Snapdeal, a leading e-commerce marketplace in India, has partnered with Truecaller, an app that helps you identify unknown incoming calls, to enhance consumer experience by integrating Truecaller Priority in the company’s IVR and order confirmation numbers.
Customers with Truecaller app installed on their mobiles will be able to easily identify and filter IVR or delivery verification calls when shopping on the e-commerce platform.
Any calls received by users who have placed an order will be clearly marked as ‘Snapdeal Order Team’ or ‘Snapdeal Delivery Team’, and colour coded in purple.
Jayant Sood, Chief Customer Experience Officer at Snapdeal, said, “This will help reduce a key friction point in the delivery process; ensuring that our customers don’t miss out on any important calls from Snapdeal, and also increase the daily rate of deliveries for us by increasing the call completion rate.”
“We constantly strive to enhance the user experience through safe and efficient products. With Truecaller Priority, Snapdeal ensures enhanced efficiency in its user communications while users get to know that call is critical and for relevant reasons. We are confident that such seamless experience will add immense value to both sides,” said Arun Krishnan, Director, Strategic Partnerships at Truecaller.
