Mick McClure Honda used to send recall letters by regular mail. For each recall, they sent a letter and waited for the customers to contact them, so it was a long process.
Mick McClure Honda was using a texting solution, but they were not satisfied with it. They were looking for a software solution integrated with AutoMate to send automated messages and campaigns. They were also looking for a solution that would handle subscription cancellations automatically, as they had to handle them manually before.
Mick McClure Honda had a hard time doing follow-ups. While they have been able to raise their follow-ups from 40% to 50% in a short period of time, the software they were using didn’t allow them to send automated messages. Casey Anderson, Service Manager at Mick McClure Honda, says that “with the previous software, it took forever. It was not automated.” The process was very time consuming with low efficiency.
Before it was taking so much time. With Kimoby from the get-go, it has been awesome.
CSI follow-ups go automatically every day. It eliminates a lot of work for me. I love it! it is awesome.
CSI follow-ups are the biggest improvement of all. Before we were at 40%. I got it to 50% using our previous solution. With Kimoby we made it to 90%.
Kimoby helps Mick McClure Honda automate some of their daily manual operations such as sending appointment reminders, follow-up surveys or targeted campaigns for recalls or special promotions. Casey Anderson states that “it eliminates a lot of work for me. I love it! it is awesome! I love that it does everything for me now.”
When it comes to subscription cancellations, Casey says that customers “used to contact us and we had to manually opt them out. Now it is up to the customer to opt out, which I love.”1
By using the appointment reminder feature, Mick McClure Honda’s service team spends less time trying to reach out to their customers. “I love it, and our customers seem to like it a lot,” says Casey Anderson.
Mick McClure Honda uses the targeted campaign feature to manage its recalls. Casey says “if a recall comes now we upload the Excel file in Kimoby and we send the campaign. Julie (Customer Success Manager) helps me a lot! She is fantastic! When we sent the recall campaign we got instantaneous success on it.”
Mick McClure Honda has raised its surveys with Honda USA since using Kimoby. “That is the biggest improvement of all since we’ve been using Kimoby,” declares Casey. He adds that “last month our CSI was 89,3% follow-ups. With our previous solution, it took forever. It was not automated. With you guys, it goes automatically at 10 a.m. every day.”
Mick McClure Honda’s DMS is AutoMate. Kimoby seamlessly integrates with the AutoMate management system to enable Mick McClure Honda to send automated appointment reminders, work progress updates and service follow-ups.
