The Challenge with the AT&T LBGUPs Journey?
In 2020, AT&T faced a major challenge as a result of a significant decrease in the number of business customers who signed up for its services. This decline was largely due to several factors, including the lack of self-service options, confusing information about services and usage, and limited personalized options to meet the needs of its clients. These factors made it difficult for customers to fully understand their requirements and find suitable services.
To address these challenges, AT&T has shifted its focus towards reducing the need for hands-on support and promoting automation, self-service and automation. The aim is to provide a more seamless and efficient customer experience, while still delivering the necessary services and support.
What was the goal?
Our objective is to elevate the customer experience for National Business by utilizing all communication channels at our disposal, including digital web, chat, SMS, and voice.
Our aspiration is to establish ourselves as Trusted Advisors for our customers and accompany them through every stage of their customer journey with LBGUPS. We aim to serve as the North Star for customer experiences, offering customers the necessary information and resources to make informed decisions and have a positive experience, without ever having to interact with a customer service representative.
Our aim is to make it possible for a customer to complete the entire process of learning about, selecting, signing up for, and using our services with zero AT&T intervention.
