Key features and benefits

Better service at lower cost equals greater efficiency

It’s a simple equation in words but can be daunting when trying to find ways to apply it to your organisation. Contact Centre Efficiency Quick Start is designed to help you identify how to achieve this goal.

The process begins with the Quick Start checklist. Every organisation is different and to reflect that we have developed a checklist to get a snapshot of your current contact centre operations. This provides a high-level starting point to open discussions with your BT Account Manager, providing a clear indication of which areas of your current operations need to be looked at in more detail.

There are two levels of Contact Centre Efficiency Quick Start available, the Quick Start Workshop and the Quick Start Assessment. Your BT Account Manager will work with you to determine which level is most applicable to your requirements.

The first level, Quick Start Workshop, is a high level engagement involving the key stakeholders within your organisation and BT contact centre consultants. It includes a one-day workshop customised for your organisation and aims to draw out the best way to enhance the efficiency of your contact centre.

The second level is Quick Start Assessment. It’s a more in-depth look at your current operations, and typically takes more than three weeks to complete. We will assess your current contact centre operations as well as the ICT infrastructure supporting it. We will identify your current strengths and opportunities for improving efficiency.

Detailed description

Let us come to you

Once you have completed your preliminary checklist, your BT Account Manager will help you decide which of the two Quick Start service levels is going to bring the most value to your organisation.

Level one: Quick Start Workshop

Step one: We send you a questionnaire to give us a foundation to work from, and can identify strengths and weaknesses in your contact centre infrastructure, operational effectiveness and current efficiency levels. The questionnaire also reveals any plans and provisions in place for future enhancements.

Step two: We analyse the information gathered and use it to prepare a structured workshop. We will customize this workshop to meet the specific needs of your organisation.

Step three: We organise the workshop for your senior staff members, reviewing the priority areas that have been identified. We help participants reach a common understanding of the priority issues, and what opportunities are available to improve your contact centre efficiency.

Level two: Quick Start Assessment

Step one: Planning
We start with an audio meeting to agree the timetable of events and who you would like to have involved.

Step two: Initial situation analysis
Through a series of structured meetings, we assess your current situation, including IT architecture and operational status, and any known issues and requirements.

Step three: Conduct assessment
We take you through possible contact centre efficiency models in a workshop environment. With your input, we develop our initial recommendations, based on your business requirements and goals.

Step four: Establish recommendations
We conduct additional investigations and a second workshop to complete the assessment, during which your core team has an opportunity to discuss and review our draft recommendations.

Step five: Present findings
Our findings and specific recommendations for enhancing the efficiency of your contact centres are issued in a final executive presentation.
