Social Media

Customers are beginning to demand more than ever and are increasingly looking to be served via their interaction choice at a time that suits them. Contacts Centre’s are required to provide the interaction framework for customers to allow flexibility and choice.

Social Media still represents a very low level of customer interactions but it does provide an environment for customers to make their experience public and therefore due to its far reaching nature Social Media is seen as one of the key interaction choices.
At Blackstar we work with technology that allows the implementation of a Social Media strategy within a framework to provide the analytics and metrics required to ensure a successful solution is adopted.

Business Analytics

Customer service has always been an essential part of any organization, but with the progression of technology and the advent of social media, keeping a customer happy is more important than ever before.

Effective reporting and actionable management information is fundamental in enabling your Contact Centre to make informed business decisions that will help drive your business towards becoming an award-winning contact centre operation.

At Blackstar we work with technologies that provide the essential operational contact centre metrics that can be viewed both historically and in real time. Reporting suite flexibility means that you can create and schedule reports that can be automatically distributed.

PCI Compliance

The PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) overarching aim is that cardholder data must be protected and that authentication data should not be stored anywhere on the company’s systems. Unfortunately, many methods of PCI compliance detract from a focus on customer service because they interrupt workflows or leave a caller to navigate payment unassisted.

Our solution is based upon the award winning Semafone solution. Semafone’s software application allows contact centres to remain in voice communication throughout the payment process, even while the customer enters card details into their telephone keypad.

Semafone masks the DTMF digits entered by the caller so they cannot be heard by the call centre agent nor captured on the call recording system.
