Situation

Contact centers are among this supply chain and logistics company’s most significant expenses. It’s also among their greatest growth opportunities. With an eye toward improving its bottom line profitability, this company needed to improve contact center performance in many key areas. The task wouldn’t be easy. Agent turnover was high, there was little time for tenured staff training, and customer- and agent-experience scores were trending downward.

With XSELL the company quickly understood that they needed to empower and energize their agents with a flexible and supportive tool to help them be one step ahead in every unique conversational path. XSELL proved to be a solution agents prefer, and the bottom line loves.

Challenge

The company asked itself three tough (and necessary) questions:

  • Can new hire agent performance match seasoned agents (improve speed to proficiency)?
  • Can we make tenured agents better?
  • Can we lower attrition?

Answering yes to even one question would positively impact this supply chain and global logistics company’s profits. Achieving two out of three would be a massive success. Getting all three to happen was possibly beyond practical expectations. Lowering attrition would be especially challenging. “The great resignation” was in full effect with 80-85% annual attrition rates across three outsourced contact center partners. That said, in business, you fail by setting the bar low.

The XSELL real-time coaching solution successfully addressed all three questions and spoke volumes about its effectiveness.

  • New hire agents’ sales increased by 43% vs. prior new hire classes
  • Attrition decreased by 40% post-XSELL deployment
  • Tenured agent sales improved by 33% compared to their historical performance

Solution

XSELL was asked to implement a solution supporting agents selling business-to-business services to new and existing small business customers. The primary goal was to answer the three core questions (improving new and tenured agent performance while lowering attrition). If possible, they also wanted XSELL’s solution to capture more of the audience’s wallets by positioning this company as a preferred partner over industry competitors.

Using machine learning, artificial intelligence algorithms, and human authenticity, XSELL detected the company’s top-performing agents’ most effective actions, tactics, and strategies. XSELL scaled these into roadmaps that would support new and tenured agents in real-time.
