How Automated Texts Can Help Your Business

One of our team members recently woke up to an early-morning disaster – her coffee maker had died during the night. No coffee. Only flashing numbers on the display.

She immediately contacted the manufacturer. Here’s what happened:

  1. The company asked for proof of purchase.
  2. She found her Amazon receipt and sent it.
  3. They asked what was wrong with the machine.
  4. She explained the display was flashing.
  5. They agreed the machine was dead and sent her instructions for submitting a claim.
  6. She cut the cord on the machine, took a picture of the machine sans cord, and sent it in.
  7. The company replied that her replacement machine would be shipped that day, and she could expect it to arrive in two or three days.
  8. Her new machine arrived, and her caffeine addiction was saved

Our colleague was amazed. She expected the interaction to be time consuming and unpleasant. Instead, it took only minutes to report a warranty issue and have a new machine on its way to her. She didn’t have to argue or justify or complain or talk to multiple customer service reps.

For all she knew, she was dealing with a chat bot and that was fine. She didn’t necessarily need human interaction to solve the problem. All she needed was instructions for getting a new coffee maker ASAP.

Kudos to the manufacturer for making their warranty service process so customer friendly. They couldn’t have done it without a technology commitment.
