8×8 has announced 8×8 Sales Assist for retailers. Combining components of 8×8 contact centre, 8×8 CPaaS, and 8×8 Work, the retail solution provides connected journeys across self- and assisted-service use cases while enabling retailers to improve customer satisfaction.

Reflecting the multichannel shopping experience that is preferred by so many consumers, 8×8 Sales Assist allows retailers‘ customers to engage through their channel of choice, including web chat, bot, social media, SMS, email, or voice, for faster, easier shopping experiences and more convenient support resolution.

Now, with 8×8 Sales Assist, retail organizations can take engagement and customer service to the next level, increasing revenue and satisfaction rates.

The solution is designed to:

  • Reduce long call/contact queues
  • Minimize missed or dropped calls leading to revenue loss
  • Provide agents with access to up-to-date customer information
  • Increase first contact resolution rates
  • Escalate customer support issues to video for faster, more efficient resolution
  • Retain the best contact centre talent, reducing staff churn and recruitment costs
  • Enable an educated, informed, and connected workforce, all while generating revenue
  • Leverage targeted outbound engagement for campaigns, promotions, and updates

“Using 8×8 Sales Assist we’ve been able to measure and improve our performance in a number of ways and that means we aren’t missing any opportunity to help people wanting to purchase a new vehicle or support existing customers,” said Chris Gensmantel, CIO at LSH Auto UK.

“With 8×8, we have less dropped calls, we’re able to answer more enquiries, and we’re able to be more proactive in reaching out to customers knowing we’re armed with the information they actually need.”

“Ensuring customers can find and purchase items easily and employees can efficiently and quickly resolve customer issues is a top priority for retailers,” said Hunter Middleton, Chief Product Officer at 8×8, Inc.

“8×8 Sales Assist provides a seamless experience for a connected workforce, delivering agents the information they need to service customers, all through a single interface, to improve first contact resolution.

Ultimately, this is about maximizing every interaction, both for the customer and the retailer – every missed interaction is a missed opportunity.”

The components of 8×8 Sales Assist are delivered through the 8×8 XCaaS (Experience Communications as a Service) integrated cloud contact centre and unified communications platform, which includes cloud contact centre, business phone, video meetings, team chat, and SMS capabilities.
