Customer Service Balanced Scorecard vs. KPI Scorecard

It can be worked by:

  1. A customer or a prospect client has a question about your product or service.
  2. A customer goes to the website and searches for the solution in the knowledge base, or
  3. A customer is contacting your company via a contact form, social networks, or phone call. First-line customer support specialist is trying to answer the question. If the problem is a tough one, then the issue is transferred to the second-line agent.
  4. A company is learning: the product is improved; the knowledge base is updated if needed.
    • Addressing Step 1: Make the product more user-friendly so that the customer would have not faced this problem, and respectively would have not contacted you, at least not with this issue
    • Addressing Step 2: Making the knowledge base easier to use so that customers could solve more problems themselves
    • Addressing Step 3: Train your first-line agents so that more of the difficult problems could be solved without transferring them to the 2nd line specialists
    • Addressing Step 4: Make sure that there are no informational silos between customer service and other business units.

We can put these goals on the strategy map to reflect the cause-and-effect relationship between them. We can also add more details, and align them with the goals’ proper metrics.

3. Develop a questionnaire designed to collect some customer feedback that is related to the KPIs and/or designed to uncover identifiable gaps between services provided (including the quality of service) and customer expectations.
