Communicate in the way your customers prefer more efficiently than ever with the ability to include attachments when texting customers from a phone number of your choice. These new features are now available to DirectText dealers as we migrate to our new third-party vendor. Our team will be contacting you to get you set up with our new vendor so you can increase profitability and provide a better customer experience. Read on to learn more about these exciting enhancements.

Gain Customer Trust – And Business – With Images

Leverage high open rates and response times using the fastest and most efficient way to reach your customers: text messaging. With this dynamic asset to your dealership, your team can now spend less time tethered to their desks and more time building trust with the customer. Provide service updates, receive quick approvals for recommended repairs with photos to validate, and promptly respond to customer concerns, all from the team member’s smartphone.

Send as many as 10 images and 1,600 characters in the same message, as long as the entire message is under 5MB. Supported formats include:

  • GIF
  • JPEG
  • PNG
  • BMP

Choose Your Phone Number

Text messages sent to your customers will now come from a phone number of your choosing. You will be able to select from a vendor-provided list of available numbers – keep it local with the option to choose your dealership’s area code.

Maintain Clear Communication

Eliminate lost time spent playing phone tag with customers and empower your team with a clear line of communication. Whether they’re logged into their computer or using Mobile XRM on their phone, your team will be able to improve productivity and the customer experience as the customer’s replies are routed directly to the team member assigned to them. All text messages between the customer and your staff are automatically saved to the customer’s record in XRM for maintaining consistency and easy review later.
