Cut your Cost Per Contact in Half!
The industry average is $7.16 per contact, and some are even $25+, depending on channel & product complexity. But your org’s support Cost Per Contact (CPC) can be, and should be lower! As a starting point, if you shaved just $1 or $2 off your CPC – what would that do to your bottom line?
Excess customer support live chats, calls, and emails bleed money unnecessarily. Today, agents spend far too much time gathering info from customers, taking notes on their problems, and fumbling around while unfamiliar with the proper fix. Good news: there is a technology solution for this. Here’s 4 ways you can quickly reduce cost:
- Empower your agents to handle more contacts per hour
- Help your customers self-serve
- Increase chatbot coverage
- Decrease note-taking & tagging requirements for agents
Empower your agents to handle more contacts per hour
To handle more contacts per hour, agents obviously need to spend less time on each one.
Let’s fix this & save $: Since Spiral gives you a live list of reported bugs & service issues, agents will be rapidly trained & alerted to emerging issues. When all issues become known issues, managers can quickly deploy responses & fixes so agents & customers spend less time in problem discovery.
Help your customers self-serve
To make self-service solutions searchable in your knowledge base, you’ll have to know the exact language customers are using to describe the problem – the slightest variation in your article’s title & wording can mean the difference between customers finding their answer and not.
Let’s fix this & save $: Spiral displays the specific wordings your customers are using to describe the problem at hand, so your CS or Content teams can mirror it accordingly.
Increase chatbot coverage
Many simple problems are being unnecessarily routed to human agents for solving. That’s because these problems – however simple – are still blindspots to the chatbot.
Let’s fix this & save $: When programming chatbot responses, start at the top of Spiral’s issue list and work your way down to increase the number of contacts that can be auto-solved by a chatbot.
Decrease note-taking & tagging requirements for agents
This is still important data to capture, but having agents do this manually wastes valuable time.
Let’s fix this & save $: Spiral scans full support conversations and auto-assigns descriptive tags with each issue they mention, creating new tags as new issues arise. Since Spiral takes care of detecting and alerting Product & Engineering leaders of all mentioned bugs and service issues, agents can now focus on notes related to serving the customer, not reporting the issue internally – saving minutes per contact.
