Founded in 2019, LivingStone Stays is revolutionising the way people spend their leisure time - making holidays a way of life. Their platform is a one-stop solution for discovering, planning and booking an experiential holiday.
Challenge: Lack of a centralised multi-agent platform to collaborate with teams, oversee customer & property owner conversations.
- Team members lacked a centralised dashboard like inbox to access all customer, partner and property owner conversations to coordinate travel planning.
- Agents used multiple phone numbers to assist in travel planning and there was confusion between the various end users on which number to contact.
- Messages were manually drafted by agents, thereby taking more time and effort by team members.
- The managerial team were unable to oversee all conversations carried out by sales, support and marketing teams.
- IVR although providing a quick response rate was not intuitive enough for the team to acquire lead qualifying data.
“Our team's overall efficiency in communication with customers, partners and property owners has increased after using Gallabox.”
Solution Provided: LivingStone Stays shifted their communications from IVR to Gallabox’s WhatsApp Business APIs
- The collaborative, multi-agent login feature of Gallabox helped LivingStone Stay's agents to access customer, partner and property owner conversations under one single WhatsApp number. They shifted their communications from IVR to WhatsApp Business APIs to increase efforts taken by team members.
- Gallabox created a rule-based chatbot to collect qualifying lead data so that agents could take over conversations more efficiently.
- The WhatsApp template message creation streamlined their manual efforts to coordinate with the user and assist in travel planning. They have now created templates for all of their use cases across all verticals.
- LivingStone Stays integrated their Zoho CRM with Gallabox to access and store their contacts to WhatsApp broadcast campaigns to a larger audience.
“Gallabox has significantly helped us in streamlining our entire communication with our partners and customers. As WhatsApp is the most common platform for communication these days, this makes Gallabox a very powerful tool! Through Gallabox, we were able to make WhatsApp a central communication channel for our company.”
