How Interakt Enabled OYO to Leverage WhatsApp for Customer Service

Opening its doors in 2013, OYO Hotels & Homes is the world’s third-largest chain of hotels, homes, managed living and workspaces. The portfolio combines fully operated real estate comprising more than 23,000 hotels and 46,000 vacation homes. Now with Leisure Group joining the chain, OYO can be found in more than 800 cities in 80+ countries, including the U.S., China, Europe, U.K., India, Malaysia, Middle East, Indonesia, Philippines, and Japan.


OYO wanted to offer customer support over WhatsApp, by enabling their Guest Experience Managers to respond to user queries on the messaging platform.

The key objectives of the solution included:

• Reduce support costs by deflecting call center traffic.

• Enable support staff to manage customer interactions at scale.

• Swiftly resolve customer queries over WhatsApp.


Interakt’s proprietary Customer Care platform was seamlessly integrated with OYO’s WhatsApp Business account, which helped them:

 Handle multiple conversations simultaneously and provide a swift resolution to customer issues.

 Measure the productivity and efficiency of individual support agents.

 Gather data about the top reasons for customers to seek support.
