    23. 23. Feedback = Action Load balance resources and technology from the two call centers to better handle call volumes Hold times were too long when calling Customer Care Creation of the Customer Project Coordinator role. One is assigned to every order. A single point of contact is needed for multi-market installs Implemented a single service number and easy to follow prompts for all customer service needs What number do I call for different issues? Development of easy to use, comprehensive customer portal - MyPortal Self service options for accessing information or making basic requests would help us save time Redesign of documentation. Limit to only pertinent information in plain English with acronyms defined. Your status documentation is confusing and full of jargon Email and phone call after every ticket is closed. Sign-off from customers to ensure everything is completed to their satisfaction. You need to let us know when our ticket is closed Increased number and frequency of status, tied compensation to status targets Frequent and accurate status is important during maintenance/repair How We Responded Customers Told Us
