The system is intuitive, it has a lot to offer from both user and admin perspective in relation to a knowledge management tool.
In order to deal with the rapid growth of their organisation, the need for better document organization became more urgent. Early on they realized the importance of providing their customers with really a high-quality customer experience. In the insurance industry queries can be more complicated therefore they needed to find a way to simplify the experience both for customers and call center representatives. In addition, there was an urgent need to ensure that information passed on between the agent and customer was always accurate and correct. The only way to ensure that was by implementing a knowledge management system across all entities in order to guarantee accuracy and full transparency between their teams.
BGL Group selected Lighthouse to serve all their call center representatives in order to ease their work process. Within a short period of time KMS Lighthouse helped BGL Group build a very robust and reliable knowledge base. This includes building decision trees that enables them to clearly define their work processes and understand each stage within the KM system. The feedback tool is also helping employees to actively share suggestions and engage with the content. Content updates and briefings are easily shared with defined teams. BGL Group also took full advantage of the authorization controls that are now heavily used to ensure different teams have access to their relevant areas of content. With these features, representatives are able to easily search on demand in real time during calls with customers.
Implementing this knowledge management system has had a hugely positive impact on the employees’ work experience and efficiency.
