Premier Limousine CEO Stephen DiMarco In other news, Premier recently launched a suite of new technologies from DriveProfit and Livery Coach that will enhance the company’s customer service capabilities. Realizing the many benefits that these technologies would have in improving how Premier serves its clients, DiMarco spearheaded the company’s swift move to implement these business development systems. The suite of technologies consist of DriveProfit’s REACT online quoting system, REVIEW customer review tool, RELATE customer retention management system and Livery Coach’s online booking tool, which allows customers to receive instant rates and book airport transfers directly online. Since the launch of these technologies, Premier has processed almost 15,000 quotes and received nearly 2,000 private testimonials and over 250 public reviews. Additionally, the company has increased its bookings 10-fold since its web booking tool went live.

“Offering exceptional service, with no detail unattended, has been the backbone for us becoming the leading provider of chauffeured transportation in the Connecticut area,” said DiMarco. “By adding these new industry technologies to our staff, we are better able to provide a much higher level of personal service focused on building authentic relationships with our valued customers.”

Premier is also utilizing the vital data from these technologies to make improvements to their services. In addition, chauffeurs are undergoing rigorous training on using the Premier Limo App, a technology that allows customers to book new trips including tours, track vehicles via GPS updates, receive details on their chauffeurs, and view past trips.

As well as Premier implementing these technologies, Steve DiMarco went the extra mile by closely partnering with DriveProfit to help develop and test its REACT, REVIEW, and RELATE tools. As a result of Steve DiMarco’s involvement, REACT has been found to increase booking productivity by as much as 50 percent and conversion rate by at least 20 percent, more capabilities were added to REVIEW that now makes it better able to grow brand reputation and RELATE’s client relationship building features were improved.
