Otta's take

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

With the surge in online shopping, eCommerce merchants are increasingly prioritizing customer communications to enhance the overall shopping experience. This heightened emphasis puts greater pressure on support teams to promptly and accurately address customer inquiries.

Gorgias offers an all-encompassing customer support helpdesk equipped with artificial intelligence tools tailored for customer service teams. The platform allows eCommerce businesses to streamline responses to frequently asked questions through a single application. By automating these responses, support agents can allocate more time to engaging in meaningful and profitable interactions with customers, thereby potentially driving sales.

Catering to over 10,000 stores, including prominent brands like Princess Polly, Steve Madden, and Marine Layer, Gorgias faces competition from established players like Zendesk, Freshdesk, and HelpScout. Despite this, the company has experienced notable growth, expanding its presence across the US, Europe, and Australia. Along with funding that will fuel the development of its Automation Add-on feature, aimed at providing customers with instant answers to alleviate support workload.
