SVP says it accounts for approximately one out of every three sewing machines sold globally.
Consumer sewing machine company SVP Worldwide is refining its customer service capabilities to meet today’s new consumer demand.
The company, which includes such brands as Singer, Husqvarna Viking, and PFAFF in its portfolio, has upgraded its point-of-sale and CRM platforms to help navigate its pandemic-relates sales surge and better connect with in-store shoppers. SVP partners with Oracle Retail for its Xstore Point-of-Service technology, enabling associates in its 171 stores to use their mobile devices to step away from a fixed cash register to assist consumers.
The upgrades are helping the company both level-up its CX skills and amplify marketing efforts for more personalized experiences, including with its gift cards and promotions for new and existing loyalty program members.
“Our brand's commitment is to inspire and delight our creative customers around the world,” said Kevin Blanchard, CIO at SVP Worldwide. “By bringing agility to the customer experience, we can deliver a more fulfilling shopping experience in our stores. From an operational point of view, this project allows us to incorporate the needs of our store associates while lowering support and hardware costs.”
SVP Worldwide, which operates through SVP-Singer Holdings, Inc. and its affiliates, says it accounts for approximately one out of every three sewing machines sold globally.
Whether its languishing for hours before speaking with an agent or navigating a confusing labyrinth of options, one need not be in the industry to understand the detriment of a poor customer service experience.
