Dealer HD Develops New Behavioral Chat Product Powered by Contact At Once!

 

Product Monitors Shopper Activity and Serves Proactive Chat Greeting Relevant to the Automotive Shopper’s Activities. 

 

ALPHARETTA, GA. February 3, 2012 – Contact At Once!, the dealer chat software leader, and Dealer HD, an Automotive Website and Solutions Provider, today announced the immediate availability of a unique chat product that monitors the activities of the online shopper, and serves up highly targeted chat greetings.  The new Dealer HD offering, Behavioral Chat, adds a layer of business intelligence logic to Contact At Once! Automotive Chat.  This results in a highly relevant and proactive chat greeting which matches the shopper’s interest.

“We have partnered with Contact At Once! for many years and for a number of reasons. They provide the best overall chat customer service with the largest reach: Being able to be used on PC's, Macs, mobile phones, iPads and numerous other portable devices. On the partner side, they have fantastic support and a well documented API,” Bruce Etzcorn, Dealer HD Director of Product Development said.  “We built behavioral chat to increase conversations by delivering tailored messages directly to visitors using their shopping behavior.”

“Behavioral chat provides a way to serve chat greetings that truly reflect what the customer is looking for. As an example, if a shopper is looking at Ford F150s, a chat greeting could drop in that says ‘Our F150 Expert is here to Answer Your Questions.’ Our team has built and applied a layer of Dealer HD business intelligence logic which calls a request into the Contact At Once! system to deliver chat greetings which are attuned to shoppers' specific desires,” Etzcorn concluded.

“It is gratifying to know that our partners are able to apply new and creative ideas that add value and functionality to our dealer chat products,” said Contact At Once! Founder and Executive Vice President, Marc Hayes.   “By applying business intelligence to Contact At Once! chat, Dealer HD has added real innovation, resulting in a unique and compelling chat solution that will greatly benefit our mutual customers.”
