Convergys Announces New Solutions for In-house Customer Service Operations
Convergys Corporation (NYSE: CVG), a global leader in relationship management, announced today the general availability of its new Multichannel Automation Solutions portfolio. The portfolio leverages the latest advanced technologies in channel automation enhanced with realtime decisioning, personalization, and analytics to help companies with in house customer service operations improve the quality and value of their customer interactions, lower associated costs, and better understand customer service expectations to retain customers. Surprisingly, industry studies today show that most companies believe they are delivering an acceptable service experience but only 8 percent of their customers would agree, and of those customers who've had an unsatisfactory experience, they are more likely to defect than to make their complaints known to the company – placing considerable revenue and revenue growth at risk. "Companies are seeing their cost to serve escalating as customer satisfaction with the service experience declines," said Andrea Ayers, president of Customer Management and the Relationship Technology Management (RTM) group at Convergys. "Our new solutions portfolio helps companies deliver an effective and meaningful customer experience to each and every customer while lowering the rising cost to serve and deriving greater value from their customer relationships. "Convergys formed its RTM group in late 2007 to support increasing client demand for more technology enablement of the customer service experience across live agent and self-service channels for in-house customer service operations.
