Texting in Service, Parts and Sales - Saves Time and Money

The biggest frustration for equipment dealers (and your customers) is phone tag. Farmers are busy. Construction contractors are busy. They don’t have time for a 20 minute call.

Texts are read 98% of the time and turn 20 minute phone calls into 30 second text conversations.

Colleen Fox from Cazenovia Equipment Company

"Kenect has made it so that people stay with us and aren’t bouncing off to go with one of our competitors. I can say that if we hadn’t been texting, we WOULD HAVE LOST REVENUE."
