Xtime and Digital Dealer Partner to Honor Customer Experience Excellence This October
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (September 7, 2018) – In today’s margin-compressed reality, a seamless, technology-enhanced customer experience that extends beyond the point of purchase is essential to increasing loyalty and retention across the dealership. To recognize the importance of delivering superior customer service, Xtime has once again partnered with Digital Dealer to present the Customer Experience Excellence Award at the outlet’s Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, NV, October 16-18, 2018.
“Dealerships have an unprecedented opportunity to turn one-time buyers into lifetime customers with an exceptional service experience. The payback is increased profitability both today and down the road when the time comes to purchase their next vehicle,” said Jim Roche, Vice President of Marketing and Managed Services at Xtime and an anticipated speaker at the October 2018 conference. “Partnering with Digital Dealer for the second conference in a row represents Xtime’s unwavering commitment to help aid and honor dealerships’ efforts to reshape the car ownership experience and capitalize on the opportunity in fixed operations.”
To be considered for Digital Dealer and Xtime’s Customer Experience Excellence Award, the dealership or dealer group must be in North America, demonstrate a strong commitment to delivering the best customer experience, and offer multiple examples of superior experiences —online, in-person, service lane, customer waiting room and in-shop.
At Digital Dealer 24 in April, Ferman Volvo Cars from Tarpon Springs, FL, took home the inaugural Customer Experience Award for demonstrating a strong commitment to delivering the best customer experiences through Xtime’s Spectrum fixed operations technology platform.
The selected recipient will be honored on October 16, 2018, at Digital Dealer 25 in Las Vegas, NV, and will be featured in an upcoming issue of Digital Dealer. To submit a nomination, please visit here.
