How eWAY Slashed Support Cases in Half — and Boosted Customer Satisfaction


Australian company eWAY provides a safe, reliable, frictionless online payment gateway to help businesses worldwide grow and thrive. Built on a commitment to personal service and support, eWAY now handles a rapidly growing market share of online payments in Australia. With such enormous growth, eWAY needed service capabilities that stayed ahead of the growing customer base’s expectations — that means providing self-service options available at any time and with any device.

With two separate systems for customer care and service and no easy way for customers to find answers to their questions online, eWAY’s support desk was backed up with emails and phone calls. The company needed a solution for customers to be able to help themselves, and each other, find answers to their simpler questions, that way agents could be free to tackle the more complex cases.

With Community Builder and Templates from Community Cloud, eWAY created a completely customized and mobile-optimized community, no coding or IT required, in just four days. In addition to a secure, reliable, and scalable online community, eWAY also easily included third-party or custom apps that are helpful to its customers.

Now eWAY’s customers can find answers to their questions quickly and easily and eWAY’s support staff is more attuned to its customers than ever, so the team can deliver targeted help to those who need it. Within one day after deploying the customer community, eWAY’s average support cases were reduced by 50% and the average response times for customer inquiries was reduced by over 75%.
