Influx – Building the world’s largest remote-first CX team for businesses set to scale and gear up for growth


Customer service is constantly evolving, with today’s customers expecting more from businesses than ever before. Poor experiences are amplified in ways that didn’t exist before and positive experiences can foster longtime customers. As a result of this shift, companies need to pay close attention to their support needs, which can be achieved through the Support as a Service model. This refers to support operations that focus on customer service and give companies access to 24/7 global coverage, either per response or on a month-to-month basis. Support as a Service allows for high-quality, consistent coverage with faster response times. This means the team conquers ticket backlogs, handles high support ticket volumes, and keeps email inbox levels down. Hiring an external customer service team may seem like a risk, but adding an extra layer of support alleviates pressure on the internal team and allows them to focus on things like support processes, product improvements, and future planning. Not to mention, hiring and managing people requires a lot of time and resources.

Influx is the global leader in ‘Support as a Service,’ elastic, pay-as-you-go support teams. Companies like Blenders Eyewear, ClassPass, Biteable and Sendle work with Influx to make their support teams fast, flexible and scalable. Influx provides consistent, high quality customer service in a simple month to month format. Brands and tech companies work with Influx to make their support teams fast and flexible, while maintaining standards.
