For companies that sell products or services that require technical support, the support customers receive might be the only personal experience they can use to gauge their satisfaction with an organization. Since, for many of these organizations, customer satisfaction directly affects revenue, measuring customers’ satisfaction with the service experience and the services provided is extremely important as it enables these organizations to manage and improve the customer experience. This HDI Research Corner report reveals the findings from 264 support organizations that provide technical support for the services or products used by customers.
The customer service contact center thrives on performance metrics. These metrics provide operational insight into the efficiency of the customer service process, including how effectively customer service representatives are performing their duties — as well as how well customers are being served. Many performance metrics are as old as the contact center industry itself and are still in widespread use today.
The purpose of this paper is not to disparage existing contact center performance metrics or to suggest that these metrics no longer matter. The authors acknowledge that the metrics that matter to the reader’s contact center are the ones that make sense in that particular situation. Rather, this paper explores some of the emerging metrics that specifically acknowledge and address the changing attitudes, objectives and definition of the contemporary contact center.
Cloud communications provide myriad benefits for organizations, including speed of deployment, the ability to future-proof infrastructure and applications, business continuity, predictable monthly payments, and many more. Most organizations turn to the cloud in order to cost-effectively access enhanced capabilities while eliminating the complexity of deploying and managing premises-based solutions. Cloud-based contact center solutions offer additional benefits, notably the ease of adding or removing agents as needed based on fluctuating or seasonal traffic, ease of deploying remote or at-home agents, and ease of adding multi-channel services.
Contact centers have long played a vital role in the insurance industry. Prospects and customers use them to get product information and quotes and then submit applications. Insurance agents and advisors rely on contact centers to tap into expertise and handle business and technical issues. Policyholders and members make inquiries or changes to their policies, or conduct financial transactions. Claimants call in to report accidents and check on the status of their claims. The list could go on, but the meaning is clear. Contact centers are major contributors to many key parts of the insurance business, especially the parts that require direct interaction with customers or agents. As a result, contact centers now play a critical role in an insurer’s journey toward becoming more customer-centric.
