Hero Electric Ups Its Lead Generation Game with WhatsApp
Hero Electric ended the 2022 calendar year on a high with e-scooter sales crossing the one lakh mark. One of the oldest players in the electric scooter segment, the company’s cumulative volumes have crossed over six lakh units since inception. Majority of the EV industry depends on dealers for sales. Hero Electric wanted to reduce dependency on dealers and take charge of the sales on its own. Hero Electric joined hands with Haptik to develop a WhatsApp chatbot that not only answers FAQs but also helps support lead generation through product discovery, product comparison and book a test ride.
With the Haptik chatbot, our customers can easily reach out to us through WhatsApp and get their queries resolved in a matter of seconds. The chatbot is intuitive and easy to use, and it has significantly reduced the number of calls to our call center.
