Work Item Management™

Integrating processes and touchpoints to achieve an enhanced customer experience
Work Item Management (WIM™) from Concurrent Technologies supports the delivery of a consistent customer experience by monitoring touchpoints and business workflows, identifying situations that negatively impact customer satisfaction and organizing the enterprise-wide response.

The Problem

With so many different ways for customers to interact with your enterprise, so many processes supporting each interaction and such heightened expectations for responsiveness, it’s no wonder that delivering a quick, consistent customer experience remains a major enterprise challenge.

  • Customer touchpoints are increasing and growing more complex and now include the phone, e-mail, Web chat, IM, Social media and more.
  • Customer demographics are changing: post-Baby Boom generations raised on new technologies have heightened expectations for anywhere, anytime service.
  • The processes supporting each customer experience, from point of sale or inquiry through management of workflow and delivery of your products/services, must now be more tightly integrated than ever before.

The Solution

Work Item Management (WIM) from Concurrent Technologies speeds and enhances customer service by monitoring communications channels and business processes, identifying situations that require intervention and managing the resources devoted to resolving the situation.

Based on an intelligent work engine developed through years of customer engagements, Concurrent Technologies’ WIM solution effectively allocates resources where they are most needed, where they will do the most good, and in the most effective manner possible.

Adapt WIM to Your Business Processes

WIM adapts and enhances your existing business processes:

  • Automatically converting any order or inquiry into discrete work lists.
  • Allowing you to adapt the system to respond to exceptions, classes of inquiries/orders, specific customers, etc.
  • Balancing workloads based on a wide range of factors including work in queue and skill sets.
  • Providing comprehensive reporting on order status and critical-path deliverables for ongoing monitoring and Resolution of outages and bottlenecks.

WIM standardizes your communications across touchpoints and also provides clear audit trail/documentation for follow-up and compliance purposes.

Focused on Responsiveness and Customer Satisfaction

The result is an end-to-end solution entirely focused on improving enterprise responsiveness and customer satisfaction:

  • A single solution that integrates and enhances responsiveness across departments, processes and geographies, as well as supporting customer self-service options.
  • Specifically addresses situations/exceptions that cannot/are not being addressed by existing applications and processes.
  • Provides a way to identify problem situations and oversee the response, including allocating workloads across globally distributed customer service resources.

WIM Solution Components

WIM consists primarily of two modules—a distribution routing module and a worklist module—that interface with your existing systems:

  • Customer communication channels & customer care
  • Sales, ordering and provisioning
  • Billing, order status and tracking

For implementation, WIM takes account of your business rules, routing rules, user types and hierarchy, e-mail processing configuration, etc. The result is a solution that can be adapted to your needs today and also evolves as your business model and needs change.
