The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

ONEHOPE Wine, Customer Service Manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Helpware?

Our company hired HelpWare to help us with overseas staffing.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goals were to partner with HelpWare to develop confident and knowledgable employees overseas. Our goal in selecting overseas employees is to provide longer hours of Customer Support as well as coverage over USA holidays.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

HelpWare was selected based on personal recommendation and online reviews.

Describe the project in detail.

We work with HelpWare on a weekly basis discussing how our employees are doing. We work on team standards as well as goals. HelpWare has trained the employees in English proficiency as well as overall effective communication.

What was the team composition?

We have had contact with a USA based employee, Trenton. He manages our contracts and performs HR responsibilities. We also have a project manager, Gama, based out of Manila. Gama leads our weekly meetings and serves as our primary point of contact. We also work with Yehor who works with our team in their office in Kiev. Yehor is the onsite manager for the team. Finally, we have had the privilege of working with Alex, one of the founds of the company.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Within 8 months of hiring three new employees, we have seen our team grow exponentially in efficiency and productivity. Our Missed Phone calls went from 60% to 2% and our First Email Response Time went from 15 hours to under an hour.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow has been so smooth! You would almost think that the employees were sitting across from me in my office rather than thousands of miles away overseas. Gama and Yehor have been effective and clear communicators as well as the actual employees.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I have been extremely impressed that HelpWare is constantly looking out for our company's best interest. If we have an employee who is sick or on vacation, they offer a back up employee. HelpWare also works around USA holidays and will even have the Kiev employees work during their own holidays if it benefits us. HelpWare is customer-focused and I am so glad we are their customer. Though, it feels like a wonderful partnership.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I think communication can always be worked on. Working with a team in three different countries and three different languages can be difficult but HelpWare is doing a great job.

Feedback summary: 

Their support has improved customer service outcomes and enabled internal stakeholders to focus on other objectives while improving response rates during off-peak hours. Helpware’s resources are accountable and dedicated to performance quality.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a luxury candy company, both B2C and B2B. I'm the customer experience manager, so any customer complaints or anything customer-facing is under my jurisdiction. My team handles all customer interactions for the company, mostly through e-commerce, but occasionally for our retail stores as well.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Helpware?

We wanted extra customer service support for our busy holiday season, so we hired two reps to help with that. Because we're a candy company that focuses a lot on gifting, our busy season tends to fall around the holidays, starting in October and going through Mother's Day. We only have two internal reps, and they were having difficulty managing all of the customer requests we were receiving, over phone, email, and chat. The volume was extremely high, and customers were waiting longer than we would like them to in order to get a response. We thought that adding on the two extra reps would alleviate this issue.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to improve our response times for customers, while still providing them with exceptional service.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We had actually selected this vendor prior to when I started this role, but I believe the price was one of the biggest factors. We also wanted a company that would have a thorough but speedy onboarding process, in order to quickly prepare for the upcoming holiday season. We hadn't used a company like them in the past, but the co-founder of the company (who was overseeing the customer experience team at the time), as well as the finance team,  were involved in the selection process, in addition to the CX manager at the time.

Describe the project in detail.

We originally had two CX reps from Helpware, but our volume of requests greatly decreased after the major holidays, so we then dropped down to one CX rep. These reps originally had a set schedule that was the same every week, but we decided to change their schedule based on volumes around smaller holidays and weekends. Every week could be a bit different, and Helpware has been great at ensuring we got the flexibility we needed. As far as training, the CX team on my side worked with the Helpware team to develop a comprehensive training guide that they could distribute to their reps. We're billed on a monthly basis.

What was the team composition?

We work with a team of three people from Helpware in addition to the CX reps themselves. There's our account manager, who's based in the US, and then there are a couple of people on the outsourced side who speak with the rep directly and manage his operations. They’ve had some personnel changes over the course of our partnership. The account manager who spoke directly with us changed a couple of months ago, and the managers on the outsourced end have also changed a couple of times.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

It's really great to have weekend and early morning coverage, which we wouldn't have if we didn't work with Helpware. Additionally, although our volumes are currently lower, knowing that we have someone monitoring our emails allows us to work on other projects or things that might come up throughout the day. Also, if someone on our in-house team is on vacation or out of the office, it's great to know that we have the option to bring an additional CX rep on for the day, so it doesn't impact response times.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We hold Skype calls twice a month that include me, the director of customer success, and the two account managers in the international office who have direct communication with the CX rep. These allow us to discuss any issues that have arisen over the past couple weeks, any new updates that they should know about, or improvements that need to be made. After the meeting, the director of customer success also sends out notes from the meeting so that we're all on the same page.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

If there is a problem, they will try their best to fix it right away. They'll also keep me updated on any improvements that need to be made, and the progress that's happening, so I know they're constantly working on fixing problems.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I would love to see any issues get resolved more quickly. For example, the speed of our CX agent is a bit slow at the moment, so I would like the improvement to happen faster, instead of over a few months.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Our company uses computer vision and machine learning to deliver advanced analytics to professional and college sports teams.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Helpware?

We need large volumes of images to be annotated accurately to train our computer vision models. This includes bounding boxes around players and labeling them based on specific instructions.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to ramp our image annotation capacity up and down quickly without impacting the rest of our business.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We considered six vendors and asked each to annotate a sample of frames. We then selected Helpware based on their accuracy and turnaround time, and their team's responsiveness and understanding of our needs.

Helpware distinguished themselves by going above and beyond to make the project go smoothly. Other vendors asked us to change our processes to match theirs, but Helpware made sure to find a process that would make it as easy for us as possible to work with them.

Describe the project in detail.

We provided thousands of images to be annotated, along with instructions. From there, Helpware adjusted its internal tools so that their team could annotate our images as efficiently and accurately as possible. The Helpware team got on a call with us to review the process and ensure the work was done according to our instructions. They implemented a solid QA process based on our feedback. The work was returned to us on time, and the team was quick to correct any issues.

What was the team composition?

I deal mainly with a customer success manager, who then manages everything on the Helpware side. They also have project managers and developers on their side helping out with this project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We've improved our models on two sports thanks to their help. One key is that they enable us to ramp our annotation capacity up and down without losing focus on our core business. The quality of their work is also key. In our business, feeding bad data into a model is worse than not feeding any data at all. They're providing high-quality images that are as good, if not better, than what we could have done in-house, without requiring us to hire any additional staff. In the end, they've become an extension of our team thanks to their involvement and quality.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We communicate by email and Slack. Their team is extremely responsive to our questions and feedback and provides updates proactively. Their customer service has made the process as easy and smooth as possible for us.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their service has been excellent. Other vendors made it hard for us to send them work, asking us to develop tools or do all of the QA for them. With Helpware, we can Slack instructions and images and we know that the team will take care of loading those into their system, adjusting the instructions to make sure they are foolproof, running some examples by us to make sure they've captured everything, and above all implementing their own QA to ensure what we receive can be fed directly into our models with minimal involvement from our team.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, we’re very satisfied.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Helpware?

We needed help with processing orders as well as answering chats, phone calls, and emails.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to increase our hours of operation and free up our in-house staff for other projects. As a small, rapidly growing company, we don't have a lot of automated processes.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We checked out a couple of companies online.

Describe the project in detail.

Helpware was able to help us with the manual processes like sending emails, working with our shipping partners, and following up with customers.

What was the team composition?

With our business model, it made more sense to have a dedicated Helpware representative rather than a pay-per-ticket model.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The Helpware team fit seamlessly with ours. The in-house team could pick up where the Helpware representative left off and vice versa.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We used Slack regularly to keep each other informed of what was happening and build working relationships. The Helpware team was included in all of our team meetings. I found that my staff treated them exactly the same as if they were sitting in the same room.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were impressed with the training and response time. They made quick, insightful decisions. This allowed us to empower them to solve customer problems immediately.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, nothing comes to mind.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the customer experience manager for Dastmalchi. We own multiple brands for beauty, wellness, and lifestyle products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Helpware?

We engaged Helpware to provide customer support services. We specifically needed help tackling a large volume of customer inquiries that was growing every week, and we lacked the resources to conduct support in-house.

What were your goals for this project?

Our lengthy response times to customer inquiries made it hard to conduct marketing initiatives on social media—our primary driver for traffic and campaign revenue. We wanted Helpware to help us handle all customer interactions on each channel in a reasonable amount of time. We needed people to learn our products, take calls, answer emails, manage social media requests and online reviews, process replacement orders and refunds, and troubleshoot products. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found Helpware through a personal recommendation from our CEO, who knew someone tied to the company.

Describe the project in detail.

Helpware started by addressing incoming requests we had. The team also built dedicated tasks within team roles to keep order for us. Their agents then took on responsibilities such as responding to our high volume of incoming support tickets via email, answering incoming calls for over five brands, and handle customer service requests from multiple channels, such as retail, wholesale, and marketplaces.

They also track and report product defects to our product development team and respond to disputes across five payment gateways to avoid chargeback fees and fight fraud. Their agents log specific actions—including refunds and updated SKUs (stock keeping units) to change orders manually—in NetSuite, ensuring data integrity in inventory and accounting. In addition, Helpware notifies the appropriate teams to update the website, product packaging, marketing materials, and other elements to preserve and benefit the customer experience.

Zendesk, Shopify integrations, NetSuite, Gorgias, Slack, and Aircall help streamline our day-to-day functions. We also interact with PayPal, Amazon Pay, Stripe, FedEx, and Shipwire to manage logistics.

What was the team composition?

We first worked with two customer service people who performed a variety of tasks to manage customer interactions and satisfaction. Once the project got underway, we added more Helpware agents to assist our efforts.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Within three months, our first reply times went down from days or weeks to mere minutes, and our total resolution times are down to just over an hour. Helpware also keeps five payment gateways from getting suspended by addressing fraud and chargeback fees. Their team handles any responsibility we throw at them. Thanks to their internal procedures, constant coaching, and overall productivity, Helpware reliably produces high-quality and detailed work.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Strong communication is a key characteristic of Helpware. In any case that lacks instructions, clear expectations, or procedures to follow, their team uses common sense and determination to deliver the best outcome possible. When an urgent problem arises that may damage our company, they alert us right away so we can take action. Otherwise, Helpware operates independently and continues to improve our positioning. We can trust them to handle our customer service side without much activity on our part.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Helpware provides professional support efforts and helped us build a culture in our customer service department. Their passion, integrity, and eagerness are infectious, and they’ve helped us build out a team with processes and roles. Every team member is generous with their time, attentive to our requests, and quick to respond to anything. They take great pride in their work.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They can keep us more accountable for responsibilities held by our side, but we’re otherwise thrilled with our collaboration.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the author of Breakthrough and the CEO of SD Media Holdings. We provide a combination of media content for entrepreneurs who want to launch, grow, or scale their company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Helpware?

I needed help with marketing coordination, and that eventually extended to social media management.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Helpware collaborated on a content strategy and style guide, and they now create and manage a content calendar. They take the content I’ve created and edit it to be more professional and match my style guide before posting it.

What is the team composition? 

They have six people on their team: an account manager, project manager, creative manager, and three content production people.

How did you come to work with Helpware?

I’d worked with Helpware’s co-founder in the past and trusted him. We started with one project and have expanded.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent over $60,000. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We partnered in October 2018, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

I had a significant increase in my followers, but even more important was that my engagement with them increased. The visual elements of my social media posts are now more consistent because of the style guide.
 
How did Helpware perform from a project management standpoint?

They have the best project management of any team I’ve ever worked with. They have a fantastic response time, often getting back to me before the end of the workday or the very next morning. We have regular meetings, often over video conference.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their project management is fantastic, and they proactively schedule meetings to keep everyone on the same page. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I used to not like that their team was global, but it gives me 24/7 coverage, which I appreciate.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Be clear about what you need and how you'll evaluate success. If you communicate clearly, you’ll start off on the right foot.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Helpware?

Our chat services are for everyone who has a question or a problem with their order, but we also build online stores for teams. We were suddenly getting an influx of chat and we wanted to make sure we responded within a certain amount of time. We were looking to outsource a vendor to help us with React and outbound chats.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They've been using Intercom, which is an online chat service, and then, we switched to Zendesk, which allows us to track tickets and have a lot more reportable data. They're also using our custom software, which is a SquadLocker platform. In addition, their design team is using Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe Lightroom to help us build online stores.

What is the team composition?

I usually work with Angelica, who is our team leader.

How did you come to work with Helpware?

Our CTO found them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in September 2016 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They're a driving factor behind our ratings. Their team members have been very understanding and easy to work with. Also, they're very flexible and accommodating. There was one team member whose level of English wasn't sufficient to work with chats, so Helpware reassigned her to a different project and gave us someone else.

How did Helpware perform from a project management standpoint?

We mostly use Slack to communicate and we haven't had any issues.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We're impressed with their empathy. They're dedicated to working with each individual customer. It's not like working with a robot that manages an overseas service center. They're targeting human beings with feelings and they're there to help our customers. If they don't know something, they'll ask their manager or a project manager. Their customer service is impeccable.  

Are there any areas they could improve?

When we were given the option to interview some of the candidates for the position, we got the videos of them telling us about themselves. Since the videos were pre-recorded, we couldn't get a real feel for their grasp of the English language. A better vetting process on their English as a second language would be helpful, but we successfully overcame the language barrier.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Ask for Angelica. She's amazing.

The call center conducts over 250 calls a day, which has led to increases in new patients and scheduled appointments. Helpware’s documentation processes are transparent, improving internal efficiency and organization. Their knowledge of the software industry is extremely valuable.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the director of marketing at MidSouth Pain Treatment Center, LLC. We’re an interventional pain management practice with six locations. My role is to attract new patients and provide superior customer service.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Helpware?

We were trying to improve our patient acquisition process. Originally, we weren’t the most efficient in managing and scheduling, so we wanted to implement a call center. Because we didn’t have that kind of internal expertise, we reached out to Helpware.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve completely handed over all processes involving new patients, including inbound calls, outbound calls, administrative tasks, and document management. We collaborated with Helpware’s training staff to ensure the team was well-equipped to handle our workflow.

They streamlined our internal operations by taking us from a largely paper-based method to a digital system. They implemented some new process maps and data collection solutions, optimizing our communication and management strategies. The team continues to support our efforts and maintain new patient relationships.

What is the team composition?

We currently have a project manager, nine call center resources headed by a team leader, two insurance verifiers, and an administrative representative.

How did you come to work with Helpware?

Our CEO and medical director found Helpware. After some exploratory calls, they were an easy choice.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in May 2018, and it’s an ongoing relationship.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We went from a decentralized system to a robust call center capable of handling over 250 calls a day. Our rate of scheduled appointments has significantly increased. The efficiency and visibility that Helpware brought to our company have changed our entire organization. We’ve extended some of their software tools and recommendations across multiple processes. The return on our investment is clear; I see this partnership lasting far into the future.

How did Helpware perform from a project management standpoint?

I can’t praise them enough. We feel like we’re their only client. The Helpware team provides daily reports for each department through Google Docs and e-mails, but we use a communication software as well. It’s a highly collaborative partnership. I feel like we’re one team.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team is very technically savvy, always looking for ways to leverage cutting-edge trends and solutions. Their team members regularly attend conferences to expand their portfolio of skills and capabilities. They consistently offer valuable suggestions and recommendations, which speaks to their impeccable customer service.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, there aren’t.

Any advice for potential customers?

Be clear with their team. If clients feel that anything is missing from the partnership or their company as a whole, bring it to Helpware’s attention. They’ll probably have a solution; if they don’t, they’ll promptly find one.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the marketing director for A4 Digital. We provide marketing services primarily for the financial sector. Our offerings include lead generation, marketing campaigns, webinars, live events, and financial training.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Helpware?

We’re spread across multiple locations in the U.S and needed to take on additional responsibilities. Our team hired Helpware to manage most of our repetitive internal processes.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Helpware supplements resources for our marketing campaigns. They handle calendar invites and webpage or email automation. The team uses our Zapier account to connect or integrate email clients with another relationship management software program. They’ve also reviewed our code and backend to refine the email follow up process.

Additionally, Helpware assists with live event registration and manages our database of over 100,000 users. The team does miscellaneous tasks and break-off projects as needed during the winter months.

What is the team composition?

I have three points of contact.

How did you come to work with Helpware?

Our owner reached out to Helpware and their team presented an overview of their services. We spoke to other candidates before moving forward with Helpware.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $30,000–$50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2017 and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We’ve experienced growth. By providing support for repetitive processes, Helpware has enabled us to focus on recruitment and program development.

How did Helpware perform from a project management standpoint?

The results are relative to our evolving partnership with Helpware. Onboarding started with webinars and then transitioned to daily screen-sharing sessions. Those remote meetings lasted about two weeks. Since that stage, the process has been surprisingly smooth. The team continues to provide quality service.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Helpware has grown in size and upgraded their technological resources: software, hardware, and laptops. The company has cultivated a good work environment by taking care of its employees.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We’re lucky to have had such a positive experience. Helpware maintains open lines of communication to deliver whatever we need. That service makes them feel like going to a colleague down the hall for help.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Clients should treat Helpware as valuable members of their team, not remote resources.
