Getting started with Ultimate

When Pockit first reached out to us in 2021, they had just moved from London to Newcastle and recruited an entirely new team customer support team. The team's first task? Tackling a 17,000 email backlog — the fallout from a forced two-month hiatus on all transactions due to complications with a third-party supplier.

Pockit chose Ultimate based on its unparalleled onboarding process and proven track record of integrating with Zendesk Support. Throughout the onboarding process, Ultimate’s Customer Success team ran training sessions, provided updates, and regular check-ins.

“Getting started with Ultimate was a breeze! The customer success manager went the extra mile to ensure that our experience from onboarding to going live was seamless.”

AI use case spotlight: driving down handling times

  • Because of issues with a third-party provider, Pockit had accumulated a massive ticket backlog of 17,000 emails. This was affecting handling and resolution times and impacting CX.

  • With Ultimate's ticket automation solution taking care of repetitive incoming inquiries, Pockit was able to clear 95% of this backlog in just 2 months.

  • Average handle time (AHT) dropped from several weeks to under 48 hours — and Pockit's support team are now automating 12,000 emails each month using 37 intents.

The success story
