A flexible, configurable and scalable solution was a key differentiator in trivago’s decision to select Talkdesk Enterprise Cloud Contact Center to support its rapidly growing team. trivago needed a single system to improve workflow, integrate with its existing CRM and increase agent efficiency. Talkdesk Intelligent Routing, infused with artificial intelligence (AI) through Talkdesk iQ, will streamline incoming call flow and empower trivago contact center administrators to easily customize inbound routing. Calls are assigned to pre-set language groups, offering callers the option to wait for an agent in their preferred language, receive a call-back, or switch to a different language.

With Talkdesk for Salesforce providing peace of mind that its extensive customer database remained accessible, Trivago agents will now have immediate access to caller information through automatic screen pops, reducing average handle time, caller wait time and improving overall efficiency.

“High-growth companies like trivago Hotel Relations recognize the need for a cloud contact center solution that can scale and innovate at a pace that will drive them forward, rather than slowing them down,” said Tiago Paiva, chief executive officer, Talkdesk. “We are pleased to support trivago’s growing customer service and sales organization and look forward to helping it differentiate through superior customer experience.”
