Finger on the “Pulse” of Your Customers

The use of wearables—miniature electronic devices that are worn on your person—has become increasingly popular, interweaving technology into everyday life like never before. One popular type of wearable is a bracelet used for monitoring fitness activities and overall health by tracking heart rate, blood pressure, sleep time, steps taken, etc. Reading about such a device struck a chord with me recently, not just as an interesting health and fitness tool, but because the monitoring and feedback provided to the individual from the wearable device is much like the all-important and comprehensive customer insights provided to an organization by its customer experience team.

Like the fitness wearables, the customer experience program gets the organization moving! Establishing a goal and reporting progress toward that goal helps the organization focus on customer centricity. For most organizations, this is a new and different way to do business. Being customer-centric means you make daily decisions that make it easier for customers to do business with you—not the other way around.

Back Office WFO in Action: Southern State Department of Criminal Justice

Posted by Mary Lou Joseph

Apr 22, 2014 1:48:37 PM

The Information Technology department of a large, southern state Department of Criminal Justice had one primary goal: to improve the performance of their homegrown parole administration system (PAS). Core to the operations of the agency’s parole division, PAS helps to more effectively manage the selection of offenders for parole, the supervision of offenders released on parole, and the revocation of parole for offenders violating the conditions of their release.

Each day, between 8,000 and 10,000 people log in to PAS to seamlessly access, review, and share vital offender information and data. Given its complexity and the sheer volume of data, the system was experiencing some performance issues. The IT department was receiving complaints from users about latency and system slowness. They needed a way to identify and assess these and, most importantly, pinpoint the root causes.

What’s Good for Your Business? A Problem Handled Well

First contact resolution (FCR) is often referred to as the “holy grail” metric for contact centers, from which flows the goodness of reduced contact volume, improved customer loyalty and a greater share of the customer wallet. So, it’s not surprising that most contact centers attempt to rigorously and flawlessly execute plans that drive to FCR. However, no company can ever achieve absolute perfection without turning to complete automation or transforming their employees into automatons.

Companies employ people, and from time to time those people will make mistakes. So, it’s equally important that companies have a strong service recovery posture. In fact, building a strong service recovery posture should not be seen as planning for failure or a burdened cost to bear, but rather an opportunity for the business to build a better, long-lasting relationship with the customer.

Imagine_If_You_Could_Understand_blog_image_to_useHow many applications do your employees use on any given day—five, ten, twenty? How many are critical to executing their work, and how many are ancillary or not even work-related?
