About the Team
Help Experience is a key function of our customer care vision of providing a consistent and high quality problem resolution experience for our users. Our Help Experience team, a part of the larger CareTech team, is a group of engineers of various specialties based in Bangalore. We?re in charge of creating the most user-friendly experience for our customers in need, generating new customer contact channels, providing high quality help related content, as well as offering in-app support for driver-partners, merchant-partners, and customers. Ultimately, our goal is to ensure all of our users have their questions and concerns met as effectively and efficiently as possible.
One of the biggest obstacles our team has had to overcome is reducing the time to resolve support tickets. After many weeks of research, collaboration, and trial and error, we figured our best way to tackle this issue was to de-emphasize unstructured channels, such as email and phone, and rely more heavily on structured support schemes. Currently, our team has been busy working on our chatbot feature, enhancing its user experience and integrating it with the ticket automation engine to expedite the resolution rate.
Off hours, you?d probably find us playing foosball or eating at Saravana Bhavan. Working from home has been a strange time for a lot of us, so our team has been taking time on our calls to trade advice on the best ways to keep sane with this new work set up. We?re made up of tech and sports enthusiasts, food lovers, and movie fanatics. Once COVID subsides, we?re excited to resume hanging out in restaurants again.
