Freshworks recently made headlines after raising $150 million in their Series H funding, giving them a valuation of $3.5 billion. Getting to a multi-billion valuation within less than a decade of its founding is an outstanding feat.
According to Freshworks CEO Girish Mathrubootham, the funds they’ve just acquired will be used in part to further their research and development pursuits. It’s clear that Freshworks aims to keep its customers happy by helping them do the same with their own customers.
Customer satisfaction and user experience are areas of business that can always be improved on, no matter how large or well-established a company already is. The newly-launched customer-for-life platform of Freshworks helps you do just that.
Freshworks Focuses on User Experience
The importance of user experience cannot be understated. If you prioritize positive customer engagement then they’re more likely to stick with your service, buy products, and recommend friends. Brand loyalty is a valuable asset, but you can’t generate that if you don’t prioritize customer satisfaction.
Customer experience used to be a Herculean effort that would require cross-department coordination. Freshworks and all its related products have revolutionized the whole endeavor, turning it into a streamlined process.
The Omniroute™ System
Seeing as Freshworks’ main goal is to take all the little interactions that companies have with their customers and syndicate them into a single channel, it should come as no surprise that they’ve released this Omniroute™ system.
So, what does it do? Well, Omniroute™ takes interactions from phone, email, messaging, chat, and social media then sends the tickets to the appropriate agent. That means employees won’t need to waste time switching between a million tabs anymore.
Another great feature of Freshworks’ new customer-for-life platform is Freddy AI, their machine-learning virtual puppy that’s likely going to be the company mascot in the near future. Freddy is just as functional as he is cute since he serves as “an agent’s best friend.”
Whether it’s solving issues, learning how something works, or finding the best sales leads, Freddy provides a powerful intersection of omnichannel service and artificial intelligence. Freddy is just as helpful with customers as well since he gives them speedy answers to commonly asked questions.
By handling the virtual equivalent of picking up the morning paper, Freddy allows your human agents to focus on the important things rather than having to divide their attention and spread their energy too thin.
We’re not sure if it’s intentional or not, but the canine character design is very fitting since organic dogs also help their masters focus on more pressing matters by assisting with trivial tasks.
Freshworks believes that CRMs should take an all-angle approach to customer engagement. The 360 vision at Freshworks seeks to combine marketing, sales, support, and customer success into a single, easy-to-use platform so that companies can hit every target they aim for.
You can cover all the bases with Freshmarketer, Freshsales, Freshdesk, and Freshsuccess. By staying on top of every touchpoint, you’ll ensure that all customers have a positive experience with your company.
You’ll also be able to analyze all the data through the integrated master customer record that gives you a birds-eye overview. Lastly, the 360-degree model is completed with the many services offered on the Freshdesk platform such as IT, call centers, and live chats.
Freshworks Has a Massive Client List
Ever since Mathrubootham founded the company with Shan Krishnasamy nine years ago, they’ve fallen into favor with consumers and raised hundreds of millions of dollars. As if all that wasn’t enough, they’ve also managed to build up quite the portfolio of customers.
CrunchBase states that the company has 250,000 customers across the globe. These include the likes of Japanese giants Honda and Toshiba along with UNICEF and Cisco — who you’re likely already familiar with if you saw our recent article on the top Cisco VoIP phones.
