How Customer-Centric is Your Dealership? Take the Test!

We are well into December. It's time to take stock of your year and your accomplishments. It’s definitely time to have fun and to be mindful of what is ahead. As we turn the corner into a new year, 2015, today’s Women’s Wednesday you are invited to take a short, interactive quiz to evaluate where there is room to expand your dealership’s customer excellence. And in doing so, your competitive edge.

The idea to establish a quick test came from a family of dealerships with extraordinarily high CSI and WSI (Women Satisfaction Index) scores. They asked Women-Drivers.com to establish a baseline to gauge how they compared to other dealerships in order to further increase customer loyalty and engagement for their business. We interviewed a number of other forward-thinking dealers in the following areas: Sales, Service, BDC, Brand Reputation, Concierge Services, Social Media, etc.

In this highly competitive industry, dealers are constantly looking for new ways to expand their level of customer service and retention.

These are not novel ideas, yet it is surprising how many dealerships have yet to embrace fairly effortless changes such as these. The quiz feedback also includes innovative initiatives in each of the four categories to stretch your customer service and standards to meet the changing landscape of the customer. What's your score?
