For this they needed a unified and cost-efficient solution that could help them orchestrate the entire customer journey from marketing to support over WhatsApp and leverage the channels conversational capabilities. That’s when they approached Meta to find a communications partner that would help address the painpoints and continuously innovate their CX.
