GoMoto, a developer of progressive technologies for automotive service lanes that modernizes the dealership experience and drives customer engagement, proudly announces their Virtual Service Advisor Platform has been integrated with VenueVision Integrated Dealerships Solutions, the leading automotive communications platform in Canada.

GoMoto’s Virtual Service Advisor is kiosk technology for the service lane that provides streamlined, self-led customer check in and check-out. GoMoto kiosks significantly reduce the customer’s check-in and check-out time while providing a consistent experience that improves customer satisfaction and revenue. GoMoto’s turn-key, cloud-based hardware and software solutions can be dynamically tailored to any dealership process or operation.

Integrating VenueVision with GoMoto dramatically increases customer convenience and improves communications between the dealership and its service customers. Customers will be able to check in faster, authorize additional repairs faster, receive real-time status updates and checkout faster by viewing and paying their invoices ahead of arrival with Mobile Cashier. Additionally, during the repair VenueVision’s fully integrated Shuttle Tracker and Loaner software provides more efficient scheduling and dispatching, reducing frustrations for all.

“When you improve efficiencies and reduce frustrations for the customer, you give them valuable time back in their busy day and in return they reward you with greater retention and better CSI scores. A win for everyone.” - Dave Hooper, President, VenueVision.

“Working with VenueVision, the market leader in Canada, was an easy decision.”

Fixed Ops Article Press Release

An important read for dealers who want the ultimate competitive edge.

In a recent article in Fixed Ops magazine, author Chris Justice outlines how texting will redefine car dealerships’ customer experiences. Justice goes on to describe the benefits that integrating this technology will provide to both the dealership and the customer.

It’s clearly shown in the data how more and more customers are preferring communication and updates by text over more traditional phone calls and emails. Combine this texting technology with options for mobile payments, and you are now providing cutting edge technologies and conveniences. And you can be sure that your tech savvy customers will certainly appreciate the service!  

“Dealerships that have switched to text and mobile pay solutions are experiencing faster Service approvals and faster RO closes. Money enters the dealership accounts faster, thus making it easier to focus on the bottom line throughout operations.” 

VenueVision’s autoTEXT and Mobile Cashier solutions allow you to integrate these technologies into your dealership’s processes, and ultimately improve your customer’s experiences. Improving your customer’s experiences is the only way to improve your customer service ratings, which in turn equals higher customer retention rates.  Find out more about our autoTEXT and Mobile Cashier solutions and request a demo.
