Milgam Group is a project management company providing a wide range of services to municipalities, utility companies, governmental organizations, private and public companies, including the management and operation of customer service call centers and walk-in centers. With 2000 employees across Israel, the company must provide its staff with real-time access to up-to-date information and tools in order to provide a high level of customer service to the public on behalf of its clients.
Call centers are a challenging and demanding work environment. Customer service representatives must be afforded access to customer information in real time, with the ability to search quickly and accurately in the system in order to handle requests while on the phone with the customer.
As a service provider to numerous organizations, Milgam needed to ensure that all data was organized properly, according to the various organizations and their departments, enabling call center staff to provide high levels of service and to maximize productivity.
High turnover of staff at call centers necessitates more efficient and effective onboarding and on-the-job training. This helps to ensure smooth operations even as staff members come and go.
The high level of movement among call center staff, and the fast-paced dynamic of the call center environment, also create a need for staff to engage in online collaboration, to support internal discussions, knowledge sharing and team support, and to help one another manage issues as they arise.
Milgam turned to Blossom to provide a full information management platform that provided all the functionality required for efficient, productive call center operations. Blossom’s platform facilitated a one-stop-shop solution customized for Milgam’s unique needs, with a fast, one-time integration, moving all data over to the Blossom system in one go, to prevent disruption of operations and ensure uninterrupted workflow at the company’s call centers.
