DAS - Dependable Auto Shippers Launches New eCommerce Site
Automated Online Booking Engine Will Maximize Online Revenue
January 31, 2006
(DALLAS) Jan. 31, 2006 – Dependable Auto Shippers announced this week the launch of its new website platform (http://www.dasautoshippers.com) complete with advanced channel analytic capabilities and a new automated online booking engine. This latest development represents the effort to drive more business to the DAS online channel.
The new online booking engine, developed by The Indigio Group (http://www.indigio.com), allows customers to manage every aspect of their business with DAS via the Internet—from estimate through payment. Once on the website, users can enter the specifics of their project including the details of the vehicle (make, model, and year) along with ship from and ship to location information. From here, customers can select the DAS service packages that best suit their project including guaranteed transit time, expedited service, top load vehicle placement and enclosed carrier service.
“A complete and satisfactory online experience is the expectation of every Internet customer in today’s marketplace,” said John Roehll, Executive Vice President for Dependable Auto Shippers. “Our clients, especially those doing business with us on a repeat basis, demand the tools to manage the process themselves. This new platform provides that—streamlining the business in a way that saves time for both DAS and the customer.”
Users of the new platform will appreciate the simplicity inherent in the site. Working with the Indigio usability team, DAS has created an online product that is intuitive—both visually and from a content standpoint. A concerted effort was made to purge the new site of industry jargon, opting instead to develop the language of the website around common customer terms.
“Indigio has always been about helping clients maximize their revenue stream,” said Tim Higgins, President and CEO of The Indigio Group, Inc. “The DAS site is an excellent example of this approach. Everything we’ve added to this online channel is purpose-driven—it’s all wheat, no chaff. The design improvements are user-driven. The automated booking engine, of course, transforms the website from an information channel to a true profit center.”
