    5. Critical Challenges Facing Support • Decrease in profit margins. Result: Customer support budgets are being cut. • Rise in administrative and operational costs. The resources and infrastructure necessary to sustain a support organization are higher than ever. Necessary costs include hiring, training, and keeping quality support analysts; purchasing and upgrading hardware and software; and, maintaining state-of-the-art facilities. These costs are compounded by the continuous rise in the amount of resources required to support an increased number of products and customer requests. • Increase in customer demand. Today, there are more technologies and products in the marketplace, and more people using technology products than ever before. This wide-spread adoption of technology has included a dramatic rise in non-technical users requiring support. As a result, the baseline for support has increased, with greater demands. • Increase in product complexity. Requests for support are becoming much more complex due to the advent of open systems, client/server computing, mobile devices, and the interdependency of technology products in a computing environment.

    10. Operational Challenges Today • Today’s environment requires an optimized organization that allows for increased productivity and decreased cost while maintaining customer satisfaction. • Some key areas that present the most challenges in a support organization • Meeting ongoing cost challenges • Time management and employee efficiencies • Establish and maintain performance productivity goals that are aligned with business goals • Modifying redundant or out dated processes and adapting to today’s environment • Consolidating similar function’s to introduce daily operational efficiencies • Adapting organizational structure to decrease overhead without jeopardizing daily management and oversight • Balancing Productivity and performance with continuous improvement and training • Process effective and efficient daily management and inspections

    11. Service Desk Optimization • People • Analysis of current roles definition and organizational structure • Time and motion study of current roles • Outlining and defining specific roles with productivity and performance goals • Creation and training of new roles where needed • Development of a business goal oriented organizational structure • Consolidation of similar work type’s • Process • Current process inspection and evaluation • Daily performance / productivity inspection and diagnosis • Time management process • Daily forecasting and proactive scheduling process • Workflow notification and escalation process • Continuous improvement by Coaching and Training • Quality management process • Tools • Single truth reporting • Workflow notification and escalation tracking tool • Time Management tool • Coaching and Training tracking tool • Structured quality tracking tool

    12. Service Desk Optimization – made simple • Organizational Structure & Roles and Responsibilities • Sounds fundamental, it is! • Time Management • Most measured, sometimes the least managed! • Workflow Management • Not every incident is “Closed First Call”… • Service Monitoring • Someone needs to be watching the skies… • Performance Management • All those numbers must tell us something… • Quality Management • Could you sell this? • Continuous Improvement • It’s more than just exceeding SLA. • Daily Inspection • Why did you come to work today?

    14. Service Desk Optimization

    15. Optimize Performance Defects Managing Defects at the Desk • Sample: 30+% decrease in invalid code usage

    16. Service Desk Optimization Focusing on People, Processes and Tools yields the following results • Provide quantifiable measurements for Agent, Team Lead, and Manager performance. • Sets uniform guidelines for agent management and performance measurements across all accounts or groups. • Removes ambiguity of productivity measurements and management, based on shift and non phone business support function. • Reduce manual data collection and analysis for Continuous Improvements. • Defines individual agent performance strengths and deficiencies for collaborative team improvements. • Allows for tracking of overall daily account health and performance. • Create a more efficient Agent with a diversified skill set. • Provides leadership with tools to quickly and effectively respond to scheduled and unscheduled changes in work load and call volumes. • Utilizes specialized roles to centralize critical functions performed at Level 1 emphasizing process adherence and continuity in day to day operations.

    17. Knowledge Centered Support • Call-centered support: • Concentrates on call administration • No focus on teamwork or collaboration • No focus on capturing, organizing or evolving valuable content • Knowledge-centered support: • Transitions from a call-centric, transaction-oriented model to a knowledge centric, relationship-based model • Must measure value creation, not just activity • Take advantage of knowledge that emerges from the experience and interactions of the service organization • Teamwork, teamwork, teamwork! • Knowledge is an asset • Knowledge is owned and maintained by the team, not an individual • Focus is to capture and improve the collective knowledge, not just solve individual customer problems • Consortium for Service Innovation, www.serviceinnovation.org

    18. Knowledge Centered Support The benefits of KCS: • Solve Cases Faster • 50 - 60% Improved Time To Resolution • Support organizations without KCS report 60-90% of problems they solve have been solved before, they are reinventing answers and fixes that already exist • 30 – 50% Increase in First Call Resolution • Optimize Use of Resources • 70% Improved Time To Proficiency • 20 - 35% Improved Employee Retention • 20-40% Improvement in Employee Satisfaction • Enable eServices Strategy • 50% Case Deflection (solved via web self-help) • Build Organizational Learning • 10% Call Reduction due to Root Cause Removal • 20% Increase in Lower Tier Resolution • Customer Loyalty • Product improvements based on continuous customer experience and feedback drives customer loyalty with very little wasted effort KCS is not in addition to solving problems, KCS BECOMES THE PROCESS FOR SOLVING PROBLEMS Consortium for Service Innovation, www.serviceinnovation.org
