The client required HGS to work on and improves performance in these parameters:
• Improve quality.
• Improve customer experience.
• Provide value-add services.
• Maintain low employee attrition rate.
How We Do It
The client has enlisted a few metrics on which HGS had to perform and achieve targets. The metrics were set to primarily ensure that there will be continuity and consistency in customer support. HGS gives utmost importance to these metrics, achieving highly impressive scores beyond client SLAs for: emails responded to, calls answered, AHT, call quality and call abandon rates.
By conducting weekly refreshers and quality feedbacks for all the LOBs supported, call quality has improved significantly to 90% from an earlier 40%.
Customer emails are responded to within the TAT with accurate resolution provided. Enhanced customer experience with the value-add of placing outbound calls to address abandoned calls and calls that came in before and after operational hours (9 a.m. IST to 9 p.m. IST). This includes consistently achieving the Call Quality (CQ) targets by providing constructive feedback and coaching on regular basis.
Currently, the number of emails responded to within defined SL specified is at 90%. The team is also performing well on the call quality metric with a 90% score, which is a 50% improvement over the earlier score.
