Congested call center leaving customers out of the loop
As the size and scope of the business continued to grow, Retailo still had barriers to overcome.
They identified that they lacked clear and consistent channels of communication needed to further elevate quality of communication with their retailers.
Additionally, the existing call center was unable to handle an influx of requests.
This resulted in increased waiting periods for customers, causing frustration, while also costing Retalio precious opportunities needed to help build business in the establishment phase.
To appease their retail network, continue expanding their network, and build a resounding reputation, Retailo needed a scalable, value-driven way to communicate.
The scope was broad – the solution needed to effectively distribute necessary information with multiple companies regularly, especially topics such as price lists and SKU availability which are updated daily.
Future-proof platform – making the switch to Conversations contact center solution
Retailo selected our Conversations as its go-to customer service platform.
WhatsApp, natively integrated into Conversations, was the channel of choice due to its prevalence, significant market penetration, ease of use, and its ability to keep interactions simple and hassle-free.
Understanding the richness local dialects and language brings to its customers, Retailo opted to use Urdu Roman (which is Urdu written in English letters) to keep the lines of communication clear since it was the preferred language of their local network.
Retailo’s sales teams use Conversations to communicate business-critical information with companies each day, especially price lists which alter daily.
