Talkdesk Introduces New Industry-Specific Solution: Talkdesk Retail Experience Cloud

Share

Talkdesk®, Inc., a global cloud contact centre leader for customer-obsessed companies, today introduced Talkdesk Retail Experience Cloud , the AI-powered customer service solution specifically made for retailers. The uniquely designed platform unifies the customer journey across physical and digital channels to help brands meet customers wherever they are. Pre-configured retail workflows and scripts ensure value is added to every conversation, while “retail fluent,” pre-trained AI accelerates speed to resolution.

Talkdesk Research™ underscores the strategic, growth-driving role of customer service in retail. Recent global surveys show that the ability to resolve customer service issues on first contact has become the number one driver of customer loyalty. Other studies show that 72% of shoppers say their preferred channel varies by context, and 86% of retail CX leaders say customer relationship growth will be an agent KPI within the next few years. Designed based on extensive industry research and expertise, Talkdesk Retail Experience Cloud offers a broad range of benefits for retailers, their customers, and their workforces.

Business-centric benefits

  • Drives customer lifetime value and loyalty: Equips teams with tools to deepen customer connections, increase sales, and build brand love through every conversation.
  • Maximizes the tech stack and reduces costs: Improves time-to-value with a platform that is easy to set up, maintain, and monitor; out-of-the-box integrations offer simple-to-build connections.
  • Enhances real-time reporting and visibility: Provides proactive real-time reports, dashboards, and insights from the customer service platform to all functions of an organisation.

Customer-centric benefits

  • Accelerates speed to resolution: Allows customers to connect with organisations in the place, time, or device of their choice, or self-serve through voice and digital channels that are pre-trained to address common retail CX use cases.
  • Boosts NPS and CSAT across all channels: Smart, contextual, priority routing pairs customers with customer service representatives who can best assist them – whether the agent is in the contact centre, in-store, or someone from another department.
  • Reduces customer effort and frustrations: Leverages real-time analytics to identify the reasons behind customer inquiries and combines that insight with proactive communication and automation tools that anticipate customer needs.

Workforce-centric benefits

  • Reduces training, on-boarding, and turnover: Enables teams to fuel customer growth quickly with AI-powered tools, such as pre-configured retail workflows, scripts, next best actions, access into customers’ digital shopping carts, and more.
  • Improves productivity and collaboration: Equips digital and in-store associates with customer interaction history, order details, and all conversations (voice, video, co-browse, social media, messaging, and email) via a single unified interface.
  • Optimises and empowers the workforce: Gives teams personalised improvement opportunities for enhancing service quality, consistency, after-call work, and compliance – all based on customer feedback, transcripts, and KPIs.

“The art of good retailing has never been more challenging. The number of exceptions requiring customer service is increasing and becoming more complex. Some customers prefer speaking to a live person, others want to chat, video, email, or text when they need assistance,” said Steve Rowen, managing partner, Retail Systems Research. “Retailers must meet their customers where they are when it comes to customer service, and technologies like the Talkdesk Retail Experience Cloud enable them to do so.”

“As a global leader in next generation CX, we pride ourselves in supporting retailers worldwide with the best CX talent, digital tools, and consultative services," said Paulo Silva, senior vice president of client solutions, Alorica. "The Talkdesk Retail Experience Cloud will be instrumental for us in continuing to serve our customers with the best technology available.”

“Few people contact customer service because they’re happy, yet every service interaction should result in happy customers. This means every conversation is an opportunity to take customers on a happy path,” said Shannon Flanagan, vice president of retail and consumer goods, Talkdesk. “With Talkdesk Retail Experience Cloud, retailers can easily create that journey – whether that’s providing self-service options that actually work, equipping service associates with tools to deepen customer relationships, or using the gold mine of customer service data to ensure an exceptional experience.”
