Servigistics and Sears to Deliver Presentation on Best-in-Class Customer Service at Technology Services World Conference in Las Vegas Oct. 18

Oct 18, 2010, 07:00 ET from Servigistics

ATLANTA, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Servigistics, the only enterprise software solution for Service Lifecycle Management (SLM), announced today that it has been selected as a featured speaker by the Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) at the Technology Services World (TSW) conference and will be presenting "Getting to the Heart of Best-In-Class Customer Service" with Sears on Oct. 18 at 11 a.m. PT.

Sears has the largest field service organization in North America with more than 12 million service calls made annually, 3,000 call center agents and 9,000 trucks. Service is at the heart of Sears' business and making sure that customers' service needs are being met is a top priority. During the presentation, Rob Gibson, general manager of product support, Sears and Damien Choisel, vice president, knowledge management, Servigistics, will discuss how Sears tackled the challenge of decreasing customer service calls by improving knowledge management processes to gain faster issue resolution and a stronger knowledge base for call center agents. Through Servigistics Service Knowledge, a large percentage of Sears' service calls are now being resolved over the phone, eliminating a technician visit. As a result, Sears has dramatically improved customer satisfaction levels and is now exceeding their year-to-date cost savings goal.

Presentation attendees will learn:

  • How Sears reduced the knowledge gap with call center agents to meet their goal of resolving customer service issues that don't need or shouldn't have needed a technician visit resulting in faster problem resolution and cost savings;
  • The service process improvements that help call center agents and field technicians obtain timely and accurate knowledge at the point of service to solve problems that are high in complexity, subjectivity, and often require advanced learning curves; and
  • How improving the post-sale service supply chain strategy can increase customer service levels, give you a competitive advantage and improve corporate performance long-term.

"Presenters at Technology Services World are selected from a long list of applicants," said Trisha Bright, vice president of conferences for TSIA. "Servigistics was selected due to the timeliness and relevance of their topic to our industry, and also because of their strong reputation as a leading-edge organization in our market space. We are pleased to have them be a part of TSW in Las Vegas."
