In 2019, researchers found that 78% of people felt they had enough information about a company to permanently cement their perception of that brand on one, single interaction with their contact center.
“Customer Experience is the new brand”–Steve Cannon, CEO of Mercedes Benz
So, how can you make big improvements to your customers’ journey with small, manageable changes?
1. Speed up Delivery: Shocker…people HATE waiting on hold. If your call is more than 5 minutes customers are dropping off and cementing a bad impression of the services you deliver.
2. Use Dynamic Scripts: A good scripting tool helps your team save time logging critical information and focuses their energy toward finding readily available answers or solving customer challenges. They feel prepared and confident that they can win over difficult customer engagements.
3. Collect Satisfaction Surveys: Every day starts with the best of intentions and highest expectations, but we all fall short some where along the road.
We need feedback from customers to give meaningful praise to those that go above and beyond, constructive support to teams that are struggling, and learn how our customers are changing so we can evolve with them.
4. Monitor in Real-Time: Good leaders are always looking ahead to help their team prepare for the unknown, but great leaders know when they are needed in the trenches to fight side-by-side.
Real-time monitoring shows a clear picture of your contact center at any moment. Status of agents, dialog times, queues, etc…
5. Invest in Right Solutions: The right customer service tools will help your team reduce downtime, achieve higher contact ratios, and keep track of company KPI’s.
Conclusion, exceptional customer experience drives growth as much as, if not more than, great products. Your contact center is the hub for delivering a winning perception of your brand. From face to face interaction, to digital engagement and quality conversations with real people.
The most innovative companies are constantly developing new strategies to personalize the customer journey, and contact centers are ground zero for each of them.

Why customer service is important to Contact Centers?
Giving excellent customer service from the first contact should be paramount to any company or Contact Center.
Talking about customer service in Contact Centers is talking about a better managing of one of the most important relationships for a company.
This is the reason why people in charge of the relationship with customers must adequately manage the situations that arise every day.
Why is this so important for my Contact Center?
There’s a new study which shows that just one experience with a contact center can permanently shift a customer’s perception of a brand.
The study looked at over 2000 consumers, more than 100 agents, and analyzed a wide range of customer journeys. The conclusion is clear:
In 2020 experience drives business growth as much as or perhaps even more than product.
Furthermore, this study shows that 78% of people said that just one experience with a contact center representative was enough to change permanently their opinion of a company.
Innovative companies are moving toward a new strategy based on experience management to optimize and differentiate on the experiences they create and deliver.
There are three ways to deliver customer experience:
- In person
- Over the phone
Contact centers are one of the most critical operational mechanisms for delivering customer experience.
It is possible to improve customer service with small big steps
Improving customer service requires studying the customer journey. About 75 % of customer journeys begin in digital channels and 33% of those ends on a phone call.
With all the canals present in a Contact Center, how do consumer choose to communicate?
There are three principal channels:
Email: Less time- sensitive journeys end up being resolved through email.
Chat: People use Facebook Messenger, Whastapp, or twitter messages because they want to have a quick chat.
Phone Calls: Phone Calls are the last line of defense. Customer call when either the social channel don’t exist or haven’t worked.
How do I improve my customer experience?
Nuxiba presents these recommendations:
Upgrade service speed: The reasonable waiting time on a phone call is less than 5 minutes, otherwise they get a bad impression of the service they are receiving.
Use scripts: The script specifically develops the call step by step considering all possible alternatives for your next course of action.
A good script contains all the questions that the agent must ask the client, as well as containing supporting information for the agent.
Apply satisfaction surveys: At the end of the call, the agent must ensure that he/she has covered all customer concerns.
It is recommended that you apply a survey to all customers at the end of the call; this is a great tool, because it allows you to know firsthand the impression that the customer has about the service that had being offered to him.
Monitor: Real-time monitoring of Contact Center operation is one of the main tools to be counted on.
It should present a clear picture of the current situation of the operation when showing the status of agents, dialog times, queues, etc.
