Technical customer service:
Knowledge transfer for ideal service on site
Technical customer service (also called field service / after sales service) is under enormous time and cost pressures. Internationally operating customers expect competent local customer service worldwide.
Service organisations face the challenge of keeping pace with technological developments and globalisation. Internationalisation of the market requires knowledge to be available in different countries, languages, skill levels and cultures and to be leveraged to provide high-quality services locally.
Not least, demographic change is becoming a challenge. The process of generational transition has begun, and experts are taking their knowledge with them when they leave the company, for example due to retirement. That comes on top of the existing fluctuation of service staff at the company. This loss of knowledge is difficult to compensate for, since it takes a very long time to train service employees. At the same time, qualified junior staff is rare and the shortage of skilled employees can be felt.
Buzzwords like smart factory, remote service, Industry 4.0 and The Internet of Things mean that service processes need to be automated. An important step in that direction is to integrate knowledge in the business processes in question. After all: the greater the degree of automation, the better.
