See how social media, CAI the Chatbot and a new digital platform are empowering advisors, delivering a dramatic improvement in customer satisfaction and future-proofing this 200-year old brand.
The digital team, and their technology partner Cirrus, have been a catalyst for radical changes at Clarks Shoes over the past 18 months. This has been transformational for both colleagues and customers – and opens up the brand in new ways to their global market. CAI, the chatbot, now takes 70% of incoming contact, half of them out of hours, resolving three quarters, with an 83% satisfaction rating. Fourteen systems have been combined into a unified desktop for advisors and data is captured across every touchpoint. As a result, the business can now listen to what customers want and colleagues feel they have a hand in owning the customer journey. Customer experience is handled in a measured way end-to-end, with a massive uplift in their independent Trust Pilot rating to 8.6 (Excellent). It’s a demonstration of how true supplier partnerships can power change in a receptive business.
