Continue reading to explore avenues with DoubleTick WhatsApp API as we walk you through its features, benefits, pricing and why it's one of the best WhatsApp automation solutions for your business.
What are the Potential Drawbacks of Existing WhatsApp API Tools?
The problems are evident! These solutions are made for large enterprises to function primarily on laptops and desktops.
Here's a little background to it. When the concept of WhatsApp API was introduced, it targeted large enterprises. Since managing large-scale data was not a cakewalk for the business, they wanted a dedicated sales tool to collect, organize and manage all customer-related information in one place. Many solution providers realised this problem and quickly released a solution that somehow fixed the challenges but not at an efficient level because these are primarily built for large and medium enterprises. They are mostly complex, expensive and desktop-based solutions. However, the scenario won’t sit well with today’s small and medium enterprises.
Let’s consider the following situation:
● You have signed up for a WhatsApp API solution and deployed your sales and support team to connect and interact with your customers.
● The platform is desktop-centered, and the chatbot has limited automation features.
● In the evening, your team wraps up the work and calls it a day.
● At night, your customers tried to reach out to you, but since your team is unavailable and the chatbot is not advanced it can only answer predefined queries due to which the customer gets frustrated. This way many customer queries go unanswered.
● When a string of customers goes through the same experience, the dissatisfied customers begin to look for alternatives.
● Eventually, the business loses loyal customers and this would hurt the business.
In a nutshell, Customers come with preferences and priorities when it comes to communication and service. No immediate availability of service could deflect them to your competitor's site and that in turn could kill your sales rates. That’s why it’s important to supercharge your sales team with the right commerce communication tool.
