We’re now offering 24/7 premium support for all our paid subscribers!
From all the groundbreaking features that we added to NitroPack throughout the years, this one feels truly special because it’s the end result of more than 12 months of hard work.
Being able to assist you 24/7 is something we worked on for so long, and the fact that it’s now true seems almost unreal.
But that wasn’t always the case.
Let’s see how we got here.
Coming out of our Black Friday campaign in 2020, we experienced tremendous growth in the number of active websites and NitroPack users.
In the next six months, the number of active websites that NitroPack optimizes grew from more than 16K in November 2020 to more than 66K in May 2021.
We found ourselves in a position where our support department was a team of 7, and we simply couldn’t handle all the tickets in the fastest manner.
Unsurprisingly, that led to our TrustPilot rating going down to 2.9 at one point:
And the main reason for that was our slow response times:
Before moving on, there is something vital that we believe is worth mentioning.
There aren’t enough words to describe how grateful we are for the team of people that stayed behind NitroPack in those challenging times. They were and still are the backbone of our company, and thanks to them, we were able to grow and build our support team to what it is today.
Last but not least, we appreciate all the customers that kept supporting NitroPack. The 24/7 support coverage is for you.
We knew that everything would come into place once we grew our support team.
And that’s what we did.
By the end of 2021, we managed to grow the number of NitroPack support specialists by 3.5 times.
From 7 people in May 2021, the support team grew to 20 people in December 2021. And it never stopped growing.
Our customers felt the expansion immediately:
In 12 months, we managed to improve our TrustPilot rating from average to excellent:
If we need to transform the positive feedback and excellent rating into real numbers, the work of our support team will look like that:
Truly spectacular improvements!
And if there is one person that could summarize the evolution of our support team, our Head of Support is the perfect man to do it:
It would have been easy for us to get complacent with all the results we achieved in 2021.
We could have continued growing our team, getting positive feedback, and working on achieving the perfect TrustPilot rating.
We’re still aiming for all of these things. Make no mistake about it.
But during our annual planning at the beginning of 2022, one question was bothering us - how can we further improve our support service to bring even more value to our customers?
24/7 support coverage!
Hundreds of thousands of people worldwide trust NitroPack with their sites’ performance. To ensure that we are always there for them, we had to step up our game and include 24/7 coverage for all our paid plans.
It’s safe to say that our support service has come a long way. There have been a lot of ups and downs throughout the years, but when your sole mission is to serve your customers in the best way possible, things eventually fall into place.
But we’re definitely not stopping here.
NitroPack is an ever-evolving service, and we got a lot of other enhancements that are waiting to be announced.
So stay tuned!
And if you have ever wondered whether now is the right time to upgrade to a paid plan, take the 24/7 support coverage as a sign!
