ATLANTA, Sept. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Contact At Once!, a LivePerson company (NASDAQ: LPSN), and CARPROOF, a unit of IHS Markit announced today that CARPROOF vehicle history reports are now integrated into the Contact At Once! Connect platform. The partnership will help enhance the consumer experience by allowing agents to share CARPROOF information with consumers within the chat or text conversation. CARPROOF is Canada's most trusted source of automotive data, offering vehicle history and valuation information to consumers, dealers and industry insiders.
Contact At Once! allows consumers to message with sales or service professionals from a wide variety of media, including online advertising, social sites and dealership or OEM websites. Agents can share content within the chat or text conversation window from partner applications such as CARPROOF and CARFAX to help consumers enjoy a more informative and satisfying shopping experience.
"Shoppers want to have all the information about a vehicle in hand as they're considering options," says Denise Chudy, Contact At Once! General Manager. "Being able to chat or text and get a CARPROOF report while the messaging conversation is happening puts valuable information at the consumer's fingertips and can significantly improve the on-site experience."
Shawn Vording, CARPROOF's vice-president of automotive sales, says making the car buying experience more pleasant and less stressful is a mission for the company. "Our goal is to help Canadian shoppers make the most informed decisions about the used vehicles they're interested in so they feel empowered when they are ready to purchase," says Vording. "Contact At Once! gives our customers the option to have a live conversation with someone who can help them decipher used car data and reduce the guesswork around buying a car."
