The SLA Management feature of next4biz tracks and reports the performance of your critical business goals in order to meet service level agreements.
Improve Your Service Value!
Let’s say you’re assigned to a step in the resolution of a customer issue. What happened along the steps of the process before it got to you?
Now suppose that you’re the manager of customer services. Why were the issues delayed? What were the root causes?
In cases such as these, you should monitor all your processes and see what is happening right now, what happened before and what will happen next. More importantly, alert your managers and employees of the delayed processes. Ideally, you need to be able to track SLA’s instantly and automate the escalation schemes if a delay happens. next4biz will meet your needs as your business grows and requirements change and will allow you to easily identify your SLA and escalation schemes.

Are all of your employees showing the same sensitivity towards all types of customer issues? Which team is the most responsive? Which employee is the best-performing in terms of service level goals? Where are the bottlenecks? Who’s getting stuck or delayed?
Thanks to the next4biz escalation protocols, all employees in charge of customer issues can begin to manage their duties more efficiently with a more customer-centric focus.
How does next4biz do it?
With the help of the process design interface of next4biz CSM, you can define an escalation hierarchy. In the case of a delay, the escalation protocol is automatically activated, and the responsibility for resolving the issue will be assigned to the manager in the escalation scheme.
If the resolution continues to be delayed, the responsibility climbs up and the issue will be escalated to an even higher level.
This is truly customer-oriented business culture!
The notification system will automatically send warnings for all action steps as well as alert the relevant employees when a new action pops up, when an action is about to hit its deadline, and when an action has been delayed.
The process-based customer service management platform next4biz’s escalation management function enables organizations to play a crucial role in customer-centric digital transformation. In order to increase sensitivity to customer issues, the escalation map of responsibility, from lowest employee to highest level manager, should be defined step by step.
An escalation supervisor can be assigned separately for each category.
next4biz is also flexible when creating your escalation maps. Through the process design screens, you can easily make categorical definitions and customize the conditions and rules for sending notifications. By using a delegation policy, you can add more agility to your processes while resolving specific cases.
Motivate all employees to create a customer-centric business culture by monitoring and measuring each process and the personal performance of your organization’s employees.
