In the rapidly evolving landscape of modern B2B companies, real-time communication platforms like Slack have become the cornerstone for managing customer interactions. incident.io stands out as a picture-perfect example of a forward-thinking tech company that embraces real-time communication, collaboration, and personalized customer support on Slack. Until very recently, B2B companies have relied solely on email for customer support, but Incident.io recognized the need for a versatile platform that consolidates and promotes multiple forms of contact — including web chat, Slack messaging, and email. The company's primary challenge was to build scalable Slack support while effectively managing over 100 customers in real-time. With the implementation of Thena, they have transformed their support efforts into a communications powerhouse, incorporating AI and customized workflows to deliver exceptional customer support.
incident.io is a trailblazing company specializing in incident management solutions. Their unique approach involves using Slack as the primary channel for customer communication. Enterprise customers enjoy access to 1:1 Slack Connect channels, while the rest of the customer base engages through incident's Slack community. Rather than relying on a traditional ticketing system, incident.io harnesses the power of Thena as a lightweight support tool, seamlessly managing Slack-based customer requests.
incident.io encountered several challenges in the efficient management and scaling of Slack-based customer support. The diverse customer base made it increasingly complex to track requests, monitor team workloads, and make informed decisions regarding capacity planning.

This integration allowed them to categorize, prioritize, and manage customer inquiries within their existing communication platform.
