This week's Support Insights podcast guest is the incredible Lauren Cunningham, Loom's Senior Support Ops & Strategy Lead.
In Lauren's 2.5 years at Loom, the company went through a mind-blowing growth period—from 700,000 to 10,000,000 users.
For the customer support team that meant dramatically rising requests and issues to handle.
Over the period, Lauren and the Loom team used a number of tactics to reduce the percent of customers contact support from 4% to 1%.
And, the best bit?
The Loom team prioritised customer experience, not ticket deflection, and their CSAT scores remained high.
