* With RightNow, Helio can easily modify survey questions, ensuring capture of the most needed customer feedback. This flexibility has helped Helio increase survey response rates by 900 percent.
* This data helps Helio better understand customers and proactively reach out to unhappy customers to rectify issues.

Comments on Customer Experience in the Telecommunications Industry

“At Helio, we look to use our member’s feedback to continually improve our service. With RightNow we are able to capture their opinions, quickly analyze the data and then take action. Together with RightNow, we are looking to set the bar high for wireless service providers.” Dennis Weikle Vice President, Member Care

“Consumers’ expectations of choice and flexibility regarding their interactions with businesses have never been higher. These expectations manifest in the diversity of their adoption of service touch points to resolve issues. However, companies continue to struggle with satisfying consumers across multiple channels and myriad services. This difficulty is largely due to companies’ silo approach (e.g., lacking unified knowledge bases, interaction histories, reporting, analytics) in managing customers’ interactions.” Customer’s Experience in Telecom JupiterResearch Study Commissioned by RightNow Technologies, June 25, 2007
