At the Internet Retailing Expo 2019 (IRX), ROBIN’s Brand Chief, Michiel Gaasterland was interviewed on camera by IRX’s Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Ian Jindal.
Tech tools alone will not keep customers happy.
A customer is on the phone with a Customer Service Rep, frustrated about a clothing item that was supposed to arrive but hasn’t yet.
The Rep refers to her ROBIN dashboard, and sees it’s not the first time this customer has called in anger. But this is also not the first product he has purchased from the company.
Integrating your VoIP, or phone system, into your customer service tooling landscape can prove challenging. You want one user experience for agents that contains all relevant customer data - from every channel – available at a glance.

We seen it a million times. An eCommerce director sits down to talk with their customer service team lead about the pressure customer service is under and how to solve it, get it under control.
At some point, one of them says, “We really need to reduce the number of customer questions we’re getting in”. Both nod in agreement and walk away, happy they’re on the right track.
But are they?
In What to Bot, the first of this two-part mini-series, we cut through the AI hype and ended by offering a simple formula to help you decide whether to bot or not. Overall, the answer was a resounding, yes!
But not everything that can be botted should be.
AI and chatbots have been such a huge topic for us and our customers at ROBIN this past 12 months that we’ve put together a two-part, deep-dive blog post in which we will help you:
- Cut through the BS around AI and chatbots;
- Figure out what to bot and what not to bot; and
- Win at customer service in a future that will be dominated by those who get the best out of both tech and humans.
When Photospecialist first began offering livechat it was immediately met with success, but it also brought with it new customer service demands. First and foremost customers appreciate the quick, expert advice, and the conversion on live chats is spectacular!And yet the channel also faces some challenges. Perhaps the biggest one is to remain consistently available for customers.
