"To me, Kenect Payments is about increasing customer confidence and empowering your sales people... It's fantastic. I wouldn't want to go back to not having it."

Who is Byron Powersports?

Byron Powersports is a one-stop dealership for ATV, UTV, motorcycle/scooter, PWC, tractor, and side x side.

The ability to choose from both new and used, plus top brands like Yamaha, Can-Am, and Suzuki have made Byron Powersports a Georgia favorite. With a fully stocked parts department and factory-certified service department, business is booming in Byron.


Byron Powersports had a few key challenges:

- Needed a more simple, secure payment process for collecting deposits

- Service tickets were open too long waiting on payments.

- Employees time was being wasted with voicemails, phone calls, and emails.


Implementing Text-to-Pay. Through Kenect's platform, employees can send payment requests to customers via text message which allows customers to make payments in a few simple taps.

Each department at Byron Powersports is now utilizing the Text-to-Pay functionality, which has resolved the challenges they were facing.


After starting Text-to-Pay in 2020, Byron immediately received consistent positive customer feedback on the text payment function.

In addition to the increased customer satisfaction, the employees at Byron saw vast improvement in efficiency and time management as the Text-to-Pay process hit each department of the dealership.
