Why is it difficult for telecom providers to provide a better customer care experience?
Communication service providers (CSPs) often face a very high call center employee turnover rate, up to 44% in some cases. At the same time, call volumes are constantly increasing. New services and use cases increase call complexity, while customers want to use their channels of choice. In addition, manual processes and the lack of actionable insights make the task harder for customer service representatives (CSRs) than it should be. The result: low NPS, high churn and high OPEX. Sounds familiar? You are not alone.
A recent survey identified the following top 5 issues affecting the performance of customer contact staff:
- CSRs lack an integrated desktop to perform tasks across channels (cited by 38% of respondents)
- Not automating enough processes/interactions (33%)
- CSRs cannot easily receive context about customers prior to or during a call (33%)
- CSRs lack a 360-degree view of customers (32%)
- CSRs spend too much time on simple/unimportant work (32%)
How can I improve telecom customer care?
Expand the mobile experience
Manage the growing complexity of the mobile ecosystem (including Fixed Wireless Access) and simplify the related customer service processes. Mobile care use cases ensure customers can resolve service issues and consume new offers through a single unified mobile application
Take advantage of proactive care
Use analytics from numerous external sources and trigger workflows to correct network connectivity, device configuration, service performance and QoS issues before customers even notice them.
Boost assisted care
Combining this consolidated data with standardized workflows can help CSRs and customers resolve problems quickly and efficiently. Workflows are reusable across channels, reducing customer and agent effort, and improving first call resolution metrics.
Promote telecom self-care
Let your customers take charge of the service experience. Offer self-service applications that allow them to resolve issues and manage services on their own terms – without contacting the help desk.
Optimize the home experience
The home has become an extension of the network, offering new ways to support and engage customers, but also increasing the possibility of Wi-Fi issues that result in many service calls. Home care use cases provide self-care clients, applications and portals that make it easy for end users to access, consume and get support for their services from their home-connected devices.
Simplify field operations
Reduce downtime and strengthen customer relationships with tools that empower field technicians to resolve issues quickly and cost effectively. Equip them with capabilities for remote service, automation, mobility, consolidation and collaboration.
