For staff training and dealer / customer protection

Call Recorder

Call Recording uses DMS integration to identify your callers and stores the call against their CRM record.

Unlike our competitors, every call is recorded without the annoyance of dialling a prefixed number, so it’s easy to find any call recording in just a few clicks.

How can Call Recording help your dealership?

Identify training needs
By listening to real calls, you can see if sales leads are being handled correctly and if employee’s telephone manner is consistent with company expectations.

Maximise up selling opportunities  
By listening to a selection of calls, you can quickly assess if staff are consistently up-selling products and services. It’s a chance to see where the gaps are in your call process.

Protect your staff and customers
When your team are talking to customers regularly, sometimes misunderstandings or disputes can occur. It’s not nice when this happens, but if every call is recorded and stored, then disputes can be settled quickly and easily. This simple step can protect both your staff and your customers.

See how Knights BMW,  winner of AM magazine’s 2012 Excellence in Customer Service Award, used call recording to improve their processes.
