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."
