On-demand services are synonymous with spontaneity and responsiveness. The biggest challenge for businesses to meet those requirements is to ensure their operational processes are efficient. Businesses need to make sure new agents are onboarded quickly, changes in tasks are handled gracefully in real-time and agents are incentivized and kept motivated to finish the tasks in time with minimal delays.
The key element to achieving high operational efficiency is communication between operations managers and field agents. Communication is a versatile tool and will add value differently for every business. It can be used for quick validation of credentials of new agents or to keep them engaged in lean time or announce bonuses to keep them motivated or to ensure that operations run smoothly. That’s where real-time chat comes in, to act as a communication medium between managers and agents.
Our clients across the globe are using real-time chat in the following ways:
- Onboarding new agents
- Engaging your agents
- Rescheduling and cancellations
- Incentives and Bonuses
- Feedback and other queries
