Business Outcomes-based Methodology
Development and implementation of a High Performance Contact Centre Roadmap that is aligned with business outcomes is key to any contact centre transformation plan to ensure the alignment of the people, processes and technology towards the desired business benefits realisation plan.
IPI’s operational practitioners work with our customers to gain an understanding of the key outcomes sought through a contact centre transformation programme and break these down into constituent elements to understand how these will be influenced, measured, implemented and monitored to achieve the improvements targeted.
These elements will be implemented within a prescribed best practice framework, which will provide the blueprint to fulfil our customer’s requirements in some or all of the following areas:
- The people (quality, performance, development)
- The processes
- The technology
- The knowledge
- The organisational structure
- The culture
- The customer experience
Technology Roadmaps & Vendor Selection
As experienced contact centre practitioners we recognise this challenge and respond with a well-articulated view on how you could develop a Technology Roadmap or Target Operating Model (TOM) that would align your people, process and technology towards the achievement of longer term business objectives, whilst also illustrating how this would break down into a manageable tactical plan to begin addressing near term requirements.
Through an understanding of what dials you need to move in your business and by when, we can leverage our experience and understanding of operational best practices and contact centre technology to help you structure a roadmap that would give you a clear understanding of what options are available, which capabilities would be required, quantifying what contribution they would be making towards these objectives and by when.
Consulting as a Service
Consulting-as-a-Service (CaaS) provides structured access to specific domain expertise through an ‘on-demand’ service model.
Often businesses do not have resources to maintain operational excellence whist engaging on business transformation and this is where IP Consulting can help bridge the gap by providing regular access to expertise contact centre practitioners that can add value to your programme on a regular interim basis through an ongoing cycle of operational improvement projects.
Typically based on an annual subscription model. CaaS provides the flexibility to have access to a ‘team’ of experience for less than the price of a single FTE.
Our Discovery Programmes provide our clients targeted application of our broad and deep contact centre industry experience (operations and technology) towards specific challenges or opportunities they seek to investigate. Through these programmes we can identify and qualify options for improvement with recommendations based on industry best practice.
Typically these programmes involve formal problem or opportunity definition, data and operational analysis, technical assessments and benefits realisation models or even workshops and forums.
