THE CHALLENGE

When they browse Cdiscount’s website, online shoppers can now ask their questions in real-time to independent experts via a chat window and be guided in their purchase decisions. Thanks to this initiative, visitors benefit from a unique and personalised experience with authentic, instantaneous and 24/7 support.

  • These savvy enthusiasts, IT, video games and childcare experts have been selected by ibbü based on professionalism and expertise criteria via a cutting-edge questionnaire about their field of expertise. This first step was necessary for us to evaluate their level of expertise and test their ability to respond to online shoppers and guide them in their purchase decisions.

On average, a conversation between an online shopper and an ibbü expert lasts longer than a conversation with a ‘classical’ customer service agent. This helps create a privileged relationship between our brand and our customers. We want to spread the ibbü service over other product categories on our website in the coming months.

2 QUESTIONS FOR SIMON, VIDEO GAME EXPERT

What’s your expertise in video games?

Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft… I have experience with all the different video game companies. In terms of knowledge and experience, I provide customers who are looking for advice, with my own personal experience. It enables them to have an idea of the products that could suit them best and this inevitably leads to purchases. I’m really happy that my 18-years experience in video games enables me to earn some extra money. I combine my main job with my activity on ibbü.

How do you keep your advice authentic?

My personal touch is everything a chatbot could never do. I use emojis to make the chat more friendly and I am able to use empathy to personalise the experience.  I deliver a level of information and expertise customers don’t usually have access to. I have a sales role but first and foremost, an advisory role of which I ensure that I deliver an authentic experience whilst keeping it professional.
