    Well whilst Kwik-Fit are playing silly Bs that should provide a bit more work foe the rest of us. Customers are not looking for a plethora of electronic communications, they are loking for first class service.

    If you guys really believe in the age of smart phones, i-pads etc that the easiest way to market new prospects as well as maintaining current ones is still to call, leave a voicemail and mailshot them, then your the ones that will fail. Customers are indeed looking for first class service, but the age of marketing prospects with a mail flyer for MOT's or Service etc is long gone. The method of marketing needs to be targetted, relevant and effective, and mobile technology is where its at. Everyone laughed when Kwikfit got into insurance, but they weren't laughing when all the customers that had applied for quotes were then actively marketed . . . .
