TORONTO, Feb. 1, 2019 /CNW/ - Scotiabank's technical help desk and support centre for business banking customers, Client Services & Solutions (CS&S), has achieved Contact Centre World Class CX Certification by SQM Group for customer service excellence.
This award means that at least 80% of customers contacting CS&S were very satisfied (top box response) with their overall help desk experience, their customer service representative and overall resolution of their call.
CS&S provides technical support for the Bank's cash management customers across the small business, commercial and corporate segments. Their services include technical integration, professional services and project management for complex cash management needs, as well as treasury platform integration.
"Payments and cash management products play an increasingly important role as the back bone of many business banking relationships which is why we strive to deliver a world class experience," said Rania Llewellyn, Executive Vice President, Global Business Payments. "With the evolving technology landscape in payments and cash management, Scotiabank's Client Services & Solutions team provides advanced technical support to businesses of any size and helps deliver enhanced operational efficiencies."
Over the last two years, CS&S has undertaken several initiatives to improve the customer experience, including an Enhanced Support System which provides Bank employees with real-time customer data and a robust employee training program including customer service resolution tactics and best-practices.
"SQM Group designates contact centres as World Class based on customer experience performance levels", said Nader Ghattas, Vice President, Consulting and Client Advocacy, SQM Group. "Scotiabank's technical help desk and support centre for business customers met our stringent criteria and is one of fewer than 5% of the 500+ contact centres that SQM Group benchmarks annually."
SQM Group benchmarks over 500 leading North American organizations. The criteria for Contact Centre World Class CX Certification is based on 80+% of customers who have their issue resolved on the first call for three consecutive months or more.
