Project Summary

Cars guide approached Cloudwave due to the attribution challenges they were facing with there existing systems and the desire to implement a contact centre solution that provided flexibility for growth and provided the technical ability to solve the marketing lead attribution challenges they faced.


The marketing and sales leads being generated by the cars guide marketing campaigns were not being attributed accurately back to the source given agents had no method to make the attribution nor did the current system provide and automation, hence they were unable to prove their value into their Australia wide dealer network.


Having to integrate with each dealers technology and telco set up across Australia meant Cloudwave needed to build and deploy a contact centre solution that was a platform agnostic to telecommunications provider and hardware it would be run on plus an innovative solution and reporting capability. 

Cars Guide Challenges

CarsGuide approached Cloudwave with a unique set of challenges that required our solution architects to design an construct a market leading cloud contact centre.

Cars Guide had three major challenges and objectives of the project and supplier partnership, these can be summarised as;


Needed a partner with the engineering and development skill set to come up with an innovative solution.


The ability to attribute the origin of calls when they reached the car dealer network (proving the value of the Carsguide business).


Wanted a credible partner that worked with the best of breed technology companies in the customer experience market.


Helping Cars Guide deliver visibility on their ROI to their dealer network through cutting edge cloud contact centre technology
