In this interview, Simone Engelhardt, SVP and head of Customer Engagement Support for Customer Services & Delivery at Ĵý, discusses the importance of support channels, the 24/7 support structure, service continuity, and best practices for interacting effectively with Ĵý support teams.

Feedback from participants highlights the training’s success in improving the understanding and utilization of support services.

Q: Can you provide an overview of the Support Accreditation training and its significance for anyone engaging with Ĵý’s support processes?

Engelhardt: The Support Accreditation is a vital learning tool for our partners and customers as well as for our employees. It’s an informative course that can familiarize participants with Ĵý support services and help maximize their support experience. This is a unique opportunity to understand all the tools and resources available when interacting with Ĵý support and to learn efficient ways of engaging with our teams and resolving issues.

In situations of urgency or escalation, customers might try to contact someone at Ĵý they personally know rather than follow the regular process. How does Support Accreditation address such situations and educate participants on the importance of following the proper channels?

That’s a great point. In urgent or escalated situations, individuals might feel tempted to bypass the usual channels and seek immediate remedies. However, these uninformed measures can result in delays. The Support Accreditation course emphasizes following the correct Ĵý support processes, which can ensure their issues are routed to the appropriately skilled support teams, leading to more efficient problem resolution.

Can you shed light on how the Support Accreditation training details the importance of our 24/7 support structure and how customers and partners can take advantage of it?

The course thoroughly details our 24/7 support structure. We work to ensure that participants understand how, no matter their time zone, they can harness this around-the-clock support. It’s about making sure that our customers and partners know that they always have the backing of Ĵý, no matter when an issue arises.

How can customers and partners ensure that their issues are addressed efficiently even when their primary contacts at Ĵý are out of office?

We indeed cover this crucial aspect. The training delves into detail about the Customer Support organization, which aims to ensure service continuity even if specific account contacts at Ĵý are unavailable. Our course participants are made aware of the various support structures in place to assist them.

The Support Accreditation training also covers the etiquette and best practices for interacting with Ĵý support. Can you talk more about this and why it’s important?

Interacting with support teams forms a large part of managing Ĵý services, so etiquette and best practices in this area are covered in our course. We guide learners on the most effective ways to communicate with our teams, provide necessary information, and follow prescribed processes for optimal support assistance.

Do you have any insights related to the feedback from Support Accreditation participants? How has the course improved their understanding and utilization of our support services?

Feedback from Support Accreditation participants has been overwhelmingly positive. Our learners report significantly improved knowledge about Ĵý support services and tools, and they’ve been successful in applying this knowledge to engage more effectively with Ĵý support. This has resulted in smoother, quicker issue resolutions, translating to improved satisfaction and service experiences.

With technology and business requirements evolving, how will the Support Accreditation course adapt to these changes? What future developments can participants expect?

The course isn’t static; it evolves with the technology landscape and business requirements. We continually update it to include new tools, offerings, or changes to existing processes. This helps ensure that the Support Accreditation training remains up-to-date and continues to be a valuable resource for our customers and partners. Future developments will certainly involve advancements in AI and machine learning tools in support services, so participants can be well prepared for the future of support services.
