REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Sept. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Support.com, Inc. (Nasdaq:SPRT), a leading provider of cloud-based technology services and software designed to create new revenue streams and improve customer experience, will present with Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) a free webinar, "Delivering Consistent Tech Support to Reduce Costs and Enhance Customer Experience", on October 10, 2013 at 11 AM PDT / 2 PM EDT. Presenting for Support.com is James Morehead, Vice President, Product Management and Corporate Marketing, and John Ragsdale, Vice President, Technology and Social Research, TSIA.
How customers experience the technology that drives products and services has a huge impact on the value of a company's brand, the perception of the company, and ultimately the bottom line. And with social media ever present, the consumer's voice is amplified and tech support experiences, good or bad, can go viral quickly. As a result, delivering high quality tech support is becoming a critical component of the overall customer service strategy for many companies.
At the same time complexity is increasing as more products and services depend on connections to the Internet and each other. According to the 2013 TSIA Benchmark Survey of customer service executives, 65% of the products they support are "highly complex" (up from 42% of products in 2003).
Solving most technology problems remains, however, a largely manual process involving scripts, static knowledge bases and time-consuming "talk therapy". The result is an inconsistent service experience where successfully solving the issue and providing a positive customer experience is highly dependent on the expertise of individual agents.
In this live 30-minute webinar, James Morehead and John Ragsdale will discuss:
Why high level metrics for contact center performance can mask customer experience-impacting variability in service delivery quality.
How guided workflow, in-context diagnostics and automated solutions can increase consistency and solve rates while streamlining training and reducing AHT.
The importance of capturing, analyzing and synthesizing rich data to optimize service delivery processes.
Innovative strategies for impacting customer experience across the spectrum of technology support.
