Summary

Retailers and brands must deliver experiences that are efficient, effective, and effortless for the customer. This piece is part of a series showcasing best-in-class examples of conversational interfaces; it focuses on Urban Outfitters’ customer service features. According to the Forrester Analytics Consumer Technographics® US Retail Recontact Survey, 2020, 42% of US online adults said it was important for retailers to offer live online chat on their website, up from 27% in 2019. Urban Outfitters agents can track orders via chat if the customer provides either the tracking number or an email address linked to the order. Once they confirm the order, the agent provides real-time updates of the package’s last location and an estimated delivery date.
