Communicating with a big box store does not have to be a big pain

84% of customers DESPISE calling retail stores. Why not let them text you the same way they connect to their family and friends.

Tony Robbins

Properly handling inbound calls can be an impossible task.

Especially with customers standing in front of you. Don't contribute to the stat that says "the average American spends over 1 year of their life on hold."

As easy as we made it for your customers, your employees will love it.

  • Create a queue for every department so the right employees are answering the right questions.
  • Pickup a conversation from any browser, tablet or smartphone.
  • Invite a co-worker to a conversation for help answering a question.
  • Drastically cut down phone traffic allowing your employees to be more available to in-store customers.
  • Cut down customer call backs and remove the aggravation of voicemail and phone tag.

Use Case:

A customer calls in and asks a question about a specific inventory item. Your employee knows that it will take an undetermined amount of time to get the right answer. They say to the caller. "For your convenience, would you like me to text or call you as soon as I have the answer?"

Guess what the customer on the phone will say 8 out of 10 times? TEXT PLEASE!
