What’s the biggest impact Gladly has made on your business?
“Gladly has increased customer satisfaction, trust, return rate, loyalty, and opportunities for product education. It has provided us with a consistent voice to the customer across multiple communication channels.”
Did Davines add any new channels with Gladly?
“With Gladly we were able to add SMS (text an expert), Live Chat, and Facebook Messenger. We were also able to incorporate Narvar and Refer-a-Friend.”
How has Gladly helped with customer satisfaction?
“Our overall response time has decreased from 3-4 days to under 1 business day. We have fewer customers who need to follow up repeatedly or reach out over multiple channels because they have not heard back from us. With the automated responses we communicate much faster and more efficiently and effectively to our customers, ultimately leading them to be more pleased with the Davines brand.”
“Gladly has helped decrease overall time spent on customer care; it’s no longer a time consuming and tedious job for our agents. Now it is much easier to share the workload and focus on additional internal marketing projects to better educate our customers.”
