Already we’re able to start conversations between buyers and dealers through an SMS messaging platform we manage. Monetizing those conversations requires information, so, when other providers returned inaccurate and incomplete customer data, we turned to Ekata. The tools provided by Ekata allow us to provide a better connection between the shopper and the car dealership.
