QUALITY FOR EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE

When it comes to customer support metrics, first-call resolution (FCR) stands out because it reaches out to so many important aspects of customer service and support experience customer satisfaction, service efficiency and operating costs. When achieved consistently, high FCR rates have a positive impact on each of these areas and deliver a high yield of significant overall benefits..

call center quality initiativesWe understand the correlation between First-Contact-Resolution (FCR) and customer satisfaction, when one goes up – the other has to follow. Statistics suggest, for every 1% improvement in FCR, there is a 1% of an improvement in customer satisfaction. Also, 12% of customers tend leave if it takes more than 2 attempts to resolve their issue. At the same time, an improved FCR helps in reducing call volumes hence a better level of service is always achieved. We achieve this through our experienced service management team, who are responsible for service implementation, quality management, technical implementation, training, and service reporting and process and procedures analysis.

Our operations are highly distinctive on following dimensions to achieve a higher FCR Rate.
