Education

Goes to School

Take something as tradition-bound as classroom education, upend its flow with a virus that stops in-person attendance, and incorporate digital tools to reach a far larger audience. The result is a reinvention of how learning occurs.

Education's

Digital Transformation

The pandemic has forced a rethinking of how teaching works. The ‘digital transformation’ that is an article of faith in the business world has gone virtually ignored within the mainstream of education. Of the more than $3 trillion spent on education globally every year, less than 3% is for digital tools. Even before the pandemic, research showed that many administrative tasks could be reduced or eliminated – from grading papers and tests to preparation to paperwork – saving time that could be redirected toward teaching. At the same time, technology by itself is not a magic bullet. One global assessment of student performance found that students who used tablets and e-readers in the classroom did worse than those without.

Chat

Users love chat, and we have offered it since our inception. Live chat means customers are interacting with agents, not bots, not virtual programs, not artificial intelligence.

Customers can initiate a chat session from anywhere – work or home, smartphone or laptop, without carving out exclusive time. Live chat done right increases conversions, generates positive word of mouth and delights users.

Voice

Sometimes, customers want to hear another person’s voice in addressing a service or support issue. Our agents are trained to:

Scalable, redundant architecture minimizes hold times. Our goal is first-call resolution, no matter the issue and no matter its complexity. Our reporting systems record calls and track key metrics that determine agent efficiency and effectiveness, and customer satisfaction.

Sometimes, customers want to hear another person’s voice in addressing a service or support issue. Our agents are trained to:

Email

Sometimes overlooked, email remains an ideal channel for tracking issues and their resolution. Email is also a workaround to spoken language issues.

Email is great for providing detailed answers to questions, and easily accommodates links or attachments. It also gives customers a history of the transaction while providing us with a unique level of insight into user concerns.

SMS

There are more smartphones in use than toothbrushes, and there are several messaging apps consumers like. One part of quality service is providing support through the channels your customers prefer

Customers can contact you from anywhere and with text, they don’t have to be online to do it. It’s fast, it’s personal, it’s effective.

Social Media

There is no question that today’s consumer is plugged in, seldom far away from a smart phone and preferred apps. It’s instant communication among consumers, and also between consumers and their favorite brands. Our agents will:

Social media is a high-retention channel. It is where consumers conduct a great deal of their online activity, so much activity that you may have difficulty keeping up. That’s what we’re here for.

WBENC

Service delivery has changed by necessity and RemoteAbilityTM is part of that change. The remote office or employee is becoming increasingly commonplace, and some studies show that working remotely can increase productivity and job satisfaction.

Mysore

A 23,000 square foot center in the growing city of Mysore is our more recent offshore facility. Rich in tradition, Mysore is a favored destination for tourists, drawn by the city’s ornate palaces and heritage structures. It is also a significant education hub with a bustling IT industry that make the city a major software exporter.
