Running a customer support team these days is a heavy logistical load. Customers want support on more platforms than ever, more real-time channels than ever (eek!), and they’re expecting higher quality support. They want every experience with a brand to reinforce whatever positive associations attracted them to the company in the first place, and if something goes awry once, that’s enough to convince them to seek out a competitor.
In order to keep a support team running smoothly, support team directors and managers need great people, process, and technology.
Many of our customers rely on a classic process (and people and technology) loop to keep their teams in ship shape – it’s a feedback cycle between quality assurance and training.
These teams use data from their QA process to influence what they talk about with agents in 1:1s, find holes in their onboarding process, and determine topics for ongoing team training. They use common mistakes picked up from quality assurance reports to determine customer service training topics, and then see how well these trainings have stuck with QA.
Since so many teams use QA data in this way, we figured we’d create some functionality around the training element that’s linked so integrally to quality audits.
We recently solidified our union, and built out an integration with Lessonly.
Lessonly allows employees to learn new skills, practice them, and test their new knowledge in a low stakes environment.
MaestroQA allows managers to see how employees are performing with new information, and use this information to plan new trainings, and then circle back and see how well the trainings stuck.
Together, you cover all aspects of the ongoing cycle of feedback between a manager and an agent.
So the gap between quality and training just got smaller – you can now assign lessons to agents in the moment that you realize they could use a little boost in a particular area.
This is great because :
Here’s what we're talking about:
The right training, assigned in real time as the need arises, will drive the incremental improvements that you’re looking for on your support team.
With a more holistic customer service quality assurance<>training loop that’s constantly reinforced, your team will be a well-oiled machine.
Better team, better agents, better work 👉 happier customers 💍
