DealerRater, the world’s premier car dealer review web site, announced the addition of multiple new features to its Certified Service Center Program. The additional features include expanded sections on Certified Service Center Review Pages for amenities, hours and multiple photos, as well as the ability to display service specials and coupons with auto-renewing expirations, and highlight top-reviewed service and parts employees. Service Center Review Pages will also now be available on DealerRater’s mobile-optimized site.
Recent studies show that online searches for auto repair and maintenance have grown 66 percent in the past three years, and have even surpassed growth in car and truck searches by eight percent in the past year alone.
“As consumers shift their searches for local maintenance and repair options online, dealers have to manage their reputations through the Internet if they hope to stand apart from competitors,” said Chip Grueter, founder and chief technology architect at DealerRater. “The suite of tools offered in our Certified Service Center Program enable dealers to boost the online visibility of their service business in order to attract more customers and increase revenue.”
