Challenge

How do we help the brand’s customers with their questions and concerns related to their satellite and streaming subscriptions, setup and service issues?

With agent wait times growing longer and customers’ appetite for chat options evolving, the brand was looking to expand their reach while also providing customers with more self-serve options in a faster and more efficient medium. It was important for them to have a solution that would save their agents time and improve customer satisfaction.

It allows users to:

  • Sign Up / Activate: Sign-up, active, renew a subscription or upgrade a trial offer.

  • Reset My Radio: Reset the signal to your satellite radio to correct listening problems.
  • Login/Password Reset: Step-by-step directions for users who can't login to their account.
  • Bill History: Search through your previous bills and payments.
  • Billing / Manage Account: Update profile and password info, confirm subscription details, revise payment info.
  • Cancel/Offer To Offer: Cancel your subscription, including offer messages to resubscribe.
