Technology Enables Largest Auto Glass Specialist to Test "On My Way" Text Alert Prior to Mobile Appointment
COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Safelite AutoGlass®, the largest provider of vehicle glass repair and replacement services in the U.S., has been recognized for its customized technology that supports its mobile appointments: Mobile Resource Manager (MRM). Pegasystems, (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company powering the digital enterprise with Better Business Software®, recently presented Safelite with the Mobile Productivity Award during PegaWORLD 2014, the company's annual user conference. Winners were selected from among Pega's 200+ customers who have deployed Antenna as a mobility solution.
To equip Safelite's technicians with the proper support to provide mobile service, the IT team developed MRM, a proprietary software that is loaded onto techs' smartphones. MRM represents a new way for mobile service professionals to interact with customers. It features everything a technician needs to provide an exceptional customer experience on the road, from daily work order lists and driving directions to secure payment.
Additionally, the latest iteration of MRM has allowed Safelite to test a new feature called "On My Way" text alert. Through customer feedback, Safelite learned that many customers would appreciate a text message 30 to 60 minutes prior to their appointment. This allows enough time to ensure they are at the service location when the technician arrives, but would be close enough to the appointment time to ensure that any schedule changes are unlikely.
Safelite expects to implement the "On My Way" text option nationally soon.

Safelite's MRM technology also earned the company the 2014 CX Innovation Award from the Customer Experience Professionals Association.
