Increase customer satisfaction, reduce service cost with Customer Service Portals

Supply chain is becoming global. Ports & Terminals are the main gateways from which this supply chain moves. Any delay in containers, causes big disruption in customer’s supply chain.

To plan in advance and avoid any disruptions in supply chain, customer expects to get container status 24×7 and from anywhere in the world. With advent of mobility and internet, they expect it to be available on mobile or tab.

Thousands of containers move in and out of terminals every day. With increased competition, terminals are interested in achieving customer loyalty through high customer satisfaction.

Traditional and manual customer support process costs lot of money.  Also it is error prone.  With customer expectations of 24×7 support and sometimes in multiple, languages, terminals have to either spend lot of money or risk of losing unsatisfied customer.

Interestingly, most of the information is available in Terminal Operating System in real time. But without limited access to this information, it remains in information island.

The best solution to increase customer satisfaction, reduce cost is to develop a Customer Self-service Portal.  Such a portal accesses customer required information in real time from TOS and other systems like Billing etc. Such portals are secure, have multi-lingual abilities and available 24×7. Also can be accessed from anywhere from world and from any device.  It can send SMS or emails to customer either on request from customer or pro-actively.
