When supporting customers: TestFairy provides a platform for focusing on specific customer problems, watching their experience on video and escalating issues with logs, metrics and an event timeline.

gett's CHALLENGEs

The Gett team operates a large customer support team to assist taxi drivers around the world with urgent problems. Taxi drivers usually contact the support team when they have a problem that needs immediate resolution (sometimes while the passenger is in the taxi).
When the Support Team faces complex problems, they also involve the R&D team whether it is iOS, Android or server experts. The Operation Team's biggest challenges are:
Quickly understanding exactly what the drivers have done on their app and what they’ve experienced and seen on screen.
Effectively escalate and hand off problems from the customer support team to R&D.
Finding the root-cause for urgent bugs and operational problems and providing fixes in a timely manner.

THE TESTFAIRY SOLUTION

Using TestFairy, Gett’s Customer Support Teams were able to dramatically reduce the time it takes to understand users complaints, by seeing videos that show exactly how taxi drivers operate their app.
The TestFairy iOS and Android SDK records videos, events, logs and device metrics. When a customer support agent had to communicate and escalate the problem to R&D, communication became painless since all the information they needed in order to understand the problem could already be easily viewed right from the TestFairy dashboard.
Having this wealth of information at their disposal, R&D teams were able to understand bugs, crashes and performance problems quickly and provide a fast response to complex operational problems in real-time, effectively making the taxi drivers happier to use the app.

To sum it all up,

By recording taxi drivers’ activity in using Gett’s app, TestFairy helped Gett’s customer support team better understand customer complaints. When complex issues required involving an R&D team, TestFairy facilitated an easy flow of critical information including videos, logs and metrics. R&D teams were then able to provide fast response to pressing production issues, in no-time.
