In today’s competitive field, providing best possible customer experience has to be a priority. Rising expectations put pressure on contact centre agents.
Customers are used to having instant information on their phone, seamlessly moving between text, email, social media, the net, oh and yes phone calls!
How can the agents keep up?
Business is losing the technology race. While customers thumb their iPhones and Android devices, nearly two-thirds of Contact Center agents still have to access 4, 5 or 6 different systems, using multiple screens and logins, to manage customer interactions. New channels such as email, web chat, text messages and social media have often been bolted onto older applications like telephony, CRM, ERP and knowledge management, performance dashboards and analysis.
Having to swap between all these systems leads agents to make mistakes, increases average handling times, produces data errors and reduces satisfaction for both agents and customers. Research shows that very satisfied agents, with better tools and lower stress, meet important customer-related metrics such as CSat, net promoter and customer effort scores twice as well as less satisfied agents.
Improving customer satisfaction means improving the way interactions are handled, and a key part of that is ensuring agents have all the information they require to meet customer expectations. Agent Desktop can help.
