About Carwiz

The youngest car rental in Croatia, Carwiz is also the first to start a franchise business outside of Croatia. Its ambitious three-year plans is to appear at least twenty markets in different parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia.

How did live chat improve customer support efforts?

More than 10 support agents are manning their respective customer support stations with nearly all of them answering live chat inquiries throughout the day. This enabled several alternative types of communication over traditional methods such as email. It also helped customers get more details on their reservation, explore additional information. This made following up over the phone that much easier.

Boosting customer satisfaction

Although support and sales team didn’t know what to expect at first, the response from a client reflected the program’s success:

Paldesk was something new to use, we did not know what to expect. It turned out the customers did not have any problems with the new addition – they started pouring in from day one. Paldesk is now the first channel of communication!”- said Paola Kelec, Marketing Coordinator.

Smart agent groups and big teams

Handling as many as 400 chats every day, live chat became their most important online reservations channel. At times, there are as many as 12 clients communicating with sales agents simultaneously.

Their favorite feature: Agent group. Used to separate different departments in the automotive industry like pre-sales, customer support, post-sales, repairs, loans. It’s very important to have a focus on resolving the problem or closing deal by chat. Each department has its own team and agent group so everybody specifically offering the right service for their clients.

As a result, Carwiz rent is offering great customer support, and online sales are one of the most important business elements in this competitive industry.
