Challenge: Ensuring customer satisfaction during the pressured, COVID ladened holiday season

Rave reviews, media mentions and iconic commercials have propelled Dr. Squatch to the status of a major brand – with a reputation to uphold. As the 2020 holiday season approached, Dr. Squatch expected an influx of orders. Dr. Squatch proactively searched for a way to engage with their customers while ensuring customer satisfaction. The solution had to be easy to manage and scalable. Fortunately, they found Rise.ai.

Solution: Rise.ai’s automated Store Credit platform

Dr. Squatch customer support staff used Rise.ai’s Bulk Store Credit tool to immediately issue Store Credit to customers. Using Store Credit as a proactive operational tool reduced friction for customer service staff and, simultaneously, produced a seamless and satisfying experience for every single customer.

The Bulk Store Credit tool was only one of multiple ways that Dr. Squatch found to use Rise.ai’s Store Credit platform to enhance their business and revenue. They also capitalized on a smooth refund process and marketed gift cards with powerful options.

We came to Rise.ai for a “last chance shipping” play to catch the late shoppers with gift cards. 

For the holiday season, however, the bulk store credit offering became a stronger value proposition than the gifting itself!

Thanks to Rise.ai we had a solution that our customers loved – we provided bulk store credit as a proactive communication tool.
