Focus Area: Support Services

Today's support organizations are faced with the task of figuring out how to engage with customers in more proactive ways across more channels than ever before. While support teams are busy focusing on customers, they will be forced to have an even bigger emphasis on streamlining internal tools and processes. Most support organizations already run lean and efficient operations, but they must continue to improve an already highly functioning organization and generate incremental revenue in the process.

TIA works with hundreds of technology companies to gain unique insights that have allowed us to develop the models, tools, and frameworks for how to:

  • Evolve from reactive break/fix support to proactive and predictive services.
  • Grow service revenues.
  • Continuously improve service margins.
  • Innovate the development of new support services that drive customer outcomes.
  • Attract, train, and retain support talent management.
  • Create channel optimization.
  • Develop meaningful voice of the customer programs.
  • Transform knowledge management systems and processes.
  • Create optimal support organizational structures.
  • Implement SaaS support model best practices.
