Do you want to increase your CSI score?

According to the JD Power 2018 CSI survey, customer satisfaction scores increased by 27 points for dealerships using Dealerware compared to those not using the solution.

The 27 point increase was seen within Service Initiation, one of the largest areas of the survey. It specifically highlights service departments that use Dealerware for their courtesy loaner program compared to dealerships that offered a courtesy loaner with any other competitor.

What explains this difference?

Within CSI, the Service Initiation Index represents overall satisfaction as indexed by rating questions such as Ease of Scheduling Service Visit and Timeliness of Drop-off Process. These two data points represent much of what makes up the customer experience.

And just looking at these two data points, the Dealerware scores are significantly higher than with non-Dealerware loaner programs.
