CHARLOTTE, N.C. (April 29, 2010) – NASCAR fans can now dial a single toll-free number to purchase tickets to any national series NASCAR event and the best racing in the world.
With the help of Convergys, a global leader in relationship management, fans can dial the official NASCAR directory at 1-866-GO-NASCAR (1-866-466-2722) for tickets and information to NASCAR national series events, including the NASCAR Sprint Cup, NASCAR Nationwide and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
The toll-free number allows many NASCAR fans who attend multiple races easier access to upcoming event ticket options. Seeking to provide fans with a single point of contact for their ticket and information needs, NASCAR chose Convergys’ speech self-service solution for its ability to deliver a superior customer experience while reducing costs.
“NASCAR and the race tracks have always worked hard to give the fans the best possible experience, and now technology helps us do that even better,” said Paul Brooks, NASCAR senior vice president and president of NASCAR Media Group “Convergys understood what our fans wanted and offered a solution that made the ticket-purchasing process easier for them. Our global media assets will now promote 1-866-GO-NASCAR to fans worldwide. This partnership benefits the fans and that is our first priority.”
