Helpshift Receives 2019 Contact Center Technology Award from CUSTOMER Magazine

Helpshift’s digital customer service platform honored for improving customer service technology and improving the customer experience

September 12, 2019— SAN FRANCISCO— Helpshift announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named Helpshift’s digital customer service platform a 2019 Contact Center Technology Award winner, presented by CUSTOMER magazine.

“We’re thrilled to receive a Contact Center Technology Award from CUSTOMER Magazine. This is a testament to the power of our innovative customer service software capabilities — namely messaging and automation — to transform the contact center and elevate the customer experience,” said Linda Crawford, Helpshift CEO. “Helpshift’s digital customer service platform is built to maximize convenience for today’s consumers, and efficiency for today’s leading B2C brands. It’s great to see our platform being recognized as a leader in the market.”

Having recently launched Helpshift for Phone and Connected Customer Conversations, Helpshift’s digital customer service platform now connects messaging, email, chat, phone support, self-service and bots — and embeds these within a single messaging thread —  enabling consumers to have one continuous conversation with brands. This means customers are able to get support instantly through self-service and bots. The platform can then route customers to an agent on their channel of choice.

By directing customers towards those channels where they get the most efficient support, the platform ensures that customers don’t have to wait around on hold for help. Because the platform carries context from channel to channel, customers never have to repeat themselves or start over. The platform saves that context and conversation history, so both support teams and customers alike are able to access at any time.

Congratulations to Helpshift for being awarded a 2019 CUSTOMER Magazine Contact Center Technology Award. Helpshift’s digital customer service platform has been selected for demonstrating innovation, quality and unique features which have had a positive impact on the customer experience,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “We’re pleased to recognize their achievement.”

This 14th-annual Contact Center Technology Award, presented by CUSTOMER Magazine, honors vendors and technologies that have embraced technology as a key tool for customer service excellence. This award distinguishes their success as innovators, thought leaders, and market movers in the contact center and customer care industries.

Results of the 2019 CUSTOMER Contact Center Technology Award will be published in CUSTOMER Magazine online and on TMCnet.
