Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
SupportYourApp sends me year-end reviews for my support tickets. Other than this, I have gauged their effectiveness through my churn rate and the growth of the company. We have been climbing uphill, while our support needs have been going down; so from a founder's perspective of doing support personally, I have appreciated being able to focus on my company and not worry about having too many users.
How did SupportYourApp perform from a project management standpoint?
I've worked with a project manager from SupportYourApp. He onboarded me into their company and created a Skype group which I can use for any questions outside of the scope of regular services. If I have questions about our CRM, for example, SupportYourApp's team will be there for me. My manager has overseen the team's performance and availability, which gives me peace of mind.
What did you find most impressive about SupportYourApp?
SupportYourApp's communication skills are impressive, which is a huge topic for a support company. If I ever have any questions, I can go to my contact and have it answered. SupportYourApp has listened to our customers' suggestions and relayed them to me, so the service is paying for itself.
Are there any areas SupportYourApp could improve?
At first, I wasn't sure how using a specialized firm could work. SupportYourApp's team has had some turnaround, but they've handled the training process by themselves. I've only trained the first users; that information has been recorded and expanded since. I wasn't sure in the beginning if this could work and thought that I would have to keep training people, but it hasn't happened.
What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with SupportYourApp?
I would make sure I had a clear understanding of what I was looking for out of the support team. This always changes, but having a document to present to SupportYourApp is important. Once the work gets going, they need to understand their role and maintain open lines of communication. A hands-on relationship with customers is extremely important for the growth of a business. |
