News : Bytes Document Solutions Beefs Up Service Delivery with Astea
Johannesburg, South Africa, Sept 1, 2015 -- Word of mouth carries enormous weight when it comes to the reputation of your business products and services. Thanks to social media, the voice of the customer is louder than ever, making excellent customer service a critical success factor for any business.
That's why Bytes Document Solutions (BDS), a Xerox distributor, has partnered with service life cycle management and mobile workforce solutions company Astea International. The move is set to drive higher levels of BDS customer satisfaction with faster response times and proactive communication, the goal being to create consistent and highly personalised experiences at every customer relationship touch point.
"It's important to invest in improving customer service and effective tools to help you stay on top of managing your customer experience," says Anton van den Berg, Bytes Document Solutions divisional director of services. "This will ensure that your customers are getting good service from your staff, all of the time. In addition, with some areas of office automation technology becoming commoditised, BDS distinguishes itself in the market through service excellence, hence the investment in Astea."
"In addition to enhancing our service to Xerox customers, we are also seeing a positive impact on BDS's profitability as a result of greatly enhanced productivity on the part of our technicians," says Van den Berg. "Positive change is being felt throughout the organisation, with people buying in to better ways of doing things. We're all excited about the future of the company."
