Relay Celebrates Customer Service Week 2019

Oct 01, 2019

This October, in conjunction with CX Day (October 1st) and Customer Experience Week (October 7th - October 11th), we've decided to celebrate two of our favorite subjects - Customer Experience and Customer Service - in a big way.


Customer experience is the currency that separates the good companies from the great ones. At Relay, our mission from Day 1 has been to make it easier, simpler and more convenient for businesses to communicate with and serve their customers. Our customer engagement platform empowers businesses to reduce friction and improve the most challenging moments in the customer experience.

With one technology, Relay impacts core metrics for Fortune 500 companies in financial services, healthcare, pharmacy services, energy, cable and insurance. Our multifunctional, highly-applicable approach to customer experience coupled with our vast industry knowledge are the keys to our success. We’ve been able to expand and thrive in multiple industries because we understand that, while each industry has differing goals and success metrics, the recipe for a winning customer experience is exactly the same. Customers want easy and convenient, and for their problems to be solved proactively and in a timely manner.

In her most recent Forbes article, The Future of Customer Engagement is Proactive Service, Relay CMO Brie Tascione discusses our unique approach to customer experience - what we call proactive customer service - and why it works.

"In the age of anywhere, anytime, customers won’t tolerate waiting on hold, being bounced around service agents or navigating websites to find the answers they need. To be on time is to be early, and to be relevant is to be personalized. Real convenience comes with sending proactive solutions before customers are even aware there’s an issue, not reactive solutions people are impatiently waiting to receive."

CX Day 2019: Deliver the best possible experience on a channel that works

In the marketplace of customer experience and CRM tools, Relay stands tall in a category of one. Our breakthrough solution, the Customer Feed™️, is a secure mobile channel with no download required where personalized, high-value communications take place between businesses and their customers. Every customer receives their own private feed, where they proactively receive account information, updates and support from the most important businesses in their lives.

Other solutions promise proactive and personalized but rely on the same cluttered channels as everyone else. Only Relay activates a Feed for every customer for truly personalized experiences.

It all starts with an invite

Low adoption of digital tools and ineffective communication channels prevents businesses from engaging today's consumer. Starting with a simple, timely text message, Relay's solution breaks through the clutter, and through a secure link in the SMS, customers are invited to their own private, personalized Customer Feed without needing a login or download.
