OK Tire Spruce Grove's Challenge

Implementing a safe, efficient payment process

After encountering fraud issues in 2015 with over-the-phone credit card payments, OK Tire Spruce Grove tried emailing payment forms for customers to print out and fill in by hand. This method was complicated and time-consuming for both customers and staff.

Strengthening their online presence

OK Tire Spruce Grove customers did not have the reflex to leave a Google review without a prompt. Therefore, the tire and service shop struggled to promote their excellent customer service and relied on word of mouth to generate more business.

Communicating with customers

The tire and service shop had issues reaching customers by phone. Most calls went unanswered, and customers would call back, not knowing who called them. Overall, the communication process was strained.

"Having fantastic online reviews has been a gamechanger for us. Now nine out of ten customers say they chose us because we have great Google reviews."
