ATLANTA, Dec. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Contact At Once!, a LivePerson company (Nasdaq: LPSN), announced today that AutoSweet, the automotive industry's leading automated ad posting solution, has chosen to add text and chat capabilities to AutoSweet classified products using Contact At Once! Chat and Mobile Text Connect. Powering the AutoSweet platform with Contact At Once! Mobile Text Connect will provide consumers the choice to call or message a dealer when they click on an ad listing or navigate to a vehicle detail page (VDP).

"AutoSweet's SweetClassifieds™ publishes a dealer's inventory to the top classified and social media sites and now with the addition of texting and chat from the VDP, those shoppers will be able to get their questions asked and answered quickly, which can lead to increased sales for our dealerships," says Christopher Lentz, AutoSweet founder and President. "It is also vitally important that our dealerships text with consumers the right way, which means using a solution like Mobile Text Connect to automate permissions-based processes and help dealerships capture conversations in their CRM."

Contact At Once! provides the automotive market's most widely deployed digital connections platform used to embed text-based messaging in online advertising, on websites, mobile sites, in social media and in online reviews. Over 6,000 businesses are enabled with Contact At Once! texting solutions, and the company is on track to empower more than a million mobile interactions among businesses and consumers in 2015.

"The consumer has moved on from voice calls in their everyday lives," says Contact At Once! General Manager John Hanger. "Offering shoppers the choice to message dealers about their vehicle interests provides a communication channel that aligns with how consumers prefer to connect, and fuels stronger engagement and sales." Contact At Once! customers have reported lead lift of 20% or more when consumers are given the choice to chat or text versus phone or email alone.
