Large-Scale Productivity and Pinpoint Accuracy Resolve Historic CX Backlog
How we enabled a major airline to manage a customer-service crisis over the busiest holiday weekend of the year.
Huge Backlog of Customer Support Tickets
A major national airline needed immediate CX help. In late December 2022, a national airline experienced a system-wide operational failure due to complications from a crippling winter storm and a scheduling software breakdown.
The severe weather, combined with the system outage, stranded millions of holiday travelers across the country. In the aftermath, 250,000+ customer support tickets needed to be resolved fast.
As it happens, the client and Working Solutions are located within a few miles of each other. And as a good corporate neighbor, we stepped in to provide relief and support during this difficult time.
On-demand, Outsourced CX
In three days, we recruited and onboarded 1,000+ agents to assist the transportation client. Educational materials were streamlined as agents underwent an expedited, virtual-classroom program tailored to the client's needs to handle the customer backlog.
Their quick-turn performance exceeded the client's expectations for efficiency and engagement. The anticipated case completion rate was projected at 10 an hour. Working Solutions, however, increased it by 50% —delivering, on average, 15 closed cases every 60 minutes. And we did it with an accuracy rate of more than 95% to boot.
Within a compressed five-day window, agents closed 250,000+ open customer support cases. Given that success rate, the client then asked for help with escalated cases and duplicates.
As problems persisted, resources were ramped up and down, scaling as needed. More agents were added or reassigned to trouble spots. Continuing education for ongoing issues was implemented. The result: responsive resolutions for customers and the client.
