In recent years, the importance of customer service has remained paramount, with contact centers playing a vital role in managing customer experience and interactions. Unlike traditional call centers that focus exclusively on voice calls, contact centers encompass multiple digital channels such as SMS, live chat and social media to increase business accessibility. Among all these digital channels, WhatsApp has gained significant popularity as it has a wide global user base.

By incorporating WhatsApp into your contact center, you can reach customers through everyday communication channels and obtain exclusive commercial benefits.

Advantages of using WhatsApp in contact centers

Companies can take advantage of WhatsApp through the Business version. Here are three top reasons to incorporate WhatsApp into customer service.

Customers prefer to text rather than call

A study shows that 71% of consumers ages 16 to 24 value quick responses in the customer experience, making texting the preferred method of communication over phone calls. Instead of customers waiting for agents to answer calls, WhatsApp live chat allows agents to promptly respond to queries, providing instant connectivity that leaves a positive impression on customers from the start.

Rich Media Support

WhatsApp supports the exchange of multimedia content, allowing companies and customers to send images, videos and documents to enrich conversations. With this feature, agents can provide visual demonstrations to explain some complicated issues and facilitate troubleshooting.

Reduced cost

WhatsApp offers cost savings to customers as it is available for free. Additionally, agents can save time and resources because they can manage multiple sessions simultaneously to optimize operations and reduce costs associated with traditional channels.

Secure and reliable communications

WhatsApp values customer privacy and applies strict security measures, including end-to-end encryption. Businesses can build trust by ensuring secure and private conversations, increasing customer trust in the platform.

Common WhatsApp Usage Scenarios for Customer Service

Businesses can leverage WhatsApp to improve their operations in the following scenarios:

Excellent customer service

Customers expect quick responses, especially in emergency situations. For product inquiries, agents engage in one-on-one, personalized conversations to effectively meet customer needs. This includes answering product questions and providing support throughout the entire returns process, from verifying return requests to facilitating payment refunds, ensuring a seamless and satisfactory resolution process.

Technical troubleshooting

Agents take advantage of WhatsApp's multimedia capabilities to provide detailed instructions, such as videos or PDF guides. Customers can answer technology-related questions independently, optimizing support resources and improving the customer experience.

Appointment reminders

Since customers now check WhatsApp messages more frequently than other communication channels, agents can send appointment reminders instantly. By sending these messages in advance and confirming the time, customer communication is improved, reducing the likelihood of missed appointments and increasing overall customer satisfaction.
