Lockdowns cause by the pandemic definitely has a huge impact on customer shopping behavior. There is a significant increase in online purchases and e-commerce transactions double overnight. With these changes, the company found it hard to keep up with the volume of requests and struggle to keep a better customer satisfaction rate. With the added strain to business operation and implementing remote work, the client decided to ask the help of a business outsourcing service company to meet the increasing demand for customer support.
After 90 days of operation, customer experience definitely has changed, and a net score of 95% satisfaction rate was recorded. To maximize staff productivity, idle time is set not to exceed 30 minutes for the whole team within an 8-hour shift. When fewer calls came through, team members undergo training and coaching.
The team established to handle sales calls was able to exceed the daily sales quota (18 sales per day) which allows the brand to profit more. Since an established team was able to keep with the volume of customer requests, the company’s core staff member can focus on other significant tasks important for the business.
The private equity company now had a pathway for a scalable solution to add more brands to its portfolio as their BPO partner (Unity Communications) could add or remove staff as needed by demand. The leadership team also could measure the cost of the monthly administration costs to support brands that may not have the same level of efficiencies. Thus new acquisitions would have a lower risk of failure when making the decision to purchase.
