Wat de agent kan, mag en weet – interview over #Contact

Zo’n negen jaar na verschijning van ‘De P-factor in Customer Contact’ schreef Erik Bouwer opnieuw een boek over klantcontact. Om mensen die aan de zijlijn staan van een contactcenter inzicht te geven in het verschijnsel. Want omringende organisatieafdelingen hebben een beperkte kennis van de business impact van een contactcenter en de principes die er gelden, stelt hij. En de contactcenters zelf, hoe brengen die het er vanaf? Constateert hij grote veranderingen op het gebied van de People-factor? Een blik op het heden is gelijk een koude douche, terwijl een warm bad voor het grijpen ligt.

Inside the mind of your customers

IntelliResponse recently conducted a Google consumer survey where we asked 1000 consumers to share what they really think about the service they received from the businesses they deal with. Some of the results may sound surprising, but all of them validate the emergence of a customer-led shift toward self-service in digital channels. In this report we take you on a tour through the survey results of the 7 questions. We’re sharing the unfiltered questions and answers straight from the survey, so you can see for yourself exactly how customers expect their relationship with your company to unfold.

The new digital ecosystem reality: Innovation’s next frontier is in customer service

As customer expectations evolve, customer service has emerged as the next critical differentiator. Forwardthinking companies
understand that the future of customer service is proactive, integrated and omnipresent. In their quest to improve the customer experience, many organizations have overlooked a key element: customer support. Traditional support is episodic and event-driven, with the onus on customers to initiate and maintain contact.

Customers, however, have come to expect much more. The next-generation customer experience requires innovation in service and support across all access channels—contact center, web, mobile, social, email and face to face. Technology is helping to transform customer service in many ways, providing customer support teams with new tools to dramatically improve the service experience.

The next generation of customer service will be proactive, integrated and omnipresent. Do you have a foundation in place to turn the service experience into competitive advantage?
