Ranked No. 1 in Dealer Satisfaction in Chat Products Category for Fourth Straight Year
Contact At Once!, leading provider of automotive chat, has received the “Highest Rated” Chat Products Award in the fifth annual DrivingSales Dealer Satisfaction Awards, presented at a special event today in conjunction with the 2014 National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Convention and Expo. Contact At Once! received the highest dealer satisfaction ranking in the Chat Products category, as determined by the thousands of auto dealers who are part of the DrivingSales.com community.
“This is the fourth consecutive year we’ve been honored by our customers with this prestigious industry award, and we sincerely thank all of them—it’s much more than a trophy to us,” says John Hanger, Contact At Once! chief executive officer. “We review ratings and comments carefully and are committed to continually using customer feedback from the DrivingSales community to improve our product and our users’ experience.”
Contact At Once! provides the industry’s leading integrated chat and text platform for automotive dealers, OEMs, third-party sites and technology partners. The company pioneered the use of chat and text in online advertising and oversees a managed network that facilitates millions of such digital conversations each year among online car shoppers, dealers and manufacturers. A recent automotive chat study showed that live chat users are much more engaged automotive shoppers who perform three times as many inventory searches, are three times more likely to request store-specific information and view vehicle detail pages at twice the rate.
“We congratulate Contact At Once! on receiving the ‘Highest Rated’ Chat Products Award, an accolade we consider to be one of our industry’s most important because it comes directly from dealers,” said DrivingSales CEO and Founder Jared Hamilton. “In our fifth year of presenting these awards, we feel especially proud that DrivingSales Vendor Ratings continues to help dealers make smart and informed decisions through thousands of peer reviews that lead them to outstanding service providers such as Contact At Once! live chat. We congratulate Contact At Once! on being recognized as one of the best-of-the-best by the people to whom their services count the most: the dealer community.”
