It was back in 1999 when our client, a leading investment bank approached us with the following request.
“Exceptional customer service is our top priority and our partner should be able to handle the high volumes and fluctuations without compromising the quality of service.”
Excited about this challenge, we immediately set up a team of customer service specialist that were going to function as the central point of contact for all customer inquiries from the private customers and sales partners of our client.
- Banking and Financial Service Center
- Social Media Monitoring
Through the telephone and e-mail channels, our employees cover a wide scope of inquiries from private investors who seek information on state-subsidized pension schemes to technical questions from our client’s sales partners. Finding competent and experienced service specialists with a background in finance and banking is sometimes challenging. Training new employees due to attrition takes seven weeks which is also challenging during peak seasons, due to the high volume of calls and e-mails. This is sometimes followed by extreme fluctuations which requires detailed planning, strong recruitment and in-depth training in order to meet the service levels.
Since our client is from the banking sector, customer satisfaction and service quality have always been top priorities. And to make sure that we effectively handle the high volumes during peak seasons and the fluctuations during low seasons, we guarantee a seamless process by implementing the DMAIC methodology to;
- Define the issue at hand
- Measure the situation through data collection
- Analyze the data through probing the root cause of the issue
- Improve our processes by finding solutions to the issues
- Control the long-term sustainability of the implemented solutions
And we are happy with the results that fulfill our KPIs:
- Quality ≥ 90%
- 80% of calls are answered within 30 seconds
- Availability rate ≥ 95%
- Average Handling Time
- private Investors > 5 minutes
- Sales Partners > 6,5 minutes
Project highlights also include:
- 19 years of excellent relationship and partnership with our client
