The conventional wisdom in customer service promotes a strategy of delighting customers by providing service that exceeds expectations. It suggests that by providing customers with moments of “wow,” CSAT (i.e. customer satisfaction) scores will continue to improve and high CSAT scores drive loyalty.

MicroAutomation utilizes an alternative approach based on recent research from the Corporate Executive Board which suggests that reducing customer effort drives loyalty. Industry research shows that customer service should not focus on “offense” (e.g. bending over backwards to please the customer) but instead on “defense” (e.g. preventing customer frustration and delay). The industry research directly links customer effort to customer loyalty – meaning the ability to retain customers, improve your wallet share, and turn customers into advocates for your brand.

At MicroAutomation, our methodology to reduce customer effort is based on three building blocks:

  1. Know Me – Know who I am, understand my issue, personalize my experience
  2. Engage Me – Be proactive, contact me before I am forced to contact you with an issue
  3. Value My Time – Guide me to the fastest resolution, simplify the steps, limit my choices

MicroAutomation focuses on reducing customer effort within our consulting services to drive value to your organization based on assessments, technology recommendations, and process optimization.
