In Customer Support, Every Minute Matters

This article first appeared on KMWorld (gated).  

Recently, we spoke with a head of customer service at a US-based manufacturing company. He relayed how he periodically reviews recordings of support calls, to understand where coaching is needed or improvements can be made in the process. He shared how incredibly frustrated he was that in most cases, 80% of the call time is actually silence. Silence, while the agent searches for the right answer to solve the problem, and the customer waits.

How AI-Powered Search Drives Better Customer Support

Most customers don’t like calling customer support. It takes too long to get the answers they want, and they walk away feeling exasperated. Many organizations find themselves frustrated with their customer support experience as well. They know they need to provide a better, seamless experience for their customers, but they are challenged with information silos, an incomplete view of the customer, and a support team that has to hunt and peck to find the right information.

These challenges are real, and it’s critical to resolve them and improve the support experience. If you don’t manage your customer experience right, customers will leave. And that’s something you can’t afford to see happen. What’s the answer?
