Boca Raton, FL, January 15, 2019 — Gubagoo, a leading provider of conversational commerce solutions for automotive dealerships and OEMs, today announced that Gubagoo customers are now able to use Apple Business Chat, a new way for users to communicate directly with businesses using the native Messages app on iPhone and iPad.

Apple Business Chat makes it easy for consumers to instantly connect with dealerships through the Messages app and view vehicle inventory, ask vehicle related questions, book a test drive and schedule a service appointment. With Apple Business Chat, all conversations are instantly routed to Gubagoo’s professional chat specialists who respond 24/7/365 on behalf of the dealership.
