It seems we’re flying through 2022 already, so let’s do a quick check-in. Did your business set realistic resolutions for your customer service strategy this year? If the answer is no, that’s okay!
We developed 5 attainable resolutions that will inspire you to ramp up your customer service strategy and stay ahead of contact center trends this year.
#1 Understand where you are at now and where you want to go next
It is always best to identify your key KPIs and to also set realistic, outcomes-based goals, to work towards. Change doesn’t happen overnight, so setting clear and attainable goals can help you to prioritize contact center needs.
Examples of these goals include: decreasing your agent’s average handle time by (X%), increasing first call resolution by (X%), and more!

#2 Understand what your customers are looking for and what they need
Following up your customer interactions with a post-call survey allows for visibility into insights in regards to customer satisfaction so that you can better serve your customers. This allows you to better understand who your customers are, where they are at in their journey and how you can provide them with the best experience possible.
#3 Be available on your customers’ channel of choice
