Self Service provides a comprehensive set of features for offering online sales direct to the Customer. The Online Store allows new and existing customers to sign up online for specially designed online packages or to configure their own package using dynamic product filtering and guided basket processes. Online packages may contain a single product / service, or a bundle of multiple products as defined in the Cerillion Enterprise Product Catalogue.
The Online Store works using a familiar shopping basket approach, allowing customers to add products to their basket until they are ready to go ahead and place their order. The shopping basket is visible at all times within the Online Store, allowing customers to easily view and modify the contents of their basket as required.
As part of the sales flow in Self Service the end user is presented with the opportunity to compare products before making their final selection and proceeding with the sale. A range of filters assist with the selection of products to compare. The sale is then progressed by the user clicking on the 'Pick' option provided for each of the compared products. This action could result in the user being directed to the next step in the sales journey i.e. if the user was choosing a handset, on click of 'Pick' the user will be directed to the next page i.e. Plan selection.
Self Service supports special offers where introductory pricing will be available to new customers for a limited promotional period. This includes a number of free days or months of service, or a period where a discounted price will apply.
Self Service delivers an online Account Management presence, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, accessible on any web-enabled device. Customers can maintain all details of their Account, including updating demographic details, viewing and paying bills, managing payment agreements, and monitoring their overall spend. The application can be used by both individual consumers, wanting to take control of their personal finances, and corporate administrators needing to manage overall company spend on their communications services.
Self Service provides an online Service Management environment for maintaining all aspects of your communications services at any time of the day or night. Customers can choose to update their service preferences including content controls, network settings, automatic top-ups and spend limits, as well as making package changes and buying boosters to extend a service bundle. Customers can also choose to upgrade or downgrade their Services at any time, providing that no contract or bundle conditions are broken by the change.
Customers can use the Web Chat feature to gain direct access to a Customer Services Representative (CSR) at any time. By opening a Web Chat session, the Customer is automatically routed to an available CSR who is using the Cerillion CRM Plus application. The chat session continues until either party ends the session, at which point details of the chat are automatically recorded in the customer history within CRM Plus.
Self Service can be easily integrated within an existing customer portal or delivered as a complete web application as required. Built using stylesheets and neutral iconography, Self Service can be readily ‘re-skinned’ to comply with CSP branding requirements.
A native mobile application based on Cerillion Self Service functionality provides another access-point for customers and will further improve end user experience. All account and service management features are available at your fingertips from a Smartphone. The app runs on iOS and Android and is made available from the Android and Apple app stores.
