Big Data Analytics Improves Customer Service for a Leading Multinational Company

Jun 22, 2017


All the queries that a customer asks a call center gets recorded for quality and training purposes. However, not much analysis has been done with this huge pile of unstructured data, which is a major reason driving the need for big data analytics in the call center scenario as companies have realized that these recordings can be used effectively. Natural language processing (NLP) directs customers’ calls to the respective department when a particular word or phrase is said in an order. With the advancement in NLP systems and the intervention of big data analytics, brands can improve customer service and operational efficiency for call center operations.

Big data analytics help call centers improve the customer journey and offer customized solutions to the clients. A detailed analysis of the collated data helps understand customers’ needs and learn the patterns in their query behavior. Quantzig’s big data analytics designs queuing and regression algorithms to estimate arrival rate and service times for inbound calls to improve service levels during peak hours. We also use predictive analytics to identify and improve important services that were negatively affected due to longer waiting times.
