WhatsApp for Business solution by Cue

ikeja is connecting the unconnected. As a homegrown tech pioneer in South Africa, they’re bringing affordable internet access to ekasi areas, helping bridge the digital divide. However, with a growing customer base spread across multiple communities, ikeja faced a unique challenge - providing accessible, scalable support while keeping customers online and in the loop.

The challenge: Scaling customer service for ekasi growth

In the past, ikeja faced the challenge of managing customer inquiries and delivering fast updates to its growing user base. With 64% of their sales happening online and an increased demand for affordable internet services, ikeja needed a scalable customer service solution that could handle large volumes of inbound queries efficiently and convert more online customers. 

From installation queries to payment reminders and tower outages, ikeja needed a platform that could provide real-time assistance and updates to its customers. They partnered with Cue to create an omnichannel solution robust enough to:

  • Instantly resolve common queries at scale using their customer’s preferred channel.

  • Reduce call volumes and assist customers via live chat 

  • Reduce customer centre costs while generating and converting new sales leads.

  • Proactively send broadcast messages and updates to their entire user base.

  • Measure and optimise conversation analytics to improve experiences.

The solution: Keeping customers online 

Cue stepped in with a comprehensive suite of customer service solutions, tailored to keep customers connected. By using WhatsApp templates, the sales team can keep the momentum going and take the customer through the entire journey and convert them on WhatsApp as fast as possible,

Since switching to Cue and setting up an official WhatsApp Business account, 64% of sales happen through WhatsApp. Here’s how ikeja uses Cue:

Real-time assistance with chatbots & live chat

ikeja’s chatbot allows customers to manage their accounts and self-serve with menu options like "Payment and Accounts," "Slow Speeds," and "Installations". For more complex queries, ikeja allows customers to easily connect with a human agent via live chat, ensuring real-time problem-solving.

Targeted communication with WhatsApp broadcasts

Sending multiple messages at scale is a breeze with WhatsApp broadcasts. ikeja can now send out targeted messages about network upgrades, scheduled outages, and payment reminders, ensuring their customers are always in the loop.

Multiple conversations across different channels
