News : Stanford Federal Credit Union Improves Service Levels with Fonolo Call-Backs
Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Aug 26, 2015 -- Fonolo, the company that improves the call center experience by replacing hold time with a call-back, announced that Stanford Federal Credit Union has implemented its call-back solution and recent findings indicate an improvement in service levels, abandon rates, and the overall call center experience.
By adding Fonolo’s In-Call Rescue solution to its call center, members can now choose to "press 1 to receive a call-back" rather than wait on hold, without losing their place in line. When their turn arrives, the member's phone will ring and there will be a live agent on the line.
"Having a call-back solution is an essential feature for any contact center and becomes critical for a poor performing center," said Mark Edelman, Vice President Digital Member Services, Stanford Federal Credit Union. "A properly programmed call-back feature will mitigate long queue time and turn the negative of waiting on hold into the positive of receiving a call-back. In addition to that, it takes pressure off the agents and our members really enjoy the experience. With Fonolo’s call-back solution we saw a reduction in our abandon rate, an increase in member satisfaction and an upsurge in agent morale."
"We’re extremely happy to be a part of Stanford FCU’s customer experience strategy," said Shai Berger, CEO, Fonolo. "Our mission at Fonolo is to make it easy for call centers to add features like call-backs, virtual queuing and visual IVR with minimal effort. These extraordinary results illustrate that contact centers immediately benefit from a cloud-based approach."
