What Do Telco Consumers Want? eGain to Unveil Multichannel Customer Experience Report at MWC 2012

 
[10-February-2012]
 

SLOUGH, England, February 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --


eGain (NASDAQ: EGAN), the leading provider of cloud and on-site customer interaction software, will publish its cross-industry benchmarking report for multichannel customer experience at the 2012 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The report is based on an independent survey of 3,000 European consumers by Vision Critical on buying behaviour, preferences and customer expectations in telecoms and other service industries. Its findings chart how the evolving relationships between digital channels, service levels and engagement practices influence consumers' decisions at each point of their customer experience journey.

The results hold important implications for mobile and fixed line service providers as they seek to support an array of new services, increase customer retention and boost Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) and Average Margin Per User (AMPU). Findings include:

  • An unclear service offer (or expectation setting) from the provider (e.g. delivery, returns, subsequent contact) is the most likely reason consumers will abandon a purchase.
  • 1 in 5 adults now choose to help themselves through online self service, forums and social media, when seeking assistance with a problem.
  • Over 50% of respondents expect a higher level of customer support when they demonstrate loyalty or pay a premium for a service.

Andrew Mennie, general manager of eGain EMEA, said, "Customer experience has become an important competitive differentiator for service providers. Building that experience requires telcos to move beyond traditional service and integrate support with contextual sales, marketing and social media interactions. This report provides service providers with valuable insight into how best to engage with the changing subscriber expectations across their lifecycle."

A comprehensive analysis of the state of customer experience, the report will include the following:

  • Browser to Customer Conversion:  What it would take for providers to engage and build trust with consumers, based on how subscribers use online self-service, social references and more.
  • Moments of Truth: How consumer sentiment changes as they engage with providers at 'stressful' moments of confusion and failure, including a comprehensive analysis of preferred communications channels and common 'channel hopping' routes.
  • Spend vs. Service: Relationship between consumer spend, service expectation and satisfaction.
  • Telco Benchmarking vs. Other Industries: Experiences of dealing with service providers at different stages of the journey quantified and ranked against best-in-class sectors such as online retail.
