How Can a Phone Tree App Improve Customer Messaging?

Today’s buyers are shopping on mobile devices more than they ever have done before, and this trend is set to continue over the coming years. So, brands need to do all they can to facilitate easy eCommerce via mobile devices. But it’s not just about the mobile shopping itself.

Forward-thinking companies are now equipping their customers with the technology they need to access customer service teams, via their mobiles. Phone Tree Apps are leading the way here, making it possible for customers to connect with service personnel without having to lift a finger.

Integrating seamlessly into the IVR phone tree, Helpshift enables consumers to “Dial 1” to access all the benefits of a brand’s customer messaging platform – and this makes all the difference to the customer experience.

Phone Tree App Example Scripts

We’d like your organization to have customized messages so that they’re personalized for your customers but here are some examples of phone tree scripts that can be used:

  • Cancellations: “We’re sorry the event has been cancelled due to bad weather”
  • Emergencies: “One of our team have been in an accident, meetings today cancelled”
  • Updates: “We have hit our quarterly targets! Thank you for all your hard work”
  • Reminders: “Please remember to bring sunscreen and a hat to this afternoon’s meet”

These are great ways to keep everyone informed in a concise and efficient manner.
