Internet based call centre
Hi,

I have been contracted to set up a 'contact centre' for a new online company in Aust. As 24hr support is provided via ‘live Text chat' and email, I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction to any vendors they might thinkwould be good to use or to obtain the 'package' from. An ASP is an option as our operators could access it from anywhere. Are there any listings I could choose from or any sites I could visit that would make this task to find one a bit quicker and simpler? Unfortunately I have not been given much time but am grateful never the less to receive this opportunity. Any suggestions would be most welcome!

Regards

Jon

Live text chat
I've used a product called Humanclick (www.humanclick.com) which allows you to add live text chat to your web site. While it is great and easy to use, it doesn't easily facilitate many users, and I have on occasion found it a bit slow.

live text and chat
Hi Jon

What kind of business is the company in? Do the customers expect PC-based support? Maybe phone contact would be best? Have you conducted a study of a sample of your potential custoemrs to see what they would like themselves?

Lots of questions I know, but if the product's audience / customer-base is not technical, there may be resistance to live text and email support. Do you intend to back this up with more conventional contact centre means?

Hi Jim!

It is an online business! Customers will visit the website and order the product, create an account etc! Hospitality themed website for those in the industry. Extensive research has gone into it etc. It will be online soon and basically the "Owners' want top notch customer service i.e. live chat answered ASAP and all emails answered with a 20 min time frame. It is expected that if a customer is having any sort of trouble on the site in any area, that they have access to 24 hr 'live' help at any time!So basically anyone visiting a website to order, create, and browse should be savvy enough to click on the '"click here to speak to a live operator" :-). That is the stipulation that the owners of the site have requested. Phone support is not an option Jim as to keep costs down for both parties. What I like about text chat is that a good operator can handle 3 or 4 inquiries at once after becoming confident in the product knowledge etc. I can set this up ok, but I was wondering if anyone had a good provider to use. I did find a good ASP - get1on1.com who can initially provide this but I was concerned that it will not be sufficient if the site becomes very popular. Just startup nerves I guess! :-)

As I have just been approached with providing the outsourced solution, I will take your advice and get back to the company and get them to do the sample study! Nice one!

Thanks and take care!

ASP/Web Interaction
Hi there

i've had experience of setting up Aspects Web Interaction product which supports

Text Chat
2nd Line Call back
Co Browsing (agent pushing client to pages to cross sell and upsell)
Page Markup

also recently visited a recruitment site www.pertemps.com, whilst I was browsing their vacancies a text chat appeared with an agent asking if I needed help. I can't remember the name of the product but it is clearly indicated on their website when the agent comes in (Iwas impressed with this! and have to say have not experienced that on any other websites to date, it was quite unexpected!)

If you are looking for an ASP, i've recently got involved with an ASP in the UK who have gone to market and are looking to expand their client base, I can send you more details if you wish?

Hi.

I don't see anything wrong with your chatroom John, apart from the little window which tells us who is in there (it doesnt work). I think the idea about scheudling discussions was a good one.

Setting up a web/email enabled call centre
Jon, I've set up a couple of Centres here in Australia that supported web-sites and primarily used email as the communications medium. Am only too happy to chat about it - ph 0408 889 209 (I'm in Brisbane) or email lyn.trewenack@bigpond.com . Lasseter's (the Australian on-line casino) has a good web-chat facility that also pops up a picture of the person you're chatting with as well. Have a look at their web-site.
Regards, Lyn
