CHALLENGE

Vibhuti Vazirani, the founder, was focusing on sustainable business practices —coupled with her eclectic educational background— she has made Zavi an important name in the fast fashion industry. Zavi is a brand with a vision that’s hard to ignore. And while interest in the brand has remained high, sales via their website didn’t adequately reflect that fact.

Zavi’s vision is eye-catching, especially in today’s climate of responsible consumerism. But attracting customers and converting customers are two very different things. From the company’s earliest days, traffic to their e-commerce storefront was steady. There was a problem, however. Customers would come to Zavi’s landing page, but that was as far as they would make it. More often than not, they’d drop off the site before browsing further. What was the reason for this disconnect?

The founder thought she had her bases covered. She had hired a small team of live customer service representatives who could help engage customers using suggestive selling techniques to recommend products. Demand was high, as she soon learned. Sky-high. The sales associates were quickly getting overwhelmed by a constant stream of questions regarding Zavi’s unique, signature products. It was impossible to handle all customer inquiries. That is until Rep got involved.
