Today, we rolled out ROBIN’s real-time channel API. This API allows ROBIN customers to connect any channel (with an open API) to their ROBIN customer service dashboard.

This means that as a ROBIN customer you can now add for instance Facebook Messenger or WeChat to your channel strategy and measure conversion on each channel. We have joined forces with TheChatFactory to also unlock WhatsApp - which doesn’t yet have a business API - for your ROBIN dashboard.

At ROBIN we are 100% dedicated to offer our customers amazing support. It’s what we live for. It’s our vision, passion and strategy all rolled up in one. But hey, we’re a customer service software company. Our customers would expect nothing less than amazing support.

The shining customer service example in E-Commerce is Zappos. Their #1 core value is to deliver ‘WOW’ through service and they have build a multi-million dollar business out of it. It’s often advocated on marketing blogs that your E-Commerce store should also aspire to deliver ‘WOW’ through service to attain customer service nirvana - like Zappos did.

But is that the right advice? Should that be your customer service goal? Let’s take a closer look at 'customer delight’ and ask: is it marketing spin or a valid growth strategy?
