When pigs talk: how Trillian helps New Pig provide seamless customer interactions
New Pig
Supplies & Equipment
New Pig is the number one brand that helps companies manage leaks, drips and spills to protect workers, facilities and the environment.
Since 1985, New Pig has helped over 300,000 industrial, commercial, institutional and retail facilities in more than 100 countries find better ways to keep workplace environments clean and safe. Known for their innovative solutions, the company has picked up 34 Plant Engineering Product of the Year Awards since it was founded - not too shabby for a business founded on ground-up corn cob and pantyhose, right?
The challenges they were facing
A few years back, New Pig identified a need to improve their customer support experience. In particular, they wanted a way to do live transfers of support calls in order to stop putting customers on hold. Improvements to their existing communication tools were at heart of that work. Two of the major issues they faced were:
We have 450 employees spread across the campus so it can be easy to work in silos. My biggest struggle is being able to ensure effective communication across teams while maintaining corporate alignment.

The solution
New Pig put real effort into competitive research. They wanted an Instant Messaging (IM) service that all of their employees could adapt to quickly, but didn't need anything extravagant or over-priced. We were delighted when New Pig chose to spin up the cloud-based version of Trillian - they haven't looked back since! Trillian provides New Pig with a number of useful tools to keep them up to date and on the ball when it comes to customer satisfaction. Technical Services Manager Jennifer Weyant, for one, has seen a difference:
Since adopting Trillian, we've been able to eliminate hold times between customer service and technical support, resulting in a tremendous improvement in experience for our customers and the ability to provide truly seamless customer interaction.

Trillian gives employees the tools they need to do their job successfully and the ability to stay connected with the whole team. With Trillian, New Pig's employees are able to quickly exchange information about an ongoing support call, as well as avoid email for short-form internal company discussions. They're also leveraging Trillian's powerful group chat feature in order to keep different teams connected throughout the day.
Cue the (sound of) music. Here are a few of New Pig's favorite things...
  • The ability to share information instantly during customer calls
  • No more long hold times
  • Increased user interactions
  • Knowing sensitive information is protected
  • The ability for supervisors to check on user struggles
  • The easy-to-use software!
