Once you’ve selected your customer group you will have the option to either “Review and Send” or “Save without Sending” the group.
 
You will have the ability to save these settings from either option for future use.  

 

Assuming you’ve selected “Review and Send” you will be presented with a listing of all customers that have fallen into your group choice. From this screen you may add or remove customers as you see fit. You can also save the batch for future use. To produce a report for the selected customers select the “Print” button in the bottom right-hand corner.

Icon color key:

If the icon appears GREYED out or BLACK then there are no pending messages.

If the icon appears GREEN then the dealership has received some texts from customers.

If the icon appears RED then there is an issue with Frazer's connection to the text provider's servers. (Typically indicates an issue with the internet or firewall.)

Additionally, the Frazer Retail Installment Contract also includes language under the Terms & Conditions regarding receiving account information via text.

 

Customer Opt-outs

 

From time-to-time customers may opt-out. It's important to respect a customer's wishes in regards to communication. Ignoring a customer's request to opt-out of text communications can lead to steep fines and/or legal penalties.
