CSI Telephone Follow-Up

Customers rave about CRI’s call center

CRI has been providing CSI telephone follow-up services since 1967. Our in-house call center is marked by professionalism, data security, and efficiency. Call center agents are long-term, and are experts at representing your business and uncovering customer feedback. They take a “customer service” approach, not a typical “survey” approach. The agents gather every bit of detail from the customer, apologize on behalf of the client whenever necessary, and then document all comments, which gives you a snapshot of the entire conversation.

Our Follow-up Begins With Several Options for Secure Data Transfer

• Management system polling
• Secure FTP
• Web upload
• XML web services

CRI contacts customers by telephone immediately after their experience, and then reports the results real-time via email and the Internet. The highest contact percentages, coupled with a rapid turnaround time, help clients resolve customer dissatisfaction in an extremely timely manner, which leads to increased customer retention rates.

To ensure a high completed survey percentage, CRI follows a strategic schedule that includes weekday evening calls, blended with weekday mornings, afternoons, and Saturdays. CRI has the ability to leave an 800 number, enabling the customer to call back and conduct the survey on their own time. In today’s world, businesses must cater to all customers, while displaying respect for their time.

CRI has a detailed quality-control process, which translates to the in-house call center agents representing our clients extremely well. At the same time, they gather a large amount of detail on the calls. The CRI call center is always staffed with bilingual agents, and all calls are recorded and available for clients.
