Gorgias is an e-commerce help desk that turns your customer service into a profit center. We discuss the role of understanding users' preferences and how Gorgias deals with their team to provide a quality experience for their users. Claudia also highlighted how they provide customers with fast and personalized help.
Gorgias’ challenge was keeping their new users happy throughout onboarding. Originally, they solved this problem by funneling all their new users to a customer success manager. This ostensibly gave each new user the type of personal, high-touch approach that can mean so much in customer service.
However, not all users want a human onboarding experience. To further complicate matters, high-touch experiences can be hard to scale once your customer numbers start to increase exponentially.
So, Gorgias created an automated onboarding process that could cater to those clients who didn’t want to set up a call with an actual customer success manager.
To accomplish this, Gorgias added a modal window after signup that asked users what they wanted: To book a call, get started with an automated guide, or something else entirely.

“Giving users the option to get help from a product specialist is just a quick way to also understand user preferences and kind of highlight any issues or any friction points that our users are having in getting set up.”
