AmeriGas selects Message Technologies, Inc. (MTI) to provide hosted IVR services.
ATLANTA, GA–For Immediate Release
With over two million customers in all 50 states, AmeriGas provides the most reliable, safest, and responsive propane service in the nation. Committed to customer service and loyalty, AmeriGas saw MTI’s IVR offering as the right tool to maintain their focus on customer service and personal attention to each customer.
“We wanted to implement IVR solutions that would provide the best possible experience for our customers”, said Andrew Hertzog, Marketing Product Manager of AmeriGas. “MTI has delivered everything we were looking for in a partner.”
AmeriGas required a complete communications solution that would advance the company’s ability to serve its customers. The IVR system was designed with customer ease and friendliness in mind. In addition to a user friendly front end, a custom web portal was created for the AmeriGas team to gain insight into the performance of the system and the overall customer experience. Using the web portal, AmeriGas managers can also listen to the customer-agent interactions, allowing for ongoing tuning and training. “Our solutions allow AmeriGas to achieve greater results with their customer care strategy by reducing operational costs and maintaining their focus on top notch customer service. By providing quick, accurate information and routing calls to live agents when needed, we are able to improve the call center’s productivity”, said Justin Simkavitz, President of Message Technologies.
With common inquiries now being handled by the IVR system, call center agents are now able to focus on higher value inquiries. The capabilities of the MTI platform and the ability to provide custom solutions gives companies like AmeriGas a way to differentiate their business with first-class customer service options.
