Pain Points

Klarna retains a strong commitment to innovation and prioritizes customer service excellence. With an app that features a high degree of personalization, customer service representatives face many complex enquiries. The individual app experience varies by user and market, so the ability to share the customer view is a potential game changer for support agents.

Regulatory compliance is a major factor within the fintech industry. With strict data privacy regulations in place, customer support agents cannot have access to personal information, such as PIN codes and payment card details, nor data that sits outside the Klarna app.

“We are always looking to explore innovative ways to resolve customer issues better, especially for more complex enquiries”, says Quynh Nguyen, Product Manager, Agent Tooling, Customer Service for Klarna. “One of the challenges our support teams face is the evolving nature of our app, it is personalized to the individual and has new updates released every month. This makes training via traditional methods very difficult”.

A shared experience

The complex nature of escalated customer support engagements led Klarna to explore co-browsing as a solution. “We wanted to explore new options”, explains Nguyen. “We wanted to help solve complex enquiries quicker, but we also wanted to see how we could increase agent’s app knowledge at the same time. Screen-sharing solutions seemed the perfect fit. Co-browsing was seen as the best way to enhance the current support experience and demonstrate to our customers that we care about them by offering creative solutions”.

Evaluation criteria

With its sights set on co-browsing as a means to elevate the customer experience, Klarna established a clear set of evaluation criteria. The two most important factors were native support for mobile apps and compliance with data privacy requirements.

Athanasios Chatzoglou, Director of Customer Service at Klarna, explains further. “Our app is available on both iOS and Android platforms, so we were looking for a vendor with a solution that was stable in Native, iOS and Android, not just web”. 

“Second, but no less important, was data privacy. Our app contains personal information that mustn’t be accessible to our support agents. Any information that is held outside Klarna, like personal apps or data on customers’ phones is also prohibited”.

Why Cobrowse?

“We chose Cobrowse because it met both our platform and privacy requirements”, says Nguyen. “Support for web and mobile apps was essential, and this wasn’t something other vendors were able to deliver. The Cobrowse team also provides us with a solution where everything in-app can be redacted by default, leaving us to un-redact non-sensitive information. This option is important for us to prevent leaking sensitive data accidentally. Also, Cobrowse only allows agents to access the Klarna app, so if a customer has a pop-up notification, or accesses another app, it won’t be visible to our agents”.

The Cobrowse terraform provides a turnkey solution that enables Klarna to self-host all data and systems related to the Cobrowse software. Leveraging Klarna’s existing regional cloud infrastructure across the USA, EMEA, and APAC, guarantees compliance with existing security and privacy mechanisms, and enables streamlined DevOps processes. 

The development expertise that goes into Cobrowse makes it the most comprehensive and configurable co-browsing solution available. For Klarna, the out-of-the-box integration with Freshdesk was an advantage. However, Cobrowse was also configured to work with the company’s custom-built in-house systems. This flexibility is a key differentiator and contributes to both ease of use and deployment.

Tangible results

Klarna provides support to customers across the world, with Cobrowse used to enhance telephone engagements. “Screen Sharing has transformed the way our Customer Service agents interact with our valued customers” says Chatzoglou. “With this innovative tool, our agents can now co-navigate the Klarna app alongside customers in real-time, empowering us to resolve issues swiftly and effectively”.

Telephone support cases with screen sharing have an average 15% higher resolution rate than others and Klarna has found Cobrowse to be invaluable when it comes to resolving complex support engagements. “It [Cobrowse] is very beneficial when it comes to supporting more complex cases”, says Nguyen. “Agents and customers can literally be on the same page, instantly. Cobrowse also provides better support for customers who are new to the app, or less tech-savvy”.

“In the fintech market, trust is important”, says Nguyen. “Our customers trust us, and they also trust the tools we use. We ask for consent to use co-browsing and we’ve updated our terms and conditions, but we’ve had an excellent response from customers”.

“In a customer feedback survey, 90% of respondents were satisfied with the use of co-browsing during their call.”

Commenting on this feedback, Nguyen explains how the success of Cobrowse has led to a change in the way they support customers. “Not only are we resolving issues faster, but our customers who have experienced Cobrowse are consistently expressing high levels of satisfaction with the service. With these impressive results, we’ve decided to expand the use of co-browsing to become the default option for both telephone and chat channels. We want to use Cobrowse for less complex cases as well, as we believe it will help us to educate customers on the use of the app and enable them to self-service going forward”.

Session recording has also added value to the quality assurance and audit processes, according to Nguyen. “Session recordings make it easy for our QA team, as well as for debugging. For example, if any app components are over-redacted, we can fix it on review”.

Partnering for success

“Cobrowse has proven successful in our main market, in the US, and we will be increasing its use across other territories going forward, explains Chatzoglou. “About 10% of our agents use Cobrowse globally, which equates to around 5,000 sessions a week. Working with Cobrowse has been very good. The engineers have been very responsive, and we’ve enjoyed working with the team so far”.

Before introducing Cobrowse, Klarna was experiencing a backlog of support tickets. While Cobrowse is not being used to address legacy tickets, it has helped the business improve its first-contact resolution rate for new engagements and its overall customer satisfaction rates, allowing the support agents time to tackle the backlog using conventional methods”.

This technology has proven invaluable for tackling complex cases, assisting new customers, and supporting those who may be less tech-savvy. Cobrowse's solution seamlessly integrates with our app's architecture, offering ease of implementation and customization tailored to our unique needs.
