WhatsApp makes in-service communication much more efficient. Read below the experiences of one of our customers currently using it along with additional advantages of texting.
Hey Daniel, you’ve been using WhatsApp for in-service messaging at Van Poelgeest BMW for a few months now. What have been your experiences?
Daniel, Service Advisor at Van Poelgeest:
“Firstly, Service Advisors previously had to walk back and forth between the counter and their workplace. This is not the case anymore as we mainly text with customers rather than calling them”
“We’ve also found it very useful that everything is written in black and white within the conversation. Clear for colleagues and for the customer”
“We’re also now texting quotes. Our customers can then read them at their convenience and getting sign-off is a lot faster now that we don’t have to call back and forth.”
And everyone is equally enthusiastic?
Daniel: “When I look at my own colleagues in our front and back office, age is a factor. The experienced colleagues sometimes want to pick up the phone, because they are so used to it. I hear from my younger colleagues that they find working with Web1on1 very easy”.
