Priority Bicycles is focused on low maintenance bicycles for commuters, recreational riders and children, founded on the principles that everyone should be able to afford a great looking, high quality bicycle that won’t let them down. The company was founded in 2012 by Dave Weiner, who quit his job as a CEO of a software company to start a bicycle company. Stemming from his love for bicycles, he saw there was a need for a bike that was not overly technical, light, comfy, easy to ride, easy to maintain and affordable.
Dave describes his company as a customer-first organization. Everyone on his team, from product design to accounting, has a login to Kustomer. “We provide customer service 7 days a week, 365 days a year. To accommodate this, everyone in our company, including me, has an evening or weekend shift. This leads to everyone in the company better understanding our customer, their preferences and their issues.” Dave and his team believe this commitment to their customers helps build trust, loyalty and repeat business.
Priority Bicycles was looking for a customer management platform that was fully integrated, as they wanted the ability to bring in all of their channels of customer communication. “We wanted to have a complete view of our customer, what questions they have asked, what products they have purchased, across multiple channels.” It was not long after seeing a demo of the product and the benefits of the customer timeline that Priority Bicycles became early adopters of the Kustomer platform.
Priority Bicycles recently rolled out their Fleet Services, where they provide up to 100 bicycles for hotels, resorts, companies and campuses, and the customer timeline has been incredibly valuable as they continue to grow this side of the business. “We have all of our correspondence in one place, as well as, all the logistical follow-ups such as shipping and assembly, and then any service of maintenance questions.”
Since switching to Kustomer, the Priority Bicycles team has been able to increase customer satisfaction by reducing case handling time, all while handling more with less effort. In addition, they believe that the insights provided by the Kustomer platform help them design better products for their customers, and to quickly react to market conditions.
