A Fortune 500 security software enterprise found that it had significant room for improvement in customer satisfaction (C-SAT) scores due to suboptimal product support processes. Genpact developed a transformation roadmap and implemented a set of analytics-informed projects, on process reengineering, and technology improvement.

Business challenge

A Fortune 500 security software company with sizable product and technical support operations consisting of 3,500+ people handling 1.1 million cases annually faced rapidly evolving customer expectations and customer satisfaction (C-SAT) scores below industry benchmarks. The client aspired to achieve best in the industry customer satisfaction levels and thus needed to transform its product support operations.

Genpact solution

In-depth interviews with key personnel, floor shadowing, and workshops helped understand the “as is” product support processes. Lean Six Sigma experts then mapped these processes, determined appropriate KPIs, and benchmarked them against best-in-class performance. Proprietary contact center analytics provided insights into the customer satisfaction drivers. A set of 55 analytics-based initiatives were identified to streamline product support from case creation to effective resolution. An implementation roadmap was put in place to implement a set of prioritized high-impact initiatives.

  • Establish a seamless two-tier support - advanced technical support for a superior experience for business customers and to provide real-time assistance to frontline consumer and business support staff when necessary
  • Optimized interactive voice response (IVR) to reduce customer touch points and promote alternate support channels
