ADA manages flagship stores of blue chip brands such as Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Laneige, among others, and this partnership has helped ADA manage high traffic of messages in various channels while ensuring the customer experience journey is uniform across the brands’ products and markets in SEA.

Now, the average response time across all online stores managed by ADA has decreased by 5 times while the productivity of customer service has increased by 30%, enabling us to focus more on improving our service to customers to drive business,” said Anurag Gupta, Chief Operating Officer of ADA.
“Omcom’s mission is to help businesses chat, connect and sell across channels from one application.
