Excellent customer service through central knowledge management

 

 

As a customer service agent at DPDHL, you want all the pieces of information available exactly when and where you need them. Deutsche Post and Parcel Service has bundled all information related to customer service in their central knowledge platform "MEINWISSEN" using Serviceware Knowledge. Thanks to the new browser integration, customer service can now use content more easily.

"For us, it is not only important to make knowledge available in a fully comprehensive and target group-oriented way, but also to make it accessible as quickly and easily as possible. That's why we wanted to map our consolidated knowledge more contextually in the central application in which our agents process all concerns (Salesforce). This not only makes the work of our employees easier, but also helps our customers to receive answers and information even more quickly.

Serviceware Integrator quickly proved to be a favorite in our search for a suitable solution. Since we already work with Serviceware's knowledge platform, the integration was quick and uncomplicated: existing content could continue to be used in a familiar structure and our agents were already familiar with the basic elements of the solution. The reading of defined fields eliminates unnecessary manual searches. This allows us to further increase service quality while working more efficiently."

Easy access via browser plugin

The Serviceware Integrator browser plug-in makes content available to over 3,500 users exactly where they need it in the respective context – in the same browser where the common customer service applications (e.g. Salesforce) are open. The layover eliminates the need to change systems and can be displayed on the left or right edge of the screen (and hidden at any time), as required. This way, the agent keeps all important information in the customer service application in view and can easily read and understand matching knowledge items in parallel. In addition, the integrator (with appropriate configuration) enables the retrieval of defined fields and the automatic search for suitable information in MEINWISSEN.

 

Objectives:

  • Shortened response times for customers by avoiding system breaks (change from customer service application(s) to knowledge database)
  • Dovetailing of the central (and in future only) customer service application Salesforce with the knowledge database for context-dependent assistance
     

Challenges:

  • Multiple concern handling systems
  • Extensive knowledge repository with more than 14,000 texts and documents
  • High number of employees
  • Over 1 million search queries per year
     

Solution:

  • Introduction of the Serviceware Integrator browser plugin (complementary to the existing Serviceware Knowledge solution)
     

Other benefits:

  • Simple, structured content management by editors
  • Uniform, multi-channel capable knowledge management
  • Uncomplicated technical integration for which only the installation of the browser plugin is required
  • Integration in Chrome and Edge browsers possible (also in parallel without additional effort)
