BERLIN/MOSCOW, GERMANY – February 4th, 2014 – The Russian fashion store Lamoda (www.lamoda.ru) from the world’s largest internet incubator, Rocket Internet, now relies on Zendesk, the leading provider of cloud software for better customer service. Up to 250 Lamoda service agents will work with Zendesk simultaneously and Zendesk will be fully integrated with Lamodas internal CRM System.
Lamoda was founded in 2011 by Rocket Internet as the Russian equivalent of their successful European fashion retailer Zalando. Lamoda currently sells more than one million products from 900 brands and is visited by one million unique users, generating 20 million page views per month. The website currently covers Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan with plans to expand into neighbouring markets such as Azerbaijan and Belarus.
We have ambitious goals for the Russian market and beyond, says Dominik Picker, Managing Director of Lamoda. We certainly do not want to fall behind in terms of our customer service. The flexible solution Zendesk offers is ideal to satisfy the needs of our customers, as well as scale with our intended future growth.
The growth Lamoda has achieved since launching only two years ago is very impressive, says Steffen Teske Director Central & Eastern Europe, who is also responsible for the Russian market at Zendesk. Lamoda covers an extremely large market which means significant numbers of customer service tickets. These tickets need to be handled and processed flexibly and efficiently. We are very proud that Lamoda have put their trust in Zendesk to enable their customer service team to take on this challenge.
