4 Forward from Jacada This is the first year that Jacada conducted a consumer survey and this report highlights our key findings and insights to the customer service industry. Over 500 consumers participated. They were surveyed concerning their behaviors and expectations when it comes to interacting with customer service focused industries such as healthcare, insurance, financial institutions, telecommunications, utilities and retail. Both traditional customer service channels (phone/ivr, website) and newer technologies ( , live chat, mobile apps, virtual assistant, forums, and social media) were explored. Key Findings: In a typical month, 88% of people surveyed had at least one interaction with customer service. 81% of consumers prefer to speak to a live agent, but dislike IVRs and long hold times. Consumers are most frustrated with IVRs when they need to repeat all their information. Consumers' perception of a companies customer service is positively affected when several connectivity options are provided. The survey findings signal that while customers still expect traditional contact methods such as phone support, they also expect an interactive website, , live chat, mobile apps, social media and/or any other options that will solve their issues quickly and on the go. Interestingly enough, getting a hold of the company s call center via the phone is still rated highest. However, since consumer behavior has changed towards a mobile lifestyle, so have the expectations for fast connection options with the company, while on the go. What does this mean for the customer service industry? It is important for consumer-centric companies to adopt solutions that are faster and more efficient; improving quality of responses, decreasing call volume and hold time, and improving customer satisfaction. These solutions should be compatible with internet/mobile devices and be able to seamlessly connect back to the call center with minimal need for repeating information. Noteworthy technologies and tools that are addressing the consumer need for quick, simple solutions include Visual IVR, Live Chat, mobile apps, enhanced websites, and adoption of social media management to address customer service issues. 4

5 Key Findings According to Graph 1, in a typical month 89% of people have at least 1 interaction with customer service. 29% of people have had 5 or more interactions. The interaction could include a call to the customer service center, visiting the company s website, or other forms of online customer service. Graph 1 In a typical month, how many interactions do you have with customer service? None 10.75% % % % 20 or more 8.93% 0% 20% 40% 60% 80% 100% 5

6 Graph 2 indicates that financial institutions (Banks, credit card companies, credit unions, etc.) provide the best customer service, while Cable, Satellite and Phone companies provide the worst service. Graph 2 The best and worst customer service I receive is from: 1=best and is 5=worst My Utilities providers (gas, water...) 2.88 My Cable company 3.51 My Satellite TV Provider 3.18 My Cellular/Phone company 2.89 Retail stores 2.64 Hotels, Airlines or Travel My Bank

7 According the Graph 3, 70% of people said that they have the most contact with their telecom providers. Telecom providers as an industry had the worst score for customer service as evident in the previous question. Meaning, the companies that are contacted the most have the worst customer service. The next closest industry is at 11%. Graph 3 Which company, with a call center, do you contact the most? Telecom (TV, Phone, Internet) 69.77% Financial Institutions (Banks, Credit Cards) 11.63% Technology (Computer, IT) 9.30% Insurance 4.65% Retailers 4.65% The companies that are contacted the most have the worst customer service 7

8 Verizon & American Express were rated best for customer service as evident in Graph 4 while as an industry, phone companies and the banking industry were rated as average and #1, respectively, for customer service. 4 financial institutions were in the top 10. Graph 4 Top 10 Companies Cited for Best Call Center Customer Service Verizon Amex AT&T Delta Air Lines Direct TV Amazon Chase Bank of America Marriot Hotels USAA 8

9 According to Graph 5, Comcast and AT&T were rated worst for customer service. 4 cable companies & 2 telecom companies were in the top 10. Bank of America and Wells Fargo were both rated worst for customer service while the banking industry as a whole was rated as best for customer service (See Graph 2). Telecom as an industry (TV, Phone, Internet) was rated as having by and far the largest number of monthly contacts for customer service (See Graph 3). The top 5 worst companies for customer service were all in the telecom industry (Comcast #1, AT&T #2, Verizon #3, Time Warner Cable #4, Direct TV #5). The industry rated the worst customer service, telecom (As shown in Graph 2), has the top 5 companies listed individually for worst customer service. Further, several companies showed up on the worst and best customer service list including: AT&T, Verizon, Direct TV and Bank of America. Graph 5 Top 10 Companies Cited for Worst Call Center Customer Service Comcast AT&T Verizon Time Warner Cable Direct TV Bank of America Sprint Dell Wells Fargo Cox 9

10 81% of people surveyed would prefer speaking to a LIVE person when calling customer service. 19% would prefer to have the ability to solve the issue themselves as seen in Graph 6. Given the popularity of internet and mobile (tablets and smartphones), companies need to ensure their websites are compatible with mobile phone browsers and offer new technologies such as Visual IVR that presents users with a menu driven interface to traditional IVR. Graph 6 For the majority of customer service calls you make to companies, do you prefer Speaking to a live person ASAP 81.08% The ability to solve the issue yourself 18.92% Companies need to ensure their websites are compatible with mobile phone browsers and offer new technologies such as Visual IVR 10

11 45% would prefer to speak to a live person regarding ANY issue. 50% would prefer to speak to a live person regarding billing or technical issues as seen in Graph 7. These days, customers can call a company from anywhere, day or night. The internet and mobile devices have had a huge impact on customer expectations. This presents new growth opportunities for companies that are willing to offer new services and technologies that will enhance such mobile interactions, lifting the limitations associated with the traditional phone call. Graph 7 For which types of customer service issues would you prefer to speak to a live person? Billing 24.53% Technical difficulties 24.53% General inquiries 5.66% In all cases 45.28% The internet and mobile devices have had a huge impact on customer expectations. This presents new growth opportunities for companies 11

12 Customers prefer to solve certain issues on their own. 50%, prefer to not solve any issue themselves while the other 50% responded that there are issues they want to solve through self-help. 16% wanted to resolve Paying a Bill/Billing issues, 11% technical issues, 9% account information, and 4% returns. A further 7% of customers would prefer to solve all issues on their own. Given the proper support and connectivity solution, self-help is convenient; saves time and money for both the customer and the company, even when the customer ends up calling the customer service center. Graph 8 Which types of customer service issues would you prefer to solve yourself? Billing / Bill Pay 16.67% Technical Issues 11.90% Account Info 9.52% Returns 4.76% All 7.14% None 50.00% 12

13 While 50% of customers preferred to handle some customer issues themselves there does appear to be a limit to the amount of time they want to spend on it. According to Graph 9, the largest group of responders chose 5-9 minutes as the length of time that they would try to solve the problem themselves before calling customer service. Here are the other options: 23% 1-4 minutes, 20% minutes, 10% minutes, 20% 30 or more minutes. What is surprising is that 20% of customers would spend 30 minutes or more trying to solve the issue themselves. This is a positive sign for organizations focusing on expanding selfservice capabilities for their customers. Graph 9 For how long (in minutes) would you try to solve an issue yourself before calling a live customer service % % % % 30 or more 20.70% 13

14 While 30% of users would spend 20 or minutes solving an issue themselves they don't have the same patience when calling a customer service. Their patience for waiting on hold for an agent before hangingup or call-back is much shorter then self-help customers. According to graph 10, 30% of people will hang up in less than 2 mins. of being "on hold." 48% of people will hang up between 2-5 mins. of being on hold. Further, 15% will wait 6-10 minutes and 6% would wait more then 10 minutes. 77% would wait less then 5 minutes. Hence, Companies that make it a priority to significantly reduce call handle times and provide alternate connection solutions to the traditional phone call, should expect to see an improvement in customer satisfaction. Graph 10 How long are you willing to be "on hold" on the phone while waiting for an Agent before you hang-up or want the company to call you back? Less than 2 minutes 29.64% 2-5 minutes 47.97% 6-10 minutes 15.99% More than 10 minutes 6.40% 14

15 As per graph 11, customers find frustration in customer service menu systems for the following reasons: 49% of people are frustrated with customer service phone menu when they have to repeat all their information again. 33% are frustrated when there is no option relevant to their question. A further 9% are frustrated by the lack of a "back" function once a menu number was pressed and 7% found the menus confusing. Companies adding new technologies should check that the solutions are simple for users to use, bridges the connectivity gap between mobile and traditional contact channels, and accelerates the customer service experience. Graph 11 What frustrates you the most when listening to the company's customer service phone menu? No option relevant for my question 33.21% I cannot go back one I "pressed" a number and made a decision 9.19% The menu is confusing 7.50% I cannot enter text 0.56% My customer data provided is outdated 0.19% I have to repeat all the information again if I get connected to the call center 49.34% Companies adding new technologies should check that the solutions are simple for users to use 15

16 Customers report that having several options to connect with the company to solve an issue influences their perception of the company's customer service experience. According to graph 12, 46% said it very positively affected their perception, 35% said it's a nice to have, but there are more important factors, and 17% said it doesn't matter. The bottom line is that having several contact methods available does positively impact the customer's perception of a company's customer service efforts. It is important for companies to look into the preferred contact methods for their customers and keep up to date on the latest technologies that offer and/or enhance connectivity. Graph 12 How does having several options to connect with the company and solve an issue influence your perception of the company's customer service efforts? It doesn't matter to me - one option that works is all I need 17.93% It's nice, but there are more important factors in how I view the company's customer service 35.30% It very positively affects my perception of the company's customer service 46.77% 16

17 Customer expectations of customer service options has changed alongside technology. Users were asked to choose the relevant customer service options that they expected from a company they did business with. The majority, 85% expect customer service phone support. 53% expect support, 45% website customer service, 39% live chat, 19% mobile app, 14% virtual assistant, and social media 10%. When a customer reaches out to a company in hopes of resolving an issue, they expect their needs to be met, and in today's world that means offering a broad range of customer service options. However, some things never changes as evident from the 85.92% that still prefer to use the phone when contacting a company. While traditional contact methods are still ranked highest, we see many mobile, interactive and social media channels gaining popularity. Graph 13 What types of customer service options do you expect from a company? Please choose the relevant one. Phone 85.92% Physical store 32.39% support 53.52% Website 45.07% Live chat 39.44% Mobile app 19.72% Virtual assistant 14.08% Social media 9.86% 17

18 Customers are most likely to use the following contact methods to request assistance or information from companies that they are doing business with, in order of popularity: The phone number listed on the company's website, support, live chat, online self-help, support forum, a mobile application, and a virtual assistant. Traditional contact methods are still most popular as most people will first go to the phone number listed on the website. We see new technologies and interactive platforms emerging. To remain competitive, companies must proactively address this issue and adjust their customer service offerings accordingly. Graph 14 If you have an issue with a company you bought from/did business with, which method are you most likely to use to get help? (rate from 1-7, 1 being the method you are most likely to use, 7 being the metod you are least likely to use) Phone number listed on website 2.42 Mobile application Support forum/ help section 3.92 Online self-help resource Live Chat 3.49 Virtual Assistant

19 Users were asked if they notice the level of technology a company's customer service center uses. 76% of users responded that they did notice it. It is no secret that companies need to be innovative in order to maintain a competitive edge and here we see that innovation also plays a vital role in the customer service experience. While customers will like and prefer certain contact methods based on a variety of factors, they expect the company to offer a level of technology that meets and/or exceeds current standards. Graph 15 Do you notice a level of technology a company's customer service center uses to interact with you? Yes 76.47% No 23.53% While customers will like and prefer certain contact methods, they expect the company to offer a level of technology that meets and/or exceeds current standards 19

20 Users were asked if they would leave a company that doest not provide satisfactory customer service. 92% of people would leave a company that does not provide satisfactory customer service. The survey did not ask the 7% of respondents who answered no if there were multiple business' competing in the users geographic area. Graph 16 Would you leave a company that does not provide satisfactory customer service? Yes 92.48% No 7.52% 20

21 Conclusions Consumer behavior and expectations on the use of traditional customer service methods is evolving and companies must adapt to meet these new expectations if they want to deliver quality customer service. While calling customer service and speaking to a live agent remains the top preference for contacting businesses, in general, consumers are more connected and want to have several options available to them to deal with customer service issues. Timeliness and ease of use are among the top factors that consumers take into consideration when deciding which contact method to use. Common frustrations are long hold times, needing to repeat their information all over again and irrelevant menu options. Take away? The impact that a positive customer service experience has on company loyalty is significant. Companies should note that their customers are judging them by their customer service experience and available customer service options. Companies seeking to improve customer service should be looking to adopt innovative connectivity solutions that offer consumers options for self-help, speeds up the process for the consumer, reduces time for the call center agent, ensures the customer information only needs to be provided once, bridges the gap between mobile, desktop, and telephone, and supports the traditional call-in methods. It cannot go unnoticed that most customers still prefer the phone over other contact methods. Companies should be aware that this experience, often associated with common IVR frustrations, can be greatly enhanced. This is attainable by providing a visual IVR option, for those consumers on the go, in a rush or those who are simply looking for the latest and greatest from their service providers. Timeliness and ease of use are among the top factors that consumers take into consideration when deciding which contact method to use Jacada. All right reserved. 21
