Service Level Agreement Complaint Resolution
To be the most competitive in the market, organizations need a continuous flow of information about customers` needs, opinions and perspectives in order to respond quickly to their changing needs. This entry can be obtained through a formally planned feedback system that asks customers for feedback. Comments can be obtained through sales visits, reports, call centre interactions, customer satisfaction surveys, customer complaints and conferences or focus groups, as well as collaborative/client interactions. The information obtained is most used to more effectively manage customer interactions, adapt products and services, and modify or better control a particular process. However, these feedback mechanisms are not always used to target, analyze and correct complaints. PhaseWare`s Tracker suite plays an important role in helping businesses meet ALS and meet their obligations. Tracker`s highly configurable system supports the continuation of CSR problems by connecting new notes to existing SLAs. CSR only has to determine the seriousness of the problem. Tracker automatically determines the response and solution time of the ticket based on the level of problem and ALS.
The expectations of external and internal customers and colleagues – focusing service providers on customer needs – ensuring consistent service – providing a standard to which you can measure encouraging service improvements 1. Back to Back – where a department or organization offers a service to the customer. This type of ALS is ideal for simple processes2. Complex – when multiple departments or more than one organization provide a service or part of a service. Suitable for more complex processes. Author Kevin Lawrence (2000), spokesperson and business building coach suggests: „Companies are much more likely to face real problems because customer action, and the absence of customer complaints is usually a bad sign,” because they don`t feel comfortable expressing their concerns, or aren`t done enough to get feedback. He believes that „if people feel that they are heard, understood and appreciated, they usually give them a second chance.” He cites a study by the Strategic Planning Institute: complaints should be delegated at least within the organization. John Malley and William Gooch of the University of Arkansas and Ken Griffin (1998) Director of Information Operations Centers for Entergy Corp in the United States emphasize this point, „Managers need to delegate complaint management to the lowest possible level to avoid lengthy resolution of client disputes. If this is not the case, there will be another gap: the time needed to correct the complaints.
This can also lead to customer dissatisfaction. Milgate also stresses the importance of allowing staff to deal with complaints: „The best response system is one in which a customer`s complaint is dealt with immediately at the time of first contact, the so-called „Fix it now” approach. This means that all contacts can use their initiative and be allowed to do so: „For the claims system to be truly effective, staff must be trained to listen and provide a personalized response.” 1.
