The New Customer Experience Center

Implementing the New Rules of Customer Service
Author: Upakul Barkakaty

The customer service organization is constantly challenged with balancing cost and customer satisfaction. With the arrival of new technologies such as the Smartphone, Big Data, Social platforms and Cloud, customers have become more tech savvy and more demanding, while their expectations and communication behaviors are more diverse than ever before. As a result, products, technologies, systems and applications have become more complex to install, use and troubleshoot.



User Scenarios & Pain Points:

  • Difficulties faced in using the phone channel
  • Disconnection among channels
  • Inaccessible Knowledge
  • Lack of customer collaboration platforms
  • Lack of customer sensitivity
  • Lack of integration between communication systems and CRM application
  • Loss of context from one customer contact to another
  • Missing manuals and how-to-guides
  • Not listening to social platforms
  • Unavailability of multiple channels

The modern day Customer Experience Center should have the following attributes in order to significantly improve the customer experience.

  1. Omni-Channel Enabled

A Customer Experience Center is defined as “Omni-Channel enabled” when it enables multiple interaction channels for the customer to make contact with the enterprise. Modern customers are equipped with smart phones and multi-task during much of their day. They want to have different options regarding how they communicate with their business associates, friends and family. They want easy access to any channels available on their smart device including telephone, email, chat, social platform, or the web. Business enterprises should, therefore, be equipped to handle multiple channels. Additionally, they should allow the customer to seamlessly hop from one channel to another, without repeating the inputs that the customer has already provided during previous interactions.

  1. Knowledge Searchable

The Customer Experience Center is considered knowledge searchable if it is equipped with a knowledge base and that knowledge can be effectively searched. The customer service agents should be able to easily search this knowledge to solve issues that customers face while using their products or services.

  1. Socially Sensitive and Aware

The Customer Experience Center will gain a reputation as socially sensitive and aware if it continuously monitors the sentiments of its customers on social public platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The Center must address any issues or concerns before they spread over the web or go viral.

  1. Content Rich

A customer experience center is content rich if it effectively uses modern day technologies to create, save and distribute multi-media based information on product installation, product maintenance, and other How-to guides. This helps customers to easily understand products and it is conducive to the efficient and effective use of products.

  1. Customer Collaborative

The Customer Collaborative Experience center capitalizes on the customers’ experiences and ideas to solve other customers’ issues.

  1. Data Intelligent

The data intelligent Customer Experience Center effectively gathers, analyzes, and draws inferences from previous interactions with the customer to make the current interaction a more effective and a fulfilling experience. There is no point in making new product offers to a customer who calls 3x times per week, and does not get a satisfactory resolution to issues that he is facing. These customers need specific attention and a phone call from a qualified person that understands the customer situation and can resolve his or her problems.

  1. Mobile Convenient

The Customer Experience Center is mobile convenient if it provides a single integrated native iPhone and Android based application to its customers that allows them to easily initiate any type of interaction by simply swiping and clicking on their smart phones. This process should not require the customer to remember his or her Customer ID, work order number, billing reference number, etc. For example, if the customer is waiting for their breakfast in a restaurant, he or she should be able to simply initiate a chat session with the business. If a customer needs to speak to a live agent, then it needs to be very easy to schedule a call back instead of waiting for the customer agent to become available. Customers should have the ability to swipe on the visual diagnostic tree or Visual IVR to find potential solutions to their problems instead of interacting with a company using TTY phone based IVR which has proved very frustrating for users.
