Daytona Beach, FL – WEBWIRE

Driver Connect, DMEautomotive’s (DMEa) leading dealer-branded, consumer-facing mobile app, is the first mobile app provider to embed live chat from Contact At Once!. Contact At Once! is the auto industry’s leading provider of chat services, with over 13,000 dealers, classified sites and OEMs as customers. In addition, DMEa has joined the Contact At Once! 360 Partner Program. As a result of the partnership, Contact at Once! is now integrated directly into Driver Connect, so consumers can instantly connect with a dealer representative straight from the palm of their hand, 24/7.

“Driver Connect has one over-riding goal and that is to enhance the dealer/customer relationship to increase retention, loyalty and service business. As mobile digital continues to explode, today’s customers are increasingly demanding a ‘right now’ relationship – even when they are on the go. Live chat is a natural evolution for Driver Connect and brings our dealer customers even closer to their service customers – on that most valuable of all communications real estate, the smart phone,” said Mike Walther, president and CEO of DMEautomotive. “As a leader and pioneer of dealership chat – and one of the highest quality providers in the industry - Contact At Once! is a logical partner to help DMEa increase engagement between dealers and their service customers.”

Integration of Contact at Once! chat into Driver Connect means that dealer representatives will now be able to directly answer customer questions through the app. Consumers can initiate chats with dealership representatives to get quick answers to questions while the question is still relevant and the customer’s interest in vehicle/service is high – all quickly, easily and in real time.

“A few years ago, mobile was seen as revolutionary for dealerships – now mobile apps are a standard and required channel of communication,” said John Hanger, CEO of Contact At Once!. “Driver Connect is well ahead of that curve and right in the sweet spot of customer expectations -- which include being able to reach a dealership when they need to, for the info they want, in real time and in their preferred channel. We are pleased to partner with Driver Connect as the first in the industry to provide this capability to dealerships and their customers.”

This partnership marks the third such agreement for DMEa to be announced in the last month , as leading service providers in the industry choose Driver Connect to help their dealership customers meet the mobile revolution and increase loyalty and retention.
