Creating Next-Generation Agent Experiences for Service Optimization
Good UX Means Good Business
In a world where technology is rapidly advancing and user expectations are rising, it’s no longer enough to have an average user experience; to delight your users and surpass your competition you must strive for the exceptional.
Optimizing the Service Cloud Console can be a game-changer for service organizations to gain competitive advantage. A network security company was looking to use Service Cloud Console as its productivity platform for global support. Perficient deployed Service Cloud and helped identify ways to optimize the Service Console for technical support engineers with a direct GoToMeeting integration within Salesforce. The impact on a team of 150 support engineers resulted in time savings of 3,000 minutes and 10,500 clicks saved per day. The technical support center and managers also benefited from a fully customizable real-time notification system providing a centralized view to help quickly escalate issues, reduce unnecessary email communications, and prioritize cases to effectively run the support business. Overall the UI enhancements have helped align people, process and technology to their strategic support goals.
Using Knowledge as a Strategic Weapon
Agents need contextual information to service customers quickly and effectively. There is huge potential for service organizations to greatly improve how knowledge is captured and shared, yet companies often struggle to get knowledge management right to drive business results. Perficient’s staff of Knowledge-Centered Support (KCS) certified Salesforce experts helped a leading high-definition action camera company deliver innovative solutions with Service Cloud to automate knowledge creation, create a 360-degree view of the customer, and empower agents with customer intelligence designed to optimize business processes, specifically return merchandise authorization (RMA) and case creation, as well as personalize the customer experience to increase client satisfaction. Many of our clients are also looking to extend knowledge bases with a self-service community for customers, using Community Cloud, which is something we’re recognized and well-known for in the Salesforce community.
Delivering Omni-channel and Self-Service Support for Customers
Providing seamless experiences in today’s digital-first world is a daunting task for many companies. However, leading gaming companies have turned to Perficient to help “up their customer service game” using Service Cloud. New self-service support models that embrace social, mobile and peer-to-peer collaboration are becoming increasingly popular to quickly scale the business. Perficient has helped these innovative brands explore using Live Agent, Chatter, mobile and gamification to transform the service experience and empower customers to get engaged and serve others. As a Fullforce Service Cloud Master, clients have the confidence that we deeply understand Service Cloud, and how to leverage its capabilities to deliver innovative omni-channel experiences for customer engagement.
