Beyond the Service Lane: Being Present When it Counts
Sponsored by PureCars

The service center industry presents significant opportunity: Google reports 77 percent of service shoppers and $88.2 billion are up for grabs. With that much unclaimed revenue and customer potential, it's imperative for your service center to meet consumers with what they're looking for, when they're looking for it-- and fast-- across all devices. Is your service center present when customers are looking? 

Bonus Webinar
PureCars will also be hosting a webinar on July 14 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. CT. During the webinar, Dustin Harris from PureCars will walk through the steps to creating a relevant service experience outside of the service lane, driving them from their computers to your service center.
