Simplified views to network data make customer care calls nearly 30% faster
September 9, 2014
Copenhagen, Denmark – Nokia Networks and Denmark’s Telenor have taken down the average length of the operator’s network-related customer care calls from 11 to 8 minutes, saving nearly 30% of time needed to solve problems. The results were achieved through the Reporting Suite for Customer Care, part of the Nokia Performance Manager. The solution is commercially available to all operators.
The Reporting Suite for Customer Care collates a variety of real-time and longer-term data, including trouble tickets, network alarms and key performance indicators (KPIs). The resulting overview is then presented on a single dashboard that enables customer care agents to more quickly pinpoint and resolve network issues. Telenor customer care technical support use the solution to eliminate the time-consuming process of using four different tools.
“We aim to provide the best customer service of any operator in Denmark. The new Nokia Networks Performance Manager solution supports that aim and is already aiding us to deliver significantly better customer service levels. Plus, we are able to work more efficiently, which reduces our customer care costs,” said Claus Nielsen, OSS senior developer at Telenor.
“Most of us know how frustrating it can be hanging on the line while the operator’s customer care operative works behind the scenes to resolve a complaint. With Telenor’s passion to provide a great customer experience and our deep telco knowhow, we were able to speed up customer care calls significantly,” said Rabi Daniel, account manager at Nokia Networks. “Having all the necessary information visualized on a single portal greatly simplifies the workload of a customer care agent.”
The solution covers 2G, 3G and LTE networks built with equipment from multiple vendors. Reporting Suite for Customer Care can be deployed as part of a Nokia Performance Manager *. Currently, Performance Manager is used by more than 60 operators around the world to manage multi-vendor network performance. Real-time network performance data is collected by Nokia Serve atOnce Traffica**, which is deployed by around 160 operators worldwide.
