Motor City Chrysler’s service staff experiences high levels of demands. In fact, as many as 70% of incoming calls are transferred to this department. If service managers are already busy taking care of customers and can’t be reached, it can lead to customers feeling frustrated. To address this issue and improve the overall customer experience, the dealership was looking to empower its service staff with a communication tool that would be less time-consuming, all while enabling the team to reach more customers.
In order to provide the best possible customer service, Motor City Chrysler needed more data and feedback on how customers felt about their service experience. The dealership required a tool that would both increase the number of post-appointment service reviews and instantly notify the team regarding any negative feedback in order to address issues in a timely manner.
Besides helping the service staff, the Marketing Manager of Motor City Chrysler was also looking for a way to engage with customers to share the dealership’s service promotions. The dealership uses flyers and other marketing content for sales promotions, but was lacking an effective channel and tool for the service department.
I love Kimoby. It helps promote our specials to our customers other than digital advertising on Facebook.
A phone message can go unanswered or be deleted, but in Kimoby, text messages are assigned to managers so they can step in. There is always a record of the conversation.
Motor City Chrysler uses Kimoby’s targeted campaigns feature to reach its customers regarding recalls. Since they have a lot of recalls to deal with, this feature enables them to inform a greater number of customers simultaneously with less effort and time.
Automated text messages are sent to request feedback after service appointments. Not only do these text messages generate more satisfaction follow-ups but they also help the dealership act on reviews as soon as they are received. Negative reviews are assigned to service managers so they can act promptly on issues by contacting customers and resolving the problems. For great reviews, a link is sent to ask customers if they can publicly share Google reviews. This helps build and manage the dealership’s online reputation.
Kimoby provides a means for service managers to stay in contact with customers. Because sending a text message is much faster than making phone calls, service managers can efficiently contact more customers.
With Kimoby’s features for automated appointment reminders and targeted campaigns for recalls, the service coordinator spends much less time on the phone and therefore has more time to spend on other tasks that offer more value. On average, the time spent on the phone has been cut by 2-3 hours per day.
