Networking and IT Managed Services Provider to Extend Successful SupportPoint Deployment from the Call Center to Service Delivery

Panviva Inc, the leader in business process guidance (BPG) solutions, today announced that Colt is expanding its usage of Panviva’s SupportPoint ® solution. Initially deployed to improve call center efficiency and accuracy, SupportPoint will now be used as a tool for delivering critical work instructions and guidance in other areas of Colt’s business.

Colt is Europe’s leading information delivery platform, delivering integrated networking and IT managed services to business customers. Colt operates a pan-European network and data centers and aims to improve Colt’s customer experience by applying an ITIL-based framework across the integration of Colt’s network and managed services operations, technology and IT experts. The company deployed SupportPoint originally to optimize their multilingual Shared Service Center operations, where both customer-facing staff and technical experts required fast access to accurate information in a highly-complex environment. SupportPoint has enabled Colt to standardize on sets of best-practice work instructions with relevant content for each type of task, and provide that as real-time, on-the-job guidance according to each person’s role. A central business process team at Colt operates as a shared service to the business units, defining new instructions and developing and maintaining content as new roles are added.

Russ Auty, Business Process Specialist at Colt, explained; “SupportPoint has made a significant impact in customer service operations and our team loves it.” He continued, “We are now looking to use SupportPoint as our base tool for delivering high-priority work instructions and guidance in other areas of the business. We have a large team within Colt that is responsible for delivering our solutions to the customers’ premises. Their work involves very complex technical instructions. Using SupportPoint to provide tested, identical instructions to every member of the team, we can ensure that the work our people are doing is accurate and consistent, no matter where they are doing it, and that we keep on delivering best-in-class customer experience.”

“SupportPoint is the ideal solution for companies that need to manage complex, highly- technical information and work processes in business-critical environments,” according to Stephen Pappas, VP global sales and alliances at Panviva. “Provisioning new network services is expensive and exacting work, where errors and rework drive costs up and customer satisfaction down. SupportPoint enables companies to standardize on one way to perform each step in these exacting delivery processes, and to ensure that projects are accurate and in compliance. The results are faster time to market, at lower cost, with SLAs met and exceeded.”
