National Residential Alarm Monitoring Organization Leverages Impact 360 Solution to Enhance the Customer Experience
DALLAS, TEXAS and MELVILLE, NY, May 20, 2008 – Monitronics, one of the nation’s largest providers of residential alarm monitoring, announced today its deployment of the Impact 360® Workforce Management solution from Verint Systems Inc. and its Verint® Witness Actionable Solutions™ business line. Focused on providing optimal customer service and support to its more than half a million customers, Monitronics conducted an extensive evaluation, selecting Impact 360 based on the company’s solid reputation and product quality. It was determined that the software’s ability to help improve the efficiency and productivity of call center employees and processes would enable Monitronics to meet its business needs in the most flexible way.
“The key components to successfully implementing a workforce management strategy are the ability to measure, monitor and manage the performance of all agents equally,” says Mike Haislip, President and CEO at Monitronics. “Shift scheduling and workforce management tools allow our call center managers and supervisors to achieve these objectives.”
“With Impact 360 Workforce Management, our call center team can better forecast, and develop more accurate planning and improved scheduling. The additional data helps us staff the right number of agents, with the right skills at all times.” Haislip adds, “We see great value in the data collection and reporting capabilities offered by Impact 360, and look forward to further synchronizing our performance optimization initiatives to achieve our revenue and service objectives.”
Monitronics handles inbound and outbound customer service, sales and technical support in its 450 seat Dallas-based call center. The Impact 360 software allows Monitronics to staff each department properly and leverage performance management scorecards, both of which improve its service delivery and ability to meet or exceed customer expectations. The company also is focused on operational efficiencies, process enhancements and staff performance through the agent adherence capabilities within the solution. Further, Monitronics call center supervisors are leveraging Impact 360 Workforce Management to assist in scheduling agents during peak call times, leading to better call handling, lower call abandonment, higher service levels, increased revenue and improved customer satisfaction.
“Before having access to the full capabilities provided by Impact 360, we experienced higher handle times than we’d like. In part, this was due to not having an adherence view of our agents and a real-time tool to assist in the balance of calls and agents,” says John Mejia, Vice President Monitronics, Customer Care. “With our new workforce management solution, we’ve changed the way we forecast and allocate our time to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.” About Monitronics
