How ServiceNow CSM Offers Innovative Customer Service Management Solutions

ServiceNow CSM Team discussing on Customer service issues

In today’s globalized business environment, offering better customer service stands out as the key competitive edge. In the era of consumerization and experience-as-a-service, engaging with customers is not what makes a service great, it is just beyond this. Businesses started to understand how the service is delivered matters the most.

In this process, ServiceNow CSM helps businesses with innovative customer service management solutions, to achieve better customer satisfaction levels and reduce customer retention, at reduced operational costs.

 Issues Hindering Customer Satisfaction

  • The disengaged business processes and systems will not be able to locate the origin of the issue, which results in a bad customer experience.
  • The volume of service requests across multiple, disjointed engagement channels is growing
  • Usage of laborious manual processes are time overwhelming and lacks transparency in the entire requests to resolution journey
  • The number of service requests across numerous and disconnected engagement channels is rising.
  • Various and disintegrated support systems lead to in inconsistencies in customer experiences.
  • Inadequate self-service options leads to customer as well as agents to get upset.

ServiceNow CSM: Requests to Resolutions

For every 10-percentage-point uptick in customer satisfaction, a company can increase revenues 2 to 3 percent."

- The Four Pillars of Distinctive Customer Journeys, McKinsey

Customer service demands more than what typical Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems deliver. To provide high-quality service and succeed, organizations must offer an effortless experience by connecting customer service to the other parts of the organization, so they can work together to identify, fix, and even avoid issues.

An innovative approach is looked-for. The modern customer service organization works with teams across its firm to fix problems for many customers at once instead of addressing issues one-at-a-time. They respond faster to customer worries with real-time solutions and  they move beyond day-to-day demands to deliver proactive strategies that drive real business improvement and growth.

ServiceNow CSM can deliver services effortlessly, with more connectivity, and proactively, thereby resulting in improved customer satisfaction at reduced case volumes and costs. Offering agility in the inter-connectivity of customer service departments with other business department and teams help businesses to offer quick and proactive resolutions.
