No car was ever sold or serviced without a conversation — and today’s shoppers and owners prefer messaging over all other forms of communication. LivePerson Automotive gives dealers powerful messaging tools to win more customers, deliver higher quality experiences, and increase customer loyalty.
Car shoppers prefer to research and buy online, but filling out forms and finding specific info can be difficult. 74% of online buyers report they would be more likely to complete forms if they had live chat support with vehicle specs or financial details. Give consumers quick fingertip access to your team to guide them through the buying process with the best live chat and messaging solution in the industry.
Trade-in valuation is critical to the car shopping journey. Our system connects directly with Kelley Blue Book data to pull trusted trade-in values into live chat support and messaging conversations, enabling customers to get a more precise idea of their car’s value. This convenience improves their experience, removes barriers to purchasing and increases sales conversion rates.
LivePerson Automotive’s Connect! is the only car dealer messaging platform designed to connect dealerships and consumers across the entire journey — from shopping to buying and servicing to trade-in. With it, departments collaborate more efficiently to send reminders and repair updates, as well as strategize upsells and special promotions. Using rich features like secure forms, dealers can offer convenient CSI surveys and take online payments directly in messaging and live chat support conversations.
