Connects Features

Is Windshieldink CONNECTS right for your business?

If you are looking to expand your customer communication channels, CONNECTS is right for your business. Using our Windshieldink mobile app, CONNECTS allows the public to send email messages directly to your service staff simply using a mnemonic keyword.

For example, if you are a roadside assistance provider, you can set up a CONNECTS ID with the word “TOW”. Customers can use our mobile app to send a service request and their location to your business simply using the word “TOW” rather than having to remember your phone number or email address. The customer email message can include their contact information and GPS location in a clickable map link. This way you know who they are, the reason why they are contacting you, and where they are located.
