The problem

Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions wanted to grow their leasing offerings for SME and personal customers to match their established fleet leasing programme. So, they carefully planned their digital marketing drive to target young companies and customers with the perfect SEO and PPC. But Hitachi realised new visitors weren’t converting onsite to request quotes.

How do you deliver a brilliant digital engagement strategy that results in qualified leads for your sales team and represent your brand with award-winning service?

Answer: Managed Chat by The Chat Shop
