Drive down customer complaints
Help other departments problem solve
Contact centres can often be siloed from the rest of the business, focusing on reporting on and improving their internal metrics, such as service level and abandon rate.
In reality, however, a large proportion of complaints come for reasons outside the contact centre’s control, with the likes of badly designed websites, limited or poorly implemented self-service options, delivery enquiries and product issues all aggravating customers to the point of complaint.
Voice of the Customer tools such as surveys and speech or text analytics can help identify these issues by aggregating topics and sentiment across a much wider range than manually listening to calls would allow.
By experiencing and mapping customer journeys first hand, triggers for complaints can also be identified. But remember, the important part is to then prioritise and act on these valuable insights to improve the customer journey.
