Dealers using the ContactAtOnce! chat service now have the option of answering chat leads using their mobile phones.

ATLANTA, Ga - April 7, 2010 -- Contact At Once! LLC, provider of the most widely deployed automotive chat tools that move online car shoppers into live conversations with dealers, today announced the immediate availability of mobile phone chat for auto dealers using the ContactAtOnce! chat service. Mobile phone chat for auto dealers makes it possible for users to answer chat leads from their "smart phone" mobile devices, which helps them to convert more prospects into sales.

“Dealer salespeople are active, typically up-and-down from their desks all day, and sometimes miss opportunities to engage prospective customers,” said Marc Hayes, co-founder and EVP at Contact At Once!. “With our mobile chat tool they won’t miss opportunities to sell more cars.”

The ContactAtOnce! mobile chat tool can be used to answer chat leads from any website. For example, dealers advertising on Cars.com, CarsDirect.com, CarSoup.com, or any of the 40+ automotive sites connected to the ContactAtOnce! network, can answer chat leads from all of these websites, as well as their dealership’s own website, using the same ContactAtOnce! mobile chat tool.

The mobile chat tool, called “MDE”, or mobile desktop extension feature, is available to ContactAtOnce! Dealer Edition users at no additional cost and can be easily activated via the self-service customer portal. It is supported on a wide range of mobile devices including iPhone, Blackberry, Android, Windows Mobile, and Palm devices.
