NMBRS is an all-in-one Payroll/HR platform making HR processes easier, and stress-free for everyone. With a focus on hiring and optimizing the employee experience, their stellar customer support team is an integral reason for their industry success.
NMBRS has been using Kaizo for 4 months and have been leveraging the personal goal-setting and skill challenge features. We spoke with Ingmar Lodewijk, Quality Officer at NMBRS about how Kaizo has saved their management team 3-5 hours every week, created a more self-managed team and helped increase their CSAT by 7%.
Since implementing Kaizo, the NMBRS customer support team is able to do more with their time. Between increasing audit and feedback efficiency and eliminating manual processes, NMBRS is empowered to more effectively allocate their resources to operate more efficiently.
According to Ingmar, one of NMBRS biggest wins with Kaizo is greater operational efficiency within their 1:1 meetings.
“Before using Kaizo I was having to spend hours digging into excel sheets, finding our data, organizing it, analyzing it and trying to prepare notes for 1:1 meetings. All the while the agent had no access to this data and went into meetings blind. With Kaizo agents can set their own goals and both them and I can track their progress. This saves me 3-5 hours a week on metric analysis and planning for meetings. 1:1’s are now much more efficient because both parties enter meetings informed on what needs to be discussed and why. The agents are now self-educating and I’m a guide rather than before when I would tell them how to improve. I’m guiding not telling.” Ingmar Lodewijk
Leveraging Kaizo’s personal goal-setting feature, the NMBRS team can now use time previously spent on organizing and analyzing performance data to focus on increasing employee performance with actionable 1:1 meetings. As a result, NMBRS has been able to ditch their complicated spreadsheets and use the real-time insights Kaizo provides to pinpoint areas for improvement. This eases the pain of management having to micro-manage their teams as agents are now self-educating and driving their own development.
Quality & CSAT Improvement
The introduction of gamification into a customer support team’s operations has a major impact on agent performance and customer satisfaction. Since using Kaizo, NMBRS has seen a significant increase in their CSAT and performance as a result of boosted employee motivation.
With Kaizo, NMBRS has seen a boost in agent motivation towards more customer-focused support and an obvious increase in their CSAT as a result.
“Kaizo has sparked an obvious boost in our agent’s focus towards a more customer-centric approach to their support. Previously, the quality of an agent’s support was not visible to them on a real-time basis. There was often an imbalance between speed and quality when answering tickets. Now agents can quantify their successes based on quality, speed, and productivity. This makes it much more motivating and gives guidance for them to provide better, well-rounded support. The transparency and accountability have contributed to a huge increase in our quality output and of course our CSAT”.
Utilizing Kaizo’s gamified skill challenges feature, the NMBRS team can now quantify the quality of their performance in real-time. Agents are guided and motivated by point and level progressions to provide a higher quality of support based on quality, speed, and productivity. As a result, NMBRS have increased their CSAT by 7%. This is a result of improved employee engagement and motivation as rewards are now visual with the allocation of points and leveling-up of agents’ ninja avatars. This eases the ubiquitous industry pain of keeping your team engaged, motivated and productive to provide high-level support.
After only four months, NMBRS are still in the early stages of their Kaizo journey, with so much to show for it. We are excited to see what future growth is in store as NMBRS continue to use Kaizo.
