How teams are using Trengo to provide better customer service

better customer service

Providing above-average customer service is more challenging than ever. Today’s customers expect high-level service that is completely tailored to their needs. As a business, you need to be available 24/7, reply fast, offer self-service options, and most of all: make your customer feel appreciated.

And with the ever-increasing workload, businesses need to work smarter (not harder) to exceed those expectations.

Meet Trengo

Trengo is a new way to delight your customers. Our platform enables your team to offer a seamless customer experience on all your channels. Manage all your conversations in one view, automate the busywork, integrate important apps, provide self-service, and monitor your team’s performance. All in one place.

Below, I’ll cover why you should consider switching to Trengo.

One platform for all your communication

Customers want to be able to reach you on their favorite channels. With a wide variety of channels, it can be challenging for teams to manage them efficiently. Because of this, messages get overlooked or customers have to wait too long to get a reply.

In Trengo, you can manage all your communication channels in one platform. From email, live chat, and phone to WhatsApp Business, Instagram Messaging, and Facebook Messenger. This enables businesses to be active on all their customer’s favorite channels, without feeling all over the place.

Trengo's omnichannel inbox

Teams can easily work together on answering customers. Not by switching to external apps, but by @tagging each other within chat threads. This enables teams to quickly solve their customers’ issues.

Reply faster with automation

If customers value anything, it’s time. When they ask a question, they expect you to reply within minutes. And when you do, they want you to take your time to help them sufficiently. No matter how complex their issue is.

Trengo helps your team make time. By using automation, you spend less time on busywork and more on quality time with your customer.

Rules

You can set rules to automate repetitive tasks, such as:

  • Labeling conversations
  • Assigning conversations to colleagues
  • Inform customers during peak hours
  • Measure customer satisfaction

With this rule, every message that contains the word ‘orders’ is assigned to Anna Davis.

Chatbots

With a chatbot, you can automatically answer frequently asked questions like:

  • “What are your business hours?”
  • “What’s your return policy?”
  • “Can I get a discount?”

Bots also collect leads while forwarding questions that are too difficult to answer to a human colleague. This way, the bot will never frustrate your customers.

Quick replies and auto-replies

Another way to answer frequently asked questions efficiently is by using quick replies. These standardized answers can be used on channels like email, live chat, WhatsApp, and Instagram.

An example of a quick reply in Trengo.

When you are being contacted during a busy period or outside of business hours, you may not always be able to reply right away. In this case, you can set up an auto-reply. This can be set for multiple channels like email, WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook.

Always respond instantly with an auto-reply.

All your apps are within arm’s reach

When communicating with customers, you often need to access other apps to help them sufficiently. Without the right integrations, you’ll find yourself clicking back and forth between Trengo, your webshop software, stock management software, or CRM system.

That’s why you can integrate apps like Shopify, Lightspeed, Magento, Zapier, Pipedrive, and more. This helps you to create an experience without friction for both your customers and your own team.

Provide self-service with a Help Center

It’s the information age. No matter what your question is, if you type it into a search engine, you’ll most likely get some type of answer. Many customers prefer to try this method first, before reaching out to a customer service employee.

With a Help Center, you enable customers to help themselves. Simply create articles around recurring topics, and make the Help Center accessible on your website or even in your live chat widget.

Monitor performance with analytics

With CSAT (Customer Satisfaction), you can measure how your customers feel about the overall experience they had with your brand. By creating your own surveys, you can collect qualitative feedback from your customers.
