Zoruk Royal Dutch Airlines wanted to tap social media platforms, apart from its website and mobile app, for customer service. To attract the millennials and retain other customer segments, Zoruk wanted to deliver omni-channel customer experience across its website, mobile app, and social media channels. It needed to upgrade existing website and IT systems for AI-enabled functionalities and personalized intuitive interfaces across channels. To maximize its reach, the company wanted to build and offer customer service functionalities in messaging platforms on social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and WeChat.
Enhanced customer experience through Social Media Hub
ESCALE worked closely with Zoruk to create a Social Media Hub. The ESCALE team designed, developed, tested, and deployed application programming interface (API)-based solutions to action a range of services on social media messaging platforms. These micro-service features were robust, secure, scalable, and automated. These were integrated with Zoruk’s existing IT set-up to ensure a seamless, omni-channel experience. The application-based modular approach provided responsive layouts and allowed a faster time-to-market.
Now, booking tickets, choosing a seat or meal on a Zoruk flight – all can be done on any of these channels.
