Key questions to analyze the customer support data to improve the customer experience?

customer data analysis

With the ease of capturing data during interactions with customers, companies from start-ups to big corporations have valuable raw data to improve their products and services. Customer support data is one of the key data. Each customer support ticket has rich context. Companies that analyze the raw data to improve the customer experience make a big difference.

Here are some key questions to analyze customer support data to improve customer experience:

What is the reason for the customer call?

What is the customer’s experience?

What steps led the customer to call?

Did other customers experience the same problem? How did we solve it?

Did we receive consecutive calls from the same customers?

How could we incorporate the customer’s experience to the product or service to eliminate the problem?

*New* look

We all appreciate the quality and speed when a solution is delivered. However, we don’t underestimate the way it is presented to us. Based on your feedback we have redesigned the user interface. We are glad to introduce the new look for EZPro. With the new dashboard, ticket view, ticket history and updates, EZPro is easier to engage in. Take a look.

*New* Ticket Save function

Sometimes it takes a second, sometimes days to resolve it. We heard your feedback and added the magic save button. Now you can save your updates on the ticket without assigning it to someone or resolving the ticket.

With the new Save function you can save your changes when the ticket is assigned to you. If you click on Work on ticket button your changes will be retrieved. You can resume your work. Once you assign the ticket to someone else or resolve it, your changes will be available for others to view.

Save button also comes with Discard – there is always a second thought.

Spring cleaning for EZPro

overwhelmed teacher, paper everywhere

In our last blog we have discussed the spring cleaning in the office and how to eliminate the sea of paper. Going paperless is a great solution for a clean workspace all around the year. However, going online might create data clutter as well. De-clutterring data in your computer, in network drives and email can be part of the spring cleaning. As EZPro is an online application that captures your operation, we would like to share some tips to de-clutter your data in EZPro.

  1. Tag every ticket to organize
  2. Close the pending tickets that are completed periodically
  3. Prefer EZPro storage for documents and attach them to tickets
  4. Maintain ticket categories based on business needs
  5. Review ticket fields periodically
  6. Archive obsolete knowledge base articles
  7. Tag, populate keywords and select the correct category and sub category for knowledge base articles
  8. Maintain knowledge base category and subcategory lists based on business needs

Spring cleaning in the office

spring-cleaning-highres-resized-600.jpg

We bet that the spring cleaning intentions started to bud in March when the winter gave way to the spring at least on the calendar. Then, the winter stayed with most of us a bit longer and the spring cleaning was postponed.

If you haven’t done any spring cleaning yet, you can start with your computer by wiping the monitor and untangling computer cords and cables. Cleaning the office space will get your workspace back in a tip-top shape. Are you drowning in a sea of paper? You can archive old files and organize current ones. Recycle and throw away items that you don’t need. Sort out your emails and data in your computer.

You can make the spring cleaning a team event and fun. Given the amount of paper to organize, or shred and recycle, a paperless organization might promise a clean workspace all around the year. Think strategically how you can make the office less paper dependent.

Have you done any spring cleaning around the office this year? Please share your thoughts and experience with us.

Why is knowledge base important for your representatives?

knowledge-base2

In our previous post we have discussed the value of a knowledge base for your customers. Knowledge base is required for quick and accurate customer service.

Representatives aka agents need to have access to a central repository of procedures, changes, customer and agent experiences, and internal documents to provide high quality service in a short period of time. Multiple channel customer support and growing business sometimes lead to deviations from standard solutions. A well maintained knowledge base is an answer to that. Clearly categorized articles should be easily searched and solutions should be reached quickly. Solutions should be associated with areas where they can be applied to. There should be a seamless content management process behind publishing articles. Maintaining a knowledge base is an ongoing project and it guarantees delivering quality service at a low cost.

Why is knowledge base important for your customers?

A central and easily accessible knowledge base will add a great value to customer service. You can publish customer experience, troubleshooting documents, frequently asked questions, manuals and procedures for your customers and your users. Your knowledge base will be the extension of your organization.

Clearly categorized articles with efficient key words for quick search will eliminate customer calls, emails and tickets.

You can think of the knowledge base as a never-ending project and improve it constantly to serve your customers without even directly contacting them.
