GNC is ensuring it can stay up to date with the latest developments in customer contact center technology.
The vitamins and supplements retailer is utilizing the cloud-based UJet Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) platform as the backbone of its omnichannel, customer service operations. As a result, GNC hopes to leverage the heightened flexibility of the UJet cloud platform to more easily implement new, innovative customer service solutions and integrate with best-of-breed customer experience tools.
GNC intends to have its customer contact center platform grow along with the company, supported by best-of-breed product integrations and cloud flexibility. In addition, UJet customer contact center technology is supported by the vendor’s CX Intercloud cloud-to-cloud failover solution to help ensure availability of customer support services.
“We are focused on a consumer-first mentality with our business centered on our customers and what they need to achieve health and wellness goals,” said Scott Saeger, CIO, GNC. “Supporting our customers and distribution partners with a superior level of customer service is what sets GNC apart in a highly dynamic environment. It’s vital to our success and we’re confident UJet will help us to sustain and strengthen our connection to our consumers.”
“Today’s forward-thinking enterprise organizations are making customer experience a competitive advantage with UJet, future-proofing their contact centers to keep pace with customer demand and product development,” said Vasili Triant, COO, UJet. “The agility of UJet’s cloud contact center allows companies to remain ahead of customer service trends and pursue an aggressive growth and expansion strategy through a rapid pace of product innovation.”
