A customer service dashboard keeps track of the open and outstanding cases based on priority and request type. It also provides insight into on average how quickly cases are resolved based on the customer service representative and highlights issues that may have remain unresolved for long periods of time. After a customer is serviced, the feedback score also highlights the relative performance of the customer service representative. This could allow the team manager to take decisive actions to address and correct issues to improve the overall branding and image of the company.
Customer service is a key interaction point between the business and the customers. Having a good customer service results in greater customer retention and loyalty. Having a customer service dashboard provides key insights into the overall health of the customer service team.
For example, if there is a sudden influx of customer service request due to larger increase in sales, it can be quickly identified and more recruitment would be necessary to cope with the demands. This level of responsiveness enables all customer's issues to be resolved at the earliest possible time.
With hundreds or thousands of requests, having an overall picture provides better understanding on the areas to tackle. For example in a SaaS business, there may be certain features which is experiencing issue. This can be feedback quickly to the development team, which could put up a quick notice on the page where user interacts so as to reduce the number of feedback. This allows the development team to quickly work on resolving the issue, while ensuring that the customer service team respond to other more important requests.
