Fewer customers want phone calls. They want texts.

Texts take a lot less time than repeated calls, phone conversations and voice mails. According to J.D. Power’s Customer Service Index, fewer customers want phone calls. They want texts. In fact, 27% of customers with mass market brand vehicles, 42% of premium brand customers and 41% of younger customers want to communicate by text.

Texting doesn’t just make communication better – it builds retention.

In the J.D. Power study, only half of the customers contacted by phone said they would return – but for those who got texts, that rate jumped to two-thirds.
