St. Louis, MO (U.S.A.) - March 22, 2012 - Pretium Solutions has partnered with the Consumer Lifestyle business sector of Koninklijke Philips Electronics N.V. on a comprehensive customer experience initiative, the Golden Touchpoint™, to boost Net Promoter Score (NPS) and customer loyalty at call centers serving Philips consumers throughout Europe.
The Pretium-Philips initiative focuses on the creation of a “new conversation”
between customer service agents and Philips customers and the engraining of new customer experience skills and behaviors into the fabric of call center operations, along with changes to call center and company process and systems necessary to optimize the customer experience and create sustainable customer loyalty.
After robust discovery and preparation, Pretium has conducted on-site training and intensive coaching of front-line agents, as well as leadership training and coaching of supervisors and managers in Eindhoven (Netherlands)
, Barcelona (Spain), Kingston (UK) and Warsaw (Poland). Each site supports multilingual, multi-cultural and multi-geographic customer populations. Ongoing sustainment plans cover internal coaching, calibration of customer interactions among and between call center sites and online learning modules. NPS for call center support of Philips’ customers in the Benelux countries (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg) has increased by 38% within the first month after implementation of the Golden Touchpoint™ program. The Pretium-Philips initiative has been successful for customer interactions across service channels. NPS for e-mail and chat interactions has increased significantly – a 58% increase for chat interactions in the Benelux countries over a 5-month period, a 90% improvement for e-mail in Poland over a 2-month period, a 72% increase for e-mail in France over a 3-month period, and a 39% boost for chat in Spain over a 4-month period. Further results and details about Pretium’s Golden Touchpoint™ initiative with Philips are contained in the case study available for download via www.pretiumsolutions.com.
As a result of Pretium’s partnership with Philips Consumer Lifestyle and implementation of the Golden Touchpoint™ initiative, interactions between customer service agents and Philips customers have been transformed, and Net Promoter Score (NPS) has increased dramatically and sustainably across the Philips Consumer Lifestyle customer footprint in Europe.
