A properly implemented holistic shift-left strategy makes the impossible – possible

Blog: Capgemini CTO Blog

Let’s imagine that providing efficient technical product support is like climbing Mount Everest, and delivering a meaningful customer experience is like undertaking this challenging climb while carrying another person on your back.

But anything is possible, even climbing Everest, if you set clear boundaries at the beginning of any undertaking and have someone to guide you along the way, right?

Overcoming these two seemingly insurmountable challenges requires a solution that provides modern, single point-of-contact services for your global product support that helps you manage your technical inquiries and incidents better. But where can you start?

The quickest way is with a holistic shift-left strategy that resolves more technical support transactions in lower-cost channels, as this is a proven path to accelerating savings when applied across thousands of transactions.

Implement a holistic shift-left strategy – quickly and easily

Any successful shift-left strategy has a number of steps to achieving efficient and holistic technical support that always puts the customer first. These steps include:

All of this, ultimately, leads to improved call resolution times, greater agent job satisfaction, reduced ticket handling times, and increased end-user satisfaction.

Keep your focus on your customers

Keeping your customer preferences in mind is critical if you plan on leveraging automation as part of any new shift-left strategy. Most customers still prefer talking to a real person – as only one-third of them believe virtual agents deliver a better holistic, support experience.

To conquer this challenge you need to bridge the gap between higher efficiency and better customer experiences. You can do this by prioritizing contextual transaction management supported by intelligent automation capabilities, a modern and scalable technical support platform, and a team of experts used to working in a global environment.

All of this can help you develop and implement a technical product support solution based on three pillars:

Holistic and proven shift-left expertise

And leveraging a proper analytics and automation setup that keeps a live agent in the loop ensures the tech support you deliver is not only excellent, but also memorable.

This helps you stay focused on your most important asset – your customers.
