Customer Service Peer Group Hybrid Meeting 

Strategies to Reduce Customer Effort and Increase First Contact Resolution 
November 08, 2023 09:00 AM - 02:00 PM 
Join our peer learning group to explore the value of removing anticipated barriers to your customer's journey, so you can address their concern the first time they contact you, if not before it's a concern at all! 

Join us for an engaging and informative event where we will explore Strategies to Reduce Customer Effort and Increase First Contact Resolutions with fellow professionals and experts. As Matthew Dixson, co-author of The Effortless Experience, said: “You need to give your customers fewer reasons to be disloyal, and the best way to make that happen is to reduce customer effort.” Reducing effort is the best way to show empathy for your customers, because it reflects something personal for each of them.

However, delivering on those promises is not always easy. There are many barriers that can prevent us from providing a smooth and effortless customer service experience, such as: complex processes, lack of resources, poor communication, insufficient training, and misaligned incentives. These barriers can result in frustrated customers, low satisfaction scores, high churn rates, and increased costs.

That’s why we need to learn from each other and share best practices on how to overcome these challenges and improve our customer service performance. By participating in this event, you will have the opportunity to network with peers, exchange ideas, and gain insights from each other. You will also discover practical tips and tools to reduce customer effort and increase first-contact resolution in your own organization and team. Don’t miss this chance to enhance your organizations customer service skills and knowledge. Register now and join us for this exciting event!
