Interactive Discussion - Enhancing Careers by Sharing Experiences:
End of Session
Helping CSPs maximize ROI in mobile networks using Digital Network Deployment solution and services, supported by a cloud-based construction management platform, managing the complexity of the deployment and driving excellence in the supporting workforce and supply chain.
As today’s communications service providers (CSPs) work to deliver digital video and other high-bandwidth applications, network quality is ever more critical to delivering on customer expectations. Accenture Service Experience Engineering & Management (SEEM) transforms traditional monitoring into a more service-driven methodology. It’s an integrated approach that enables CSPs to address customers’ increasing quality requirements in real time, while maximizing the value of network investment.
For CSPs, network customer service is key to customer satisfaction and reliability. But the frustrations with field force service just keep on growing, leading to dramatically growing churn. Field Installation and Repair Services Transformation establishes a Command Center supporting CSPs’ transformation process in this area, running the installation and repair process from customer care through field operations.
