Description of Template
The Call Center SharePoint template helps teams manage service requests originating outside the company from inception through to cause identification, initial solution, escalation and resolution. The template helps track the progress of servicing request, with task oriented pages to display relevant information for each service request and an integrated knowledge base system. Dashboards help management track customer satisfaction with metrics such as issues resolution time, survey results, customer specific dashboards and customer service representative performance.
Using the template, call center representatives initiate a request by visiting the Call Center site to use the “Create a New Service Request” form, selecting the customer from the pull down list. Built in knowledge base and Support FAQ pages can simplify the process of researching solutions to service requests. A service representative can be assigned to the request, ensuring that it shows up on that user’s dashboard of active and open requests which must be attended to.
