Telco customers shop around for the best prices, but the real differentiator is the experience they have when they get in touch with you. With the ongoing shift to digital contact channels, it's more important than ever that your service stands out from the rest of the industry. An experienced, digital-oriented partner can drive customer experience evolution - and even reduce costs in the process.
Identifying your business priorities is the first step to identifying areas of improvement that will benefit both your brand and your customers. Whether these involve customer experience directly or not, they can all drive positive transformation.
Once you have found the areas where you can make a change, it's time to consider how they will apply to your brand and the differences they could make to your customers. Do you need to transform to get to where you want to be?
Outsourcing is no longer just a cost saver - now it is a quality driver, empowering brands to reduce outgoings by streamlining service to shape customer experiences around their preferences as well as your business needs.
Whether you already outsource services, or want to start doing so, it's important to remember that the right outsourcing relationship is always a partnership; one where everyone is equally invested in success.
Capable solution design and integration means taking an engineered approach - tailoring suggestions and plans for improvement specifically to every brand, rather than taking a "one-size-fits-all" approach.
Digital customer contact aligns perfectly with telco customers' desire to explore new methods of getting in touch. Interactions over social media drive advocacy and boost sales, while webchat allows for high concurrency and low contact centre costs.
Digital customer contact options have a transformative effect on the customer experience. A key benefit is demand optimisation - reducing contacts on expensive channels like voice while empowering customers to use channels they are comfortable with.
There are various options for reducing costs - investment in bestshoring, where lower-cost locations are chosen based on their ability to provide high-quality service, is one option being pursued by an increasing number of telco providers.
Modern outsourcers are finding ways to reduce demand and move contacts to digital, non-voice channels. Data and insight work has demonstrated that not only are these channels more cost-effective, they are also the preferred option for many customers.
Telco providers understand the value of effective contact solutions. By allowing customers to move seamlessly between contact channels, you build on that reputation for putting communication first - and increase customer satisfaction in the process.
Omni-channel empowers businesses to transform the customer experience by integrating customer contact channels. Customers who approach businesses on Twitter, for example, can quickly move to webchat and seamlessly continue the conversation.
Finding the right solutions means investing in expert help; ideally a team that takes a scientific approach. Using the right tools to find the answers your business needs will save a lot of time, energy and trial and error in the future.
Industry research has demonstrated the advantages of taking a forward-thinking, digital approach, making the most of new technologies as opportunities to efficiently improve the customer and client experience.
At the moment, there is tremendous potential for service transformation to align with changing customer expectations - and they aren't going to stop changing any time soon, so that improvement must leave room for you to keep evolving.
Every brand is different; but the common reality is that a customer-oriented, digitally-focused approach can drive real improvement for clients, customers and teams. Drastic changes are coming in the way that we engage with customers, and how they advocate for us. With that in mind, it's worth considering new options - like digital contact or AI - to explore how they can benefit your business.
