Since January 2010, Reno-Assistance has helped its residential and commercial customers free of charge with their renovation and construction projects. Through their process, an experienced renovation advisor learns about the project, answers the customer's questions, refers 360° Verified contractors (general or specialized), compares their quotes with them and even advises the customer in the case of a dispute with their contractor.
As Reno-Assistance was started after its founder had gone through several general and specialized contractors for his various projects, losing tens of thousands of dollars, the human side and proximity to the customer was a very important aspect the company wanted to offer.
Reno-Assistance wanted a solution where the customer and the advisor would not have the impression that a telephone separated them. The quality of the verbal communication was a crucial factor. As the company approached Ubity in its early stages and was growing rapidly, they also needed a flexible solution that could grow with them and that provided a service that appeared local without having to open offices in all four corners of the province.
With its IP telephony solution with HD Voice, Ubity offered the best sound quality possible for the future. Also, by offering local numbers from several major cities in Quebec, Reno-Assistance could appear closer to their customers.
As they have grown, contact center solutions have become increasingly useful and are now part of their daily lives.
Even though Reno-Assistance does not like to see itself as a contact center, advocating the quality of interactions between customers and advisors before call statistics, the dashboard displayed on screens inside the offices allows to see in real time the availability of advisors.
"Managers can ensure that customers are promptly responded to in order to meet our response guarantee in 60 seconds or less. Reports and statistics also help ensure that advisors communicate with their clients and provide high quality service."
Paul André Bégin
Availability of numbers
Reno-Assistance has a local number for Greater Montreal customers, but also a local number for customers in Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec City, Saguenay, Sherbrooke, Gatineau, and Trois-Rivières. The company also has toll-free numbers with an initial response in French or English
the region. In addition to customer numbers that provide faster access to renovation consultants, there are other numbers available for businesses that want to join their network of certified contractors.
"By making a code, our advisors can display the local number of their choice on the client's outgoing call display, which has allowed us to create a sense of closeness without having to open offices in all cities."
Call recording is used for training and to ensure that the company offers a high quality service, while the availability functions allow the company to offer a guarantee of response by a human in less than 60 seconds.
"Ubity's tools allow us to listen in real time or offline, which facilitates training. Advisors sometimes ask us to listen to calls that did not go so well to understand what they could have done better - allowing continuous improvement"
