What was your challenges?

We needed to be more available to our customers. It had to be easy for the students to reach us in the most simple and efficient way.

What was your goals?

To create a more efficient and professional Customer Support and handle peaks of contact requests.

The Solution

  • Channel routing: By prioritizing chat when customer support was online we could deflect time consuming emails and phone calls
  • Service agent efficiency: By using pre-formed answers, Shared documents and Case management to simplify case handling
  • Cobrowsing: With cobrowsing we could view the same webpage as the customers and help them in web processes or navigate them to the right page.

The result

  • Much higher ‘First Contact Resolution’- rate thanks to channel routing from emails to chat
  • High email reduction
  • High phone call reduction

What are your next step?

To connect Vergic with their student housing CRM to push and pull data between the systems trough Vergic API.

Please share a story where Vergic Engage made a difference for your company:

When the admission decisions come in around July 11th every year, we have the highest pressure in our chat channel. We staff the chat with all resources from our Service center. Such a day may mean that an agent has up to 16 active chats going on at the same time. In total, we have about 650 chats during the same day. In situations like that you need a reliable tool that works in all kind of weather. Thanks to Vergic, we do, concludes Kristina Persson.
