ATLANTA, April 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Contact At Once!, a LivePerson Company (Nasdaq: LPSN), has been named the Platinum Partner with the CDK Global Partner Program's Digital Partners integration offering.
"Joining CDK's Partner Program is a perfect fit for one of our top goals: making it simple for dealers to add the communication conveniences today's shoppers prefer," says Skip Dowd, Contact At Once! Automotive Vice President. "Another goal is helping dealers effectively engage more buyers and service customers. That's why, with Contact At Once!, engagement doesn't have to stop at the website. Dealers can use our platform to manage chats and texts originating from their online ads and Facebook Messenger, as well!"
With the CDK Partner Program, dealerships with CDK websites can add the full power of Contact At Once!'s industry-leading messaging platform—with integrated reporting and analytics—in just a few clicks. They can select from a variety of Contact At Once! chat and text messaging packages, including those which integrate proactive conversation management. This enables dealers to more easily engage shoppers even during busy moments and non-traditional business hours.
Thanks to the two companies' deep integration, dealerships can also have easy access to CDK behavioral shopper data to better guide the sales conversation as they're chatting with shoppers.
Messaging is an increasingly important part of a mobile strategy. Contact At Once! data show that interactive mobile messaging between consumers and businesses over its network (which manages millions of interactions each year) has increased over 100 percent in the last year alone. "When we give consumers the option to message with retailers, they take advantage of it," says Dowd.
