SMS Chat

How could your business use SMS Chat?

Complaints handling

Streamline your customer experience with real-time two-way conversations via SMS Chat. 

When things go wrong, it’s essential your customers feel valued and understood. Keep customers engaged with human interaction from the first point of contact: No lengthy call queues, time spent on hold, or confusing phone menus.

Our secure SMS Chat platform records all conversations, so you have complete visibility of customer data, allowing you to continually improve your customer service offering.

Payment collections

SMS provides a far more effective way to connect with customers who need to make payments. Phone calls take time and cost substantially more than an SMS, and there’s no guarantee agents will get through.

With SMS, customers can respond at a time to suit them. Validate customer ID, agree on payment plans or take payment through PCI compliant platforms – all on one easy-to-use channel.

Claims management

Claims can be stressful for customers. Businesses must take a customer-centric approach to claims management to ensure customers feel valued and understood. 

Keep your claimants up-to-date with timely progress updates delivered via SMS. If customers have any questions or concerns, they can start a two-way conversation via SMS Chat to get the answers they need without hmaking a call.

All conversations can be saved and delivered as a report.

Delivery updates

Send an order confirmation straight to a customer’s mobile handset. You can also keep them up to date with the order’s progress, and if they need to make any changes to the order, such as a delivery address or time of the delivery, they can reply to the SMS message to start a two-way chat.

Customer responses are directed to the customer service team with a copy of the original message to respond quickly and accurately.

Appointment bookings

Streamline your appointment booking process with a central place to schedule, confirm or reschedule appointments. There’s no need for customers to switch between web pages, booking forms, or make phone calls.

SMS Chat makes it easy for agents to manage multiple bookings simultaneously, rather than dealing with a queue of customers on the phone. 

Anything from an engineer’s visit to a doctor’s appointment can be handled quickly and easily using SMS Chat.
