3. Solution

  • Channel specific digital CX surveys and engagement scenarios were created.
  • Agents were selected from a database of over 4000 mystery shopping agents to record over 300 interactions with our clients and their nearest competitor’s customer service centres.
  • A reporting suite was created to score CX at each stage of the customer journey from initial contact through to resolution
  • Opportunities were observed to streamline processes, increase speed of service and improve the customer experience
  • We worked with the client analysing their contact types and customer service processes and aligning these to their company values
  • We created bespoke standards unique to each contact channel and process along with supporting materials such as the contact centre ‘Standards Companion’
  • Accompanying the standards, we built a suite of Excel based management information reports to track and identify performance trends
  • Throughout 2015 we worked onsite supporting the rollout and day to management of the new standards including leading the initial calibration sessions
