Autobytel Announces Enhancements to its Texting Platform, TextShield

Autobytel announced that it has enhanced its texting platform, TextShield, by providing dealers with the ability to text-enable existing landlines and toll free phone numbers at their dealerships versus having to promote separate phone numbers that are dedicated to texting. The company says that while the overall TextShield platform offers many benefits, including assisting dealers with regulatory requirements related to consumer consents to text marketing, this latest enhancement increases consumer engagement opportunities for dealers. Any phone number that is currently in operation at a dealership, including existing main phone numbers, special vanity numbers, service numbers, and call tracking numbers, can now be text-enabled while still handling voice calls. Dealers can text-enable any number they wish using their existing carrier, and all text communications between dealers and their customers are routed into the TextShield platform for lead management, follow up, and quality assurance purposes.
