needed by dealers to most effectively manage their service departments; and, SCI CampaignDRIVER™, which helps dealers communicate with their customers via integrated, email, SMS texting, direct mail and voice messages.

SCI 24/7™, the company's recently launched mobile app included in the base program, provides easy, quick access to data on SCI ResponseDRIVER™ and SCI LaneDRIVER™ reducing response times to industry best. According to Alan Bird, SCI Marketview president and CEO, the SCI 24/7™ app was first made available in mid December and is being used by already more than 1,500 dealers.

Bird said, "Our tools have been tremendously popular and seen as great value for dealers with high ROI, and we look forward to the positive buzz at the NADA in Orlando including the SCI 24/7™ mobile app, since it has been so well received the past few weeks. It is all very exciting."

SCI's corporate headquarters is based in Markham, Ontario, and it has a major office in downtown Detroit. More information can be found at www.scimarketview.com, which was recently relaunched with new branding as well.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
