Case Studies

Here are two cases to see how Udesk revolutionizes customer service for the hotel and tourism industry. 

Udesk X Hilton

Background

Hilton Hotels is a globally renowned brand and a shining example of forward-thinking in the hospitality industry. Hilton's footprint extends across more countries and regions than any other full-service hotel brand, with over 570 hotels and resorts in 79 countries/territories across six continents. However, despite its widespread recognition and extensive service offerings, Hilton faces some challenges in customer service due to the high volume of inquiries and diverse needs of its clients.

  1. Hilton (Japan) lacked online communication channels and sought integration with LINE for customer queries. Additionally, the platform lacked support for Japanese language in both the backend and frontend interfaces.
  2. The frequency of customer inquiries was high, with many repetitive questions, leading to a heavy workload for customer service personnel and low efficiency.

There was a pressing need for an efficient intelligent tool to enhance customer service capabilities. Udesk proposed the following comprehensive solutions:

1.LINE Channel Integration

Udesk offers seamless integration with LINE, providing a channel for users to inquire in multiple languages, catering to the diverse linguistic needs of those seeking information.

2.Overseas Site Deployment

Deploying overseas nodes will mitigate latency issues for international visitors accessing the domestic platform. This deployment aims to enhance customer experience, making the integration with overseas channels more convenient.

3.Intelligent Customer Service Chatbot

Implementing an intelligent chatbot to handle repetitive and common queries independently. This solution alleviates the workload on human customer service personnel, allowing them to focus on more complex issues and enhancing overall efficiency.

The implementation of Udesk's comprehensive solutions has yielded significant outcomes for Hilton Hotels and Resorts, it provides multilingual online consultation, effectively addressing language differences has enhanced the internationalization of user services. The introduction of an intelligent chatbot has successfully alleviated the workload on human customer service, particularly in handling repetitive and common queries. Customers can now obtain quick and accurate service through the chatbot, resulting in improved overall efficiency.

Udesk X MEIYA

Background

MEIYA Airlines, affiliated with MEIYA Group, is a major B2B international air ticket distribution platform in China. MEIYA also meets the same issues like Hilton: repetitive questions, low customer efficiency, etc.

Udesk gives exclusive solutions based on MEIYA's own circumstances.

Intelligent call routing

With intelligent call routing, inquiries are automatically directed to the right agents depending on their skills, channel, availability, or all three. Udesk's implement automatic call distribution (ACD) with skills-based and intelligent routing to ensure every customer receives the right support.

Omnichannel agent desktop

An omnichannel agent desktop is an interface that provides a complete view of a customer's history and interactions across all communication channels. It gives agents the context needed to provide the best possible customer experience.

Self-service options

IVR systems, knowledge bases, community forums, AI chatbots, and other automation tools help customers help themselves. When customers can solve basic problems on their own, agents and managers can focus on helping other callers with more complex or urgent needs.

With Udesk's Call Center, MEIYA has established a nationwide 24/7 1-on-1 dedicated customer service contact center to offer professional international air ticket travel solutions for customers and partners. It has enhanced personalized service experiences and achieved improvements in customer satisfaction.
