Rocket Travel by Agoda supports our partners not only through technology, data and strategic marketing, but also through a customer loyalty team of more than 300 experienced individuals around the world who are dedicated to supporting customers and their travel booking experience.
Our customer loyalty team is prepared to answer questions, solve problems and get customers to where they are going 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The team is on standby to assist customers with earning points and spending points on our white label platforms as well as our consumer facing platform, Rocketmiles.com.
From fielding calls and emails from guests and suppliers to looking at customer insights and identifying technical issues, our team can do it all. We spend hundreds of hours listening to calls and coaching our teams to find solutions that maintain a positive customer experience.
Unexpected things happen on trips and sometimes plans change. Our customer loyalty team provides exceptional service by going above and beyond to negotiate and accommodate special needs or requests. If the customer needs to change a hotel stay or needs a special service on their rental car, we work with suppliers directly to help make their travel plans seamless.
We have a team of specialists who are dedicated to protecting our guests and our business from fraud. We are the best in the industry at uncovering fraud schemes, which helps us keep our costs low so we can pass that cost savings on to our customers.
Our team also understands that unexpected things can happen during travel, and customers might express their concerns with others. That’s why our team monitors various social media sites, looking for unsatisfied customers and reaching out to them to help find a resolution that improves their experience.
The goal of our customer loyalty team is to ensure we deliver fast and effective service. We measure how long it takes for us to answer the contact (SLA 80% within 30 seconds), how quickly we get the problem solved (handle time) and how effective we are in solving the problem (quality monitoring). All of this is important for us to continually innovate and find the best solutions to our customers' problems.
As a tech company, part of our team is constantly monitoring technical issues and patterns, to provide solutions and escalate complex issues to the engineering team. Our team is overflowing with data and customer insights that we use to help guide improvements that enhance the user experience on our platforms.
Recently, our team further improved our customer experience by implementing an AI chatbot, Interactive Voice Response (IVR) to assist customers in need of assistance. This new technology is much more than an automated phone tree; it ties deeply with our backend systems and allows the customer to naturally talk to the IVR and complete common updates to their booking, such as canceling their hotel reservation. Customers answer a few questions in the IVR and the chatbot does all of the work in seconds. This innovative new tool allowed us to respond to feedback and learned insights from our customer base, helping improve handle times and increase satisfaction rates with customers.
Rocket Travel by Agoda partners with some of the largest travel consumer brands in the industry. It’s an honor that our customer loyalty team is entrusted to represent those brands and provide service to our joint customers. We take it very seriously, from understanding what each brand promise entails to matching operating procedures for our customers so they have a seamless brand experience.
The entire customer loyalty team is highly integrated into our business through elevating the voice of the customer, creating flexible contact flows and enhancing our partner’s brand experience.
