Part II of The Northridge Group’s State of CX 2023 report reveals 93% of business leaders believe their companies make it easy for customers to resolve issues. Only 66% of customers agree.
The first step in improving Contact Center performance is determining what issues need to be resolved.
What are the root causes of inconsistent business results or customer dissatisfaction with the Contact Center experience? What is causing high customer churn and low renewal/retention rates? Why are operations costs escalating? What is causing high employee attrition and low employee morale? The answers are often not immediately apparent.
The Northridge Group provides clients with assessments that uncover the root causes of problems.
Our comprehensive end-to-end assessments of current Contact Center operations and/or Customer Experience are designed to identify opportunities to achieve desired experience. We use the results of these assessments to develop detailed recommendations for improvement. Depending upon client need, our assessments may cover core processes, business and customer results, operational results and metrics, customer experience/engagement and technology, as well as human capital issues such as hiring/recruiting, Workforce Management (WFM), training and quality.
The Northridge Group will assess your Contact Center’s challenges and devise a strategy to help it flourish.
