  • Data collection and tagging: Following an interaction, the data can be used for post-call analysis and further service improvements
  • Delivering actionable insights: The implementation lays the foundation for real-time analytics to deliver actionable insight to the agents during the call
  • Customer experience transformation: By pinpointing the drivers of customer interactions and the underlying causes of dissatisfaction, Firstsource can boost agent performance, rectify shortcomings, and amplify strengths in processes and service delivery to transform the customer experience
Rajesh Subramaniam, Managing Director and Chief Executive Office, Firstsource Solutions Limited, said, “The dynamic nature of the marketplace is helping us constantly look at innovative ways to enrich customer experiences for our clients and this in turn is helping positively impact their business metrics.
