Are your retail call centre and customer service systems ready for today’s consumer?
Whether it is Christmas, Black Friday or a Sale, we understand how critical the peak trading period is for retailers. For most, it is the difference between a successful year and a profits squeeze. It is also when customers are most dependent on retailers delivering on promises, and there is a real risk of a damaged reputation and lost trust if customers are let down.
For the technology underpinning the retail business, peak trading means many multiples of regular workload. Processes and systems are pushed to breaking point, often beyond, and these failures are increasingly visible to your customers in a digital world.
Drawing on our experience of working with many retailers of different sizes, sectors, geographies and technology profiles, combined with our expertise in retail and ecommerce technology, we have developed a service line that enables us to review current business plans, systems and operations, identify any potential bottlenecks or weaknesses, and provide a clear action plan for each.
Our overall approach is based on an eight-step process that can cover both retail and ecommerce technology and organisational readiness:
