Government organizations are under increasing pressure to "do more, do better, and do it with less." Their customers – whether they're citizens served or other government employees – have customer service expectations no different than seen in the commercial sector. They want their issues resolved with the least amount of effort. Today’s customers want the systems they engage with to know who they are, anticipate why they are calling, and demonstrate a respect for their time.
Perhaps even more so with government systems, security and user authentication is critical. We have partnered with leading voice biometrics manufacturers to develop effective and secure voice authentication solutions. Combining these processes with location-based mobile applications, we can build and deploy responsive and secure customer-facing solutions for agency’s trusted resources.
Agent-based call centers are expensive – due to both ongoing staff costs and the constant recruit-train-replace cycles, the latter being rather common. Research has shown that agent churn rates and a general poor service ratings are significantly influenced by poor job satisfaction, due to handling excessive repetitive and low-value calls. It's not just the customers who get frustrated; call center representatives get frustrated as well, and the economic penalty there is significant.
Proprietary solutions and forced upgrades create an unnecessary budgetary burden. We architect solutions that make maximum use of an agency’s current assets and adhere to industry standards to reduce the total cost of ownership of the solutions we build. And, where practical, we use our existing portfolio of pre-packaged solutions and development frameworks to further reduce solution cost and accelerate development cycles.
We analyze customer engagement systems and processes to best balance the sometimes opposing forces of improving customer satisfaction, and optimizing agent performance – all while getting the most value out of the scarce agency budgets.
Doing business with the government is different than in private industry. Today’s government procurement must match the urgency of their internal customers’ requirements, yet work within established processes and regulations. This can often discourage or prevent qualified manufacturers and contractors from being able to bid.
We know government contracting.
