FIXED OPS JOURNAL

FEEDBACK

App or adviser? Service
customers go either way

M

obile phones have
become so commonplace that it's
almost like they're
a permanent extension of our
arms.
Now, their functions extend to
the service drive: Mobile apps let
customers set appointments,
check in and even compile a list of
needed repair work, all without
customers ever speaking to a service adviser.
But do customers prefer this
mobile method?
In mid-July, Fixed Ops Journal
asked DealerRater to poll service
customers to see whether they
preferred to use their mobile

phone to make a service appointment, check in for that appointment and outline what maintenance and repairs were needed.
Four in 10 said they did not want
to use a mobile phone for those
tasks. About a quarter of respondents said they would prefer using
a mobile phone, while about onethird felt the question did not apply to them.
The survey results are not as lopsided as the question posed for the
April issue of Fixed Ops Journal
that asked customers whether
they preferred to check in using a
kiosk. An overwhelming 97 percent said they wanted to speak to a
service adviser instead. 
