Put the power of Apple
Business Chat to
work for you

Contact At Once! makes this possible for every automotive company.

Apple Business Chat beta offers a new way for automotive companies to interact with millions of iOS users through messaging. With it, consumers will be able to see (and tap) a Message icon beside your listings across iOS real estate: Safari, Maps, Siri and Spotlight. Shoppers can then gather information, schedule appointments, and more with brand app customizations - all within the native Messages app.

And with Contact At Once!, you can route those conversations to your team and stay on top of it all!

Why you want Apple Business Chat

Rich. Powerful. And already on every iOS device.

Apple Business Chat is more than just text messaging. It’s a rich user experience integrated directly into iOS with no download required. Lower the barrier to initial contact and keep the conversation meaningful with one-on-one interactions at the consumer’s pace. Whenever they want to take another step, you’re there...in the same conversation thread.

Every Device

Get on consumers’ calendars

With Apple Business Chat, customers could schedule their service appointments, test drives and more (and add it to their own calendar before they forget).


Route conversations per consumer choice

Do they want to talk about buying a vehicle or getting theirs serviced? A built-in feature can present lists of options for shoppers to choose from without leaving the conversation (like sales or service).


Integrate your brand’s app for added power

Manufacturers and others can customize the Business Chat experience by creating an iMessage app extension. Consumers can then download your app and interact with it directly from within your conversation.

Stay in control with CRM integration

Since Business Chat messages will flow through CAO!, the transcript and any consumer profile details shared will be recorded and can be integrated with your CRM. (CAO! already integrates with most leading CRM providers.)

Be there when consumers reach out

CAO! answering apps allow your team to respond wherever they are, so consumers don’t have to wait. The web app (CAO! Connect) is accessible by logging in to any computer, and the mobile app stays with your agents wherever they go.

CAO! clients can also use Live Advisors so consumers get answers when they’re ready. These Live Advisors respond on dealers’ behalf after hours, or whenever they’re too busy.
