The city of Rotterdam wants to improve the service they offer to its citizens. With so many calls coming in from all types of demographics in the city it’s important to be able to service everyone equally. Technology allows for a much better individualization in this process, how can we use technology to service a bigger spread of different needs? At the same time, the 180 people who are servicing these calls are just as important as the technology they work with, how can technology make their work more pleasant and give them better opportunities on the future job market? We pursue 2 goals:
• Excellent service by telephone for the city, eg. real solutions via warm contact.
• Giving opportunities for people who are unemployed to gain experience and learn a trade to become independent.
Directions for solutions can be:
EASY ACCESS TO JUST THE NECESSARY KNOWLEDGE
Using new possibilities to get easy access to just the necessary knowledge so we can give the correct answer in 98% (now it’s about 92%), in less time.
TRAIN AND COACH THE CALL AGENTS
Using new possibilities to train and coach our agents on communication skills, and spread new information/procedures fast and accurate.
