What Separates BoatChat from the other chat providers in the marine industry:
Intuitive Software that’s Ready to Go
Whether you take advantage of our managed chat services or if you’re operating the chat software at the dealership, our software is able to be implemented quickly on your web properties. Once you sign up, you’ll plug in information about the dealership that will automatically populate the scripts available on the chat interface. It does this intuitively – no need for the dealership to plug information into the script. Our software takes the information and puts it where it needs to be within the BoatChat interface. It takes no time at all to be up and running with amazing chat software on your dealership website.
Proactive Behavioral Engagement
The way that people reach your website and even particular pages helps to determine how BoatChat software proactively engages them. For example, if someone reaches the website through a search for “Cobia Fishing Center Console”, we can take this behavioral data and address them appropriately with the right message that is most likely to encourage them to contact the dealership. This type of behavioral targeting gives your website a personalized feel and that separates the experience they have with your dealership from the experience they have with your competitors.
One of the main reasons your website visitors engage in chat is because they want information quickly. Maybe they are not quite ready to pick up the phone and call. but they have questions that they feel can not wait. The software gives operators instant access to information your website visitors want, allowing them to answer questions in real time to improve their experience. BoatChat streamlines the buying experience.
Enhanced Mobile Interface
So many aspects of our digital lives are going mobile. You won’t always be at your desk when a message comes in, which is why our mobile interface is the best in the industry, allowing you full functionality even if you’re out on with a customer. From their perspective, the experience is even better. BoatChat pioneered the mobile chat interface for the boating industry and we’re constantly improving it to match every device, operating system, screen size, and mobile website type so that your customers can chat with your dealership when they’re on the go… even if they’re at your competitor’s dealership at the time!
Our SMS “Text to Chat” allows a website visitor to start a chat by providing their mobile number and communicating via text. Our SMS Chat makes it very easy to connect with today’s mobile web users who often prefer text messaging over any other form of communication.
Most Accurate Geo-IP Data
The amount of data available and the ways that it can be utilized is constantly growing. Location-based data can help determine where your customers are from and how to better interact with them. Everyone is using this data. Not everyone is using the most up-to-date information available. Our use of MaxMind gives us an advantage over the competitors because the data is more accurate than any available to the boating industry. We do not use outdated information like most chat providers. Our regular update schedule means we can give you actionable data about your customers that you can trust.
Advanced Security and Privacy Protocols
Between privacy issues, hackers and security threats that plague the internet, many people are becoming cautious of any form of interactions that do not appear to be secure. BoatChat utilizes the most advanced security and privacy controls on our software to ensure that your website visitors can feel at ease to communicate through BoatChat. We then take the next step of separating out all visitor information into individual databases per subscriber. This account isolation keeps your data completely separate from anyone else on the platform.
Instant Two-Way Language Translation
It would be nice to have a multi-lingual team operating chat for your dealership because of the diversity that continues to grow in North America. With BoatChat software, everyone is multi-lingual! Our interface will translate dozens of languages instantly. This happens in both directions; if they are typing in Spanish, it will translate it into English. Then, when you reply in English, it will translate back to them in Spanish. Our software is so intuitive that they could even switch languages in the middle of the chat and our software will make the appropriate adjustments.
Inventory Integration Within Interface
Most people are coming to your website to see vessels. The challenge with most chat software is that the operator often has to bounce back and forth between the console and the website to find the appropriate boats and send them back to the website visitor. With BoatChat, you will be able stay in your chat with the customer thanks to our inventory integration. Find the watercraft you want them to see without ever leaving the console, then co-browse along with them to the exact location on your website.
