The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Director of Mass Depot, LLC. Our company has about 40 employees and we work together to serve the e-commerce consumer for the entire United States and some international countries. We are a $50 million company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Staff Outsourcing Solutions?

Our company prides itself in excellent customer service and providing an overall smooth experience. Our challenge was that we only provide one shift, an early morning shift into the afternoon. This puts our customers that send us their questions later in the afternoon on a wait-list to be answered in the morning. The longer the wait time, the more the experience shifts into a negative aspect. We debated on a skewed shift for customer service, but our employees enjoyed their current shifts as one of the great benefits of the job. We needed to find a way to have the customers taken care of even while we weren't in the office.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed somebody available when we weren't and as an end goal create a chance of opportunity to move our current in-house customer service employees into better positions.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We actually came across this company as a recommendation from another local company we've kept in touch with. We happened to come across the issue as a conversational topic. We met with the right people and the decision was made quick to get a solution rolled out.

Describe the project in detail.

I set up an easy to follow onboarding process in preparation of our new SOS employee. It just needed an update for somebody who has never touched our products or messed with our system. (We previously only promoted employees who had been with us for a while into the customer service position, so it was never an issue) Once onboarded, the new SOS employees adapted impressively quick and were able to answer customer questions in fluent English for all of our marketplaces including our own website.

What was the team composition?

Our now current team is composed of 1 SOS customer service employee for this project (We hired from them again for other projects) and 1 in-house customer service manager. We manage the SOS customer service employee directly, provide them with clear direction and they take care of it without issue. Now we can answer customers 16 hours per day, and this can be extended if needed with an additional hire.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We now get less customer tickets due to our SOS employee being able to provide a catch all answer in the first response. This dwindled down back and forth messages to a fraction. There were improvements in our response times, resolution times, and overall experiences. This led to us extending their responsibilities to more than just tickets to better aid with customers. Our in-house employees were also able to move up into better positions which led to us making more of a profit than what we've spent with their services

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

There is excellent communication between both parties, this has never been an issue. So much so, that I never thought about it previously. We use Reply Manager as a tool to manage all our customer tickets in one location. I think this is a major key in making it easier for all parties.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

There was quite a first impression left by how fluent in English their employees could speak and type. They were quite adaptable to our needs as well.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There's never a truly "perfect" rating for anything, but I think Staff Outsourcing Solutions came as close as possible.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

Why does your firm need inbound services? Did you previously handle these needs in-house?

These services help my business be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction. I frequently change it up to get the latest version.
