Savvy retailers are now utilising video at multiple customer touchpoints - from helping them shortlist a car when searching online, to inviting them back into the showroom towards the end of a finance agreement. CitNOW’s suite of video and imagery applications boosts customer engagement throughout the car buying and ownership cycle.
Images, 360-degree views and video of used car stock marketed online are now a customer expectation. CitNOW’s Web app enables retailers to showcase their stock up close with professional image and video, sent directly to their customer’s device.
Following an online enquiry, retailer employees can create a personal, engaging vehicle walk-around video message using the CitNOW Sales app. Tailor made for individual customer enquiries, it can be used for every stage of the buying journey.
CitNOW Workshop, specifically designed for technicians, provides a visual record of a vehicle health check. In just a few minutes, retailers can take the customer digitally to the heart of their workshop to deliver a clear appraisal of the car.
As more of the car buying journey is undertaken online, high quality digital content and video communications to bridge the gap between digital and physical will be vital to future proof dealerships nationwide.
