Head of Customer Success

30 August 2023

At Trigo, we firmly believe that automation isn’t merely a trend; it’s the new cornerstone of the future of retail. While many progressive retailers have embraced the automation vision, some remain hesitant, often due to concerns regarding the logistical complexities involved in retrofitting a physical store and integrating computer vision-powered automation and other cutting-edge technologies.

As Trigo’s Head of Customer Success, I work closely with our retail partners to plan and implement store retrofits and retail tech installations. In this blog, I’ll shed light on our specialized retrofitting process, which transforms traditional brick-and-mortar stores into sleek, efficient automated smart stores.

Onboarding: Transparency, Communication, and Alignment

1. Kickoff: Building a Partnership 

Duration: several weeks.

Once the contract is signed, our collaboration truly begins. At this stage, we’ll arrange a kickoff meeting that brings together our dedicated R&D, integration, and customer experience teams with your R&D, product, and project teams. We’ll delve into the nitty-gritty of your store’s specifics, working together to sketch out your ideal customer journey and the features that will enhance it. This is where creativity flourishes, and our expertise shines.

The operative word is partnership. We approach our clients not just as customers but as partners, focusing on flexibility and a personalized experience. Our solution, encompassing both hardware and software, molds to your existing setup.

2. Installation: efficient and disruption-free

Duration: 3 weeks

The actual installation process of our computer vision solution, including ceiling cameras and smart shelves, is designed to weave around your store’s regular hours. We prioritize minimal disruption, leveraging our trusted third-party contractors or collaborating with your local team.

Beyond just installing, we impart our insights and best practices that have been honed across diverse projects. We then take the time to train your in-store staff, and shadow them to ensure that they are comfortable working with the system. We continue to provide remote support throughout our partnership.

3. Go live: comprehensive guidance and support

Duration: 3 Weeks of QA and Beta

As the store transitions to its new automated reality, we accompany you every step of the way. From guiding you through our support process to offering full remote troubleshooting, we ensure that the handover is smooth and void of any lingering issues.

4. Continued partnership: constant support and collaboration

Even when the store is fully operational, our relationship doesn’t end. Weekly production meetings and an accessible ticketing platform guarantee consistent communication and prompt resolution of any challenges. We provide dashboards including your preferred metrics for you to continuously monitor the performance of the system.
