Brice Englert, general manager of @utoRevenue, says of the upgrade: “With the all-new, re-designed consumer interface, the expected appointment completion times will improve drastically. This will dramatically increase conversion rates, thereby attracting more repeat users and loyal customers for our dealerships.”
The @utoScheduler program has a proven track record. For one Honda store it increased appointments scheduled online from 10 to 27 percent in two years. A Toyota store on the program for only two months saw its percentage of appointments increase by 24 percent.
@utoScheduler is the only scheduling system in the industry that is fully-integrated through multiple channels. Not only does it reside as a core feature of dealers’ Web sites, but it is also present through every communication, whether through e-mail, voice, or direct mail, to drive traffic to the “Schedule Appointment” page of the dealer’s Web site. This constant branding results in faster adoption by consumers of the online appointment scheduling system and adds critical interactivity to their Web site.
Online appointment scheduling is being rapidly adopted by consumers, and dealers are responding to this demand. @utoRevenue’s long heritage in providing this service to clients has shown that, over time, the percentage of total appointments scheduled online grows steadily. This online scheduling behavior results in an increased pool of loyal customers for dealer service departments.
