In addition to the initial hardware setup, VIPdesk also staffs this voice in the US and has a comprehensive list of international languages available. The US-based languages include Spanish, French and English and we partner with international partners for a vast list of international languages.
– Digital – Email, Chat, SMS, Video
In addition to traditional channel of voice, we support all non-voice channels including email, chat, SMS and video. We help our clients design a solution that creates the most efficient mix of channels. This digital mix of channels reduces customer friction related to complaints and reduces low-value interactions. While we don’t recommend email, we understand it’s a legacy channel and we help our clients migrate to newer, immediate service channels. Studies have shown that chat is 3x times more efficient than email and costs less per transaction. We work with the client to determine the right mixture of service offerings for their brand.
– Social – DM, Reply, Monitoring, Messenger
In addition to traditional communication channels, many customers today prefer to engage with brands via social media channels such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more. A comprehensive customer service strategy includes the monitoring of customer feedback on all social channels. Often customers will seek customer service via social media outlets because this is their primary engagement channel. An integrated approach ensures timely responses via social channels.
We provide social media management services that seamlessly integrate the entire customer experience with a single voice. Social media monitoring is valuable for brand discovery, building trends, monitoring of new campaigns and products, and identifying influencers that can become valuable partners. Social customer service via direct messaging enhances the customer service experience by giving customers an easy way to interact with your business. Social posts are monitored at all hours so you can respond quickly to any questions or comments posted publicly by your audience. With these services in place, we can discover key conversations happening around your brand; monitor customer posts and provide public responses. Live social media solutions can provide seamless access to your audience.
– Offline Back Office Work
Although customer service primarily involves handling live interactions with customers, as businesses grow, offline work expands in every customer service operation. You can outsource “offline” functions for an integrated front-office/back-office operation to free up staff. Some of these operations may appear to be disconnected from customer support, but they are often linked. When you streamline office functions, improve efficiency, and restructure how you approach resources, you can dedicate your focus to customer service solutions.
VIPdesk provides recommendations and staffing for “offline” functions that are customized according to the needs of each client. “Offline” support will be provided as well as training so that staff can provide critical support to the front-office. “Offline” functions can include fraud control processes, escalations, voice of the customer responses, shipping coordination, and warehouse communication. “Offline” may also include non-voice support and managing escalated management operations. VIPdesk’s solutions are flexible so that daily business can be maintained without interruption.
– Review Management
In order to provide a better customer service experience, we recommend that clients tap into the voice of their customers. When you understand your customers, this creates customer loyalty. For 80% of consumers, online reviews have changed their minds about a purchase. This emphasizes the need for proper management with respect to online reviews. Our solutions stay on the pulse of your customers and monitor and respond to online reviews (good or bad) in real-time. One result of effective review management is the building of brand awareness though every social media platform. Our team can ensure reviews are responded to timely.
