Car recalls are serious and it can be a headache to get in touch with all the vehicle owners. Emails are rarely opened, and even if they are it is not immediate enough if there is a safety risk, and manually calling takes extensive manpower.

Trumpia’s Smart Targeting for auto dealerships goes above and beyond the competition because it lets you specifically target your alerts depending on the customer’s vehicle, so you won't be sending SMS alerts to someone who has a different model or who has already had a problem fixed, saving you time and preventing any confusion your customers may have.

Send Service Appointment Reminders

Service and repair visits are a vital part of any auto dealerships’ revenue, so it’s important that customers show up to their appointments. With SMS, send text reminders when customers are due for their next service appointment, or entice them with things like coupons for oil changes. On top of setting up appointment reminders, with Trumpia’s powerful automation tool, auto dealerships can send service reminders to ensure that customers’ vehicles are running smoothly.

If customers have any questions relating to their vehicle, Trumpia’s Intelligent Text Bot system can function as an automated text messaging attendant that answers common questions by branching customers down messaging paths based on how they respond to texts. For example, a customer asking about an oil change will get the relevant information instantly, and you can even have our system do things like sending them a coupon to entice them to visit.
