SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- To tackle the ever-increasing volume of queries brands receive on social media, Lithium is bringing to market new capabilities within Lithium Response that let customer care agents automate simple tasks including gathering customer information and answering straightforward questions like flight updates and order status. Building on Twitter's new quick replies in Direct Messages feature, Lithium customers can now funnel automation capabilities into Lithium Response to give customers accurate answers, timely answers, and – when necessary – personalized answers.
"Social has become the go-to channel for consumers to get their questions answered, and brands need to find ways to scale and improve their customer service strategies," said Katy Keim, CMO of Lithium. "With these new capabilities, we're helping brands automate the straightforward parts of interactions so agents can focus their time and energy in the right places – solving complex customer problems, educating customers on products and services, and working through challenges unique to each customer that require a human touch."
"Lithium Response has the tools our agents need to reply efficiently, allowing them to spend more time creating a personal experience for the customer," said Patricia Jimenez, Global Senior Manager, Social Marketing Operations, Spotify. "These automation features will free up even more time for them to be creative and have fun with their work, resulting in much higher customer satisfaction."
"Lithium Response has already helped us significantly reduce our response times from over 24 hours to under three minutes," said Tim Lopez, Head of Global Social Media Customer Care, Symantec. "These new Twitter automation capabilities in Lithium Response have the potential to further streamline a ton of repetitive tasks for our agents, while still keeping the human element in our engagement."
