ConvergeOne has a track record in delivering Hosted Contact Center Services that provide outstanding customer experiences and build customer trust. Recently, ConvergeOne helped a customer reduce cost per touch and improve the citizen experience by implementing a Next-Generation Contact Center. The company developed a universal queue that provides more efficient routing, enabling it to keep more calls in-house. By creating this universal queue, the company can intelligently route customers between 17 internal contact centers and its external service partners. As a result, the company is saving an estimated $40 million through more efficient call handling. The enhancements implemented have resulted in marked improvements in Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), such as decreased wait times, fewer abandoned calls, and reduced customer churn. Since adopting the new technology, the corresponding service improvements have enabled the company to cut its credit to dissatisfied customers by 50%. The company has also earned an improved Net Promoter Score, which far outpaces its competitors in its industry.
"ConvergeOne has an industry-leading customer experience team, and we pride ourselves on our ability to provide transformational experiences for our customers," said Andrew Bacon, Vice President, Customer Experience, ConvergeOne. "I believe our partnership with GTA speaks volumes about our ability to deliver on its vision.
