Abtran

"From an operational aspect the challenges we face as an organisation are the following
1) Measuring end to end customer and client satisfaction across all channels. We find that measuring CSAT by voice and email is relatively straight forward but when it comes to other media supported in our centre such as fax, webmail and SMS this is where we find it most challenging.
2) Measuring FCR across all channels is also quite a challenge for our business. In measring FCR we have a policy of using two measurements usually by evaluating a contact between our Advisor and customer and also by measuring the Voice of the Customer. This is a difficult metric to accurately measure across SMS, fax, Voicemail etc.
3) Measuring service level and response times for all contact types
4) Monitoring all contact types to ensure quality and consistency
Organisational Challenges are as follows:
1. Technology implementation/integration issues
2. Securing budget for multichannel needs"

"Workforce management to ensure resources are available to answer different channels types."

 
Sravana Kumar
Project Manager
Pepper Technologies
Singapore

"Infrastructure - whatever channel you use, the important factor is to build a better and error free platform.

Intensive testing is required before installation to avoid any disaster that in turn brings customer service level down. With the pace and competitive environment, it is necessary to improve the infrastructure and evolve to perform better.

Secondly, training to use the platform is another biggest challenge, mass training will help the work force understand the core usage and benefits of the platform, but for better customer service and ROI, it requires a deeper understanding of the platform that is used by the workforce. Usually the learning takes a while (steep learning curve Vs Experience curve). As the competition is high and customer expectations are going up, it is important that specialised training needs to be provided to the workforce, the three phase approach. 1. Mass training, 2. Specialised training in smaller batches 3. Identify under performers and training them in batches."
