European Luxury Retailer Uses Bright Pattern Contact Center Software To Connect In-Store Personnel With Online Customers Using Mobile Messengers And Video

Bright Pattern, a leading provider of AI-powered cloud contact center software, has been deployed by a leading luxury retailer in Europe to expand digital channels and connect in-store associates with online customers during the COVID-19 pandemic using emerging digital channels such as the messenger app WhatsApp.

Due to the pandemic, the retailer had a significant shift in shopping from in-store to online. The luxury retailer swiftly adjusted to a more digital yet personal shopping experience by allowing agents who were chatting with online shoppers to connect with in-store personnel and share in-store product videos with the shoppers. Online agents can take requests from customers to view an item or group of items, and reach out to in-store personnel to capture videos of the products on their phones. Once the in-store representative shares the content with the agent, the agent can then share the videos with the customer via WhatsApp. Special personalized requests such as pairing a handbag with a particular scarf were also use cases made possible by using WhatsApp.

With Bright Pattern’s omnichannel cloud contact center software, the company was able to provide a seamless shopping experience across all popular communication channels including traditional channels like voice, email, and chat, and newer digital channels like video, text message, in-app, bot, and social messengers. Both customers and associates have the power to shift the conversation across channels to personalize their shopping experience which has led to an increase in sales.

“Many companies had to shift the way they communicate with their customers during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Michael McCloskey, CEO of Bright Pattern. “We saw an increase in mobile and digital channels as retail consumers shopped from home during lockdowns, which led companies to add digital channels and provide sales and customer service support in their stores’ mobile apps, over text messaging, and inside popular social messaging apps.”
