With the service, customers able to chat with the customer support agent about information related to bus routes, online booking process, bus timings and even discuss problems that they have encountered during the journey.
Important reason for introducing live chat on a website is because increasingly KSRTC customers are now more tech-savvy and don’t want to take the time to make a phone call or wait for an email response. Having a live chat on a website will help customers without engaging in more time-consuming phone conversations. The result is that customers get the answers they want, faster and easier.
"We want to keep the customer at the heart of everything KSRTC does, so our goal is to establish an online communication channel that would truly enhance the website experience for visitors" says Mr.Manjunatha Prasad, MD, KSRTC.
The new chat service on KSRTC's website will use the best technology and chat practices from around the world. For example - the chat technology will be deployed on web pages where customers tend to have questions and the chat agents see the exact pages the visitors are on and the issues they’re encountering. That means visitors don’t need to explain where they are in the process. This insight speeds the time to resolution, a huge benefit for time-strapped customers. Also, when chat sessions end customers can opt to email the transcripts to themselves and have a written record of the procedure they’ve just been walked through.
Online chat helps KSRTC to get to know who are our customers are and what are their problems in the services. This cultivates customer loyalty and builds company brand, works to increase the value of the benefits customers receive, develops services that provides the information that customer's needs.
In 2012, KSRTC won the prestigious Digiratti Award - 2012 for its successful marketing campaign. It is also active on social networks like Facebook, Twitter and has adopted incredibly innovative customer support practices. The new live chat support is expected to be another important milestone for KSRTC in this direction.
