Economic and competitive pressures, combined with strong workforce regulatory obligations, have adversely impacted the rapidly growing Latin American division of a major credit reporting agency. Following years of strong growth, a national economic downturn created pressures on company revenues due to diminished consumer sales and competitive price discounting. Additionally, expenses continued to mount attributed to extensive regulatory requirements imposing increased workforce obligations on employers. Faced with these challenges, the client turned to The LoBue Group to evaluate and implement opportunities to improve operational inefficiencies, sales and customer service, as well as identify and enact cost savings opportunities.
After a thorough analysis, our recommended solutions centered on re-engineering the Data Operations and Client Services divisions, focusing on three key areas: Branch Network, Contact Center and Data Operations. This intensive program included an organizational re-design, functional re-alignment, process improvement, development of staffing models and performance management training in addition to:
Centralization of Sales Support functions.
Rationalization of Product and Sales Support processes.
Performed contact distribution analysis and robust staff modeling to match work force strength against call arrival rates, improving work force utilization and stabilizing performance on key service indicators.
Developed training for multi-skill contact center agents to improve load balancing, workforce utilization and reduce headcount requirements.
Improved Contact Center shrinkage, productivity and customer experience through refined system access management.
Established technical help desk for system support providing dramatic internal and external customer benefit.
Deployed extensive performance and service management program for Contact Center agents and managers.
Restructured Operations with robust shared service, analytic and autonomous operational platforms.
Performed facility layout plan aligning end-to-end process groups for improved scheduling and workflow management.
Instituted “Best Practice” manuals documenting recommended process, procedure and service standards for all operation functions.
Through full implementation of the recommended program, the client received enhanced service and operational platforms with re-engineered processes across all functional areas, demonstrating a reduction in overall operational capacity by 20%. These efforts yielded significant run rate savings, producing 24 times ROI over three years. Additional benefits are expected to be derived from improved client service initiatives, enhancing the customer experience to strengthen revenue opportunities.
