Avoid customers to wait when you are absent

Support tools are the point of contact with customers in operating the service, so you must be careful not to be rude. Here, we will focus on 5 functions of ChatPlus, in order to reduce the waiting time of customers when preparing a chat window. 

Average connection time and customer satisfaction are tightly related

Didn't you have the experience of waiting when calling for support? There are numerous services like phone line company, airline company, or e-commerce company with which we are sure you have at least once got frustrated because you was not connecting to agents for a long amount of time.
There are many elements that can be called support window. One and main is call center, for which a survey has been made in 2015 and asking for [What caused you stress when calling for support]. It appeared that the factor the most related to customer support was [the average time until I'm connected].
When preparing a support center, you would always think about the creation of manuals for agent, or How to talk to a customer, however, the most related and important thing for customer satisfaction is ASA [ASA: Average Speed of Answer)]. And you can say the same thing for chat window. According to a statistics data we acquired, the thing that is most important to customer satisfaction was [ASA].

Therefore, in order to operate customer support in high level, it is important how fast you can respond to customer's request. It is important to keep high SL (Service Level) to show how it can be connected easily, and the CS (Customer Satisfaction) is directly related.
Generally, most of customers would end the connection if there is no  answer or call within 30 seconds.
The longer you make the customers wait, the more they have frustration, and you might make customers angry just for waiting.

In ChatPlus, we minimize ASA using four functions like chatbot, offline reception etc. At the same time, we set to automatically change to offline when the agent is absent, and reduce ABR (Abandon Rate).
