WhatsApp for Business

Tailored specifically for teams, WhatsApp for business empowers your dealership to connect with car shoppers at scale. It’s software functionality allows you to send and receive large volumes of messages daily. As well as support unlimited users and devices. And with features like routing and message filtering you can set up you WhatsApp programme to mirror your phone system. Making it possible for you to deliver the same messaging to every customer at scale.


WhatsApp for small Business

WhatsApp for small business lets you connect with customers directly from your personal Device. As the service is tied to one number and device, call routing and creating overflows aren’t possible with WhatsApp for small business.. WhatsApp for business has a separate app making it easily distinguishable from private whatsapp on the same device. And features like quick replies and out of hours messages help speed up response times. Ideal for small businesses and teams who don’t mind sharing one device between them.


WhatsApp Private

The WhatsApp we all recognise and use personally in our everyday. While it allows you to message clients directly, it’s widely regarded as not suitable for business use and poses the biggest GDPR risk for your dealership… as well as the risk of embarrassment if you mistake a client conversation with a personal one.
