DealerSocket's New Tool, SocketTalk, Allows Dealers to IM Users and Text Customers

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire -- Leading auto dealer CRM DealerSocket (DealerSocket.com) continues to make the newest and best technology available to auto dealers. DealerSocket announced today the general release of SocketTalk, a new tool that allows users to instant message (IM) from within the CRM to internal DealerSocket users. SocketTalk is also a true texting tool that allows instant two-way communication between the dealership and a customers' mobile device.

"We decided to develop a texting and IM tool to provide dealers with an easier, more effective way to communicate with their customers," said Brad Perry, DealerSocket Co-Founder and CTO. "The dealers piloting this new technology with us say the product is an amazing and valuable collaboration tool."

It is an efficient channel to communicate with customers, and is opt-in and opt-out compliant to protect dealerships and their customers. Users can send texts based on sales, services and quality assurance events. SocketTalk Instant Message, the IM arm of the tool, allows users to IM a single person, team, dealership, or multiple dealerships. DealerSocket is excited about the efficiency this new communication channel provides dealers to keep in contact with customers and employees.
