Enriching customer service experience facilitates prosperous earnings The businesses that deal with technology and technical products have contact centers for extending support to their customers. Most of the customers are unable to handle the technical issues and seek assistance from the contact center agents. Though these contact centers are meant for resolving customers’ issues it barely suffices their needs thus raising the cost of operations with escalated calls and multiple interactions, notwithstanding the frustration of the customers. The contact center agents have to use multiple sources for retrieving information to resolve the issues, and generally they are incapable of finding the root cause leading to inaccurate resolutions and lengthy procedures. Expenses rise due to the multiple interactions between the customer and the agent in trying to find the correct root cause. There is no way that agents are provided with information about the customers’ past interactions, and each time the entire process is repeated from scratch wasting useful time and making the customers irate. To overcome the challenges and maintain cost-efficient operations businesses need to employ reliable customer service solutions that can help in delivering accurate resolutions and reducing expenses. There is a requirement for an environment with an integrated knowledgebase that facilitates searching for root causes and its relevant solutions. The environment should also facilitate the agents to view information about the customers’ prior interactions so that they can provide prompt and satisfactory services. The customer service solutions should provide numerous options to find the correct answers depending on the level of expertise and knowledge of the agents. It should have the capability to capture the real interactions between customers and agents to add the experiences in the knowledgebase for future references.
