customer service is the focus

Customer service is the focus ending the year at OPS-COM

Customer service is key to a successful business, and as another year has come and gone we’re looking back on the past 12 months.  Here at OPS-COM we’ve done some pretty exciting things so far in 2017, the one we’re most pleased about is based on the feedback we’ve received for our customer service team.

Every OPS-COM client has a choice of support packages with the most popular being the Standard Plus package that includes multiple ways they can access our customer support team.  We continually assess the support our customers receive by asking for feedback after a support ticket.  And this year, the data shines.

In 2017, our two key customer support team members, Justin and John, did some things we’re pretty proud of:

  • Provided a combined 841 hours of support to our clients; approximately 21 full weeks
  • Average response time of 15 minutes
  • 100% of received feedback rates their service as Great or Amazing

On a customer service mission

The roles Justin and John fill are fundamental to what the entire team at OperationsCommander does.  It’s our corporate mission to provide parking and security management software that is both technologically advanced and easy to use.  So, if our clients struggle with something, we’re not fulfilling our mission.  That’s where Justin and John step in to get clients past the struggles and back to using the system effortlessly.

Other great things in 2017

Customer support is also about answering questions, training and supporting new features and releases of the OPS-COM platform.  And 2017 saw a number of system enhancements that made the technology better and the client experience easier.  Here are just a few:
