  • AI-driven Product Recommendations: Simplr customer service specialists act as personal shopping assistants on a brand’s site, driving more revenue by providing intelligent product recommendations to customers, based on mentioned products or purchase history, with approved on-brand sales verbiage, powered by Simplr’s platform. 
  • Revenue Insights: measure and optimize customer service’s impact on revenue by giving CX and digital leaders intelligence into how their customer service reps and Simplr are impacting sales, driving conversions, and affecting wallet share of customers. Simplr Revenue Insights Dashboard allows leaders to look beyond the typical table-stakes operational customer service metrics and help brands optimize their CX strategy to impact the bottom line.

Together, these new conversational commerce capabilities give brands that partner with Simplr a more seamless path to purchase for buyers.
