Podorozhnyk uses Viber Rich Business Messaging as an entire infrastructure to interact with customers across various points in the customer journey:

“People are used to talking on messengers because it’s so quick and easy. So, why not use them to place orders, too? Out here, everyone has Rakuten Viber and it’s usually on the phone's home screen, which is the most expensive digital real estate today. So, with this set-up, you can place an order in just a few clicks — and we claim a prime spot on our customers’ phone screens. Rakuten Viber has become an essential, core part of our sales infrastructure. Its solutions create an entire ecosystem for customer interactions: from promotions and sales to feedback collection and loyalty program.”
