Intercom is an Internet based software application designed for customer engagement and communication, in particular with website users. It acts as a sort of customer relationship management program that helps companies to build and manage relationships with customers. Shippit is a third party app that allows you to track orders placed from your store. Integrating them together will allow users to keep track of all the products they have ordered from the same place. In this paper, I will be discussing how Intercom can help shippit improve their service by providing better client services and keeping track of orders from their website.
Intercom is a company that has been around since 2011, that is a very short time for a company especially when it comes to tech companies, however it has managed to become one of the best and most popular customer engagement platforms out there. The reason behind its popularity is due to the fact that it is very easy to use and integrate into other applications, which is exactly what we are going to be doing here. The first thing we need is a way to integrate Intercom into our shippit account, we will do this by using our API’s to connect both accounts together. We will also need the ability to create integrations between two companies’ accounts, luckily shippit has an integration center where we can create integrations. What this means is that we will create an integration between our Intercom account and our shippit account, if you are not familiar with integrations you can think of them as connections between two programs so that they can communicate with one another. The steps for creating an integration between the two accounts are:
On Intercom. Create an Account and get your Client ID and Secret Key.
On shippit. Create a new Integration Account (this should be created by the person who owns the shippit account.
On shippit. Enter your Integration account credentials in the “Integration Credentials” section on the shippit platform. This will create an application key.
On Intercom. Get your App ID (which can be found on your Intercom dashboard. and enter it on the “Shippit Credentials” section on the shippit platform.
Once this has been done, your accounts should be able to communicate with one another, this means you can now read messages from one account from the other account. For instance if you receive a message from someone through shippit saying. “Hey my package went missing” you can then see this message from your Intercom account as well. This will allow you to provide better customer service because you can keep track of all queries from your customers in one place rather than having multiple places where they contact you. This will also allow you to know when a shipment was made or not made depending on whether the customer receives a message through either shippit or intercom.
The main benefit of integrating our two accounts is that it will allow us to provide better customer service because all queries will be seen in one place rather than having different places where customers send messages about their order. This will also allow us to keep track of all shipments that have occurred and those that have not occurred, also it will allow us to see where a message came from and who sent it, since it will show us which company it came from. This will help us to know what kind of information that needs to be put on our website, such as “if you want to know when your package was shipped, send us a message on our website” or “if you would like to know if your package has arrived at its destination, send us a message on our website”. This will help us save time because we have everything in one place rather than having multiple places where we might need to check if a user sent us a message on them. We will also be able to see whether or not a user has received their package on time or not, for instance if they sent us a message saying “Hey my package got lost” we will know if they actually received their package or not because we will see the last time they logged in through Intercom or Shippit. We can also provide links on our website for users to log in or sign up for either one of these applications since they are already connected together automatically. An added benefit is that we can use our integrations to set up rules; for example we could create a rule that says “If anyone messages us saying that their package did not arrive within a week after it was supposed to be delivered then send them a link asking them if they would like to make sure it was delivered properly”. If they reply saying “yes” then we would set up a rule that would automatically send them a question asking them if they would like to get an extra delivery attempt or a refund for their order, this would help us save time because we would only have to ask them once and it would happen automatically every time someone said something similar afterwards. Also since both companies are online they can be used 24/7 without any problems or disruptions, this will ensure that customers are always able to reach us if they want something changed or if they want more information about their product or shipment. Another benefit is that customers can just log in using their email address instead of having to remember or search for a username and password combination which makes things easier for them. Lastly, if customers want to contact us via email then they may not remember our website address so they could just use intercom which would link them directly to our website without having to search for anything else. We could also create lists for each shipping company so that when someone contacts us for one shipping company we can tell them about the shipping company they contacted us about while helping them with their issue without having them have to explain everything again. This would save time and effort because it would make it easier for customers to understand what happened in case of any problem with their order since they could just read how the issue was dealt with before and if they had any questions then we could answer them based on the information we had already given them before without them having to ask twice about things they already knew about before.
Integration between two companies such as intercom and shippit is very important because it allows companies to provide better customer services while saving time and effort on both ends without being disrupted by things such as bad weather or strikes at shipping companies causing delays in shipments. These problems could have been avoided if both companies were connected together which would allow us to give out more accurate information and deal with all issues much faster regardless of where people send their messages from or how many messages we receive from different people asking about different things at the same time.
