Deliver a Unified Support and Sales Experience
One of our core beliefs here at Salesmsg is that more conversations lead to more sales.
Aircall has some advanced calling features that help to bring this to life. For example, with advanced call routing and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) capabilities, you can ensure that callers are always directed to the right department or agent.
Not only does this reduce wait times, but it ensures your customers will always be talking to the right person who can help them the most. This means your customer will never get passed around or have to deal with annoying wait times.
Our Salesmsg integration improves this experience further.
With SMS you can reach your customers and prospects any time. With the sky-high open and response rates of texting, you can almost guarantee they’ll at least read your message. Even a simple text follow-up after a call can go a long way toward deepening your customer relationship.
You can also automate your Aircall texting based on specific triggers like missed calls. This helps keep your customers and prospects connect and in the loop, without any spending any additional time.
Another way we’ve been able to enhance our customer support process is by letting our customers text us with what’s called a textable number. So, instead of having to make a phone call, they simply shoot us a text with any questions they have.
It’s a simple thing really, but the results have been phenomenal. Not only does this help resolve support issues quickly, but it’s led to a lot of sales, by being able to address objections instantly.
