TPV Ninja Adds Paperless Fulfillment Function

 

TPV Ninja, the groundbreaking application that’s transforming the door-to-door sales channel, just got even better.

Now the web-based third party verification tool features a paperless solution to deliver critical onboarding documents directly to the customer. Terms and conditions, videos, or any other “what to expect” material is delivered to their personal device immediately after the verification process.

The new DMS (Document Management System) streamlines the entire business workflow, saving time, money and speeding a brand-building relationship.

Here is how it works:

1. Sales Verification Company uploads all your welcome documents into TPV Ninja’s DMS.
2. The customer completes the TPV process via text or email on their own smart device.
3. TPV Ninja then sends all the documents to your new customer, creating a fully digital enrollment workflow.

Sending digital welcome kits also entices the customer to provide a valid email address, which can be a valuable asset for ongoing communications. No more
“noname@gmail” clogging up your system.

The TPV Ninja paperless solution increases the efficiency and cost savings of an already-impressive verification tool. Call

‘All Hands on Deck’ Approach Keeps Hold Times in Line

The mark of an expert in any field is an uncanny sense for the way events will unfold. It comes with experience, and there is no substitute for it in reaching your goals or running a sharp operation.

12912632_mThird party verification is no different. At Sales Verification company, we’ve become very proficient at predicting incoming call volumes. Our Account Managers keep in close touch with our clients’ sales managers, so they know which campaigns are active and at what strength. That allows us to schedule our staff to meet call demand, ramping up and down throughout the day. Our approach keeps client costs low and employee engagement high. There’s no sitting around.

Sometimes, however, call volumes spike unexpectedly. That’s not always a bad thing, because it means that business is good for the client. But it also means that hold times can increase. Avoiding customer and client frustration means a quick adjustment and an all-hands-on-deck approach.

The training process for all of our staff starts with the basics of fielding incoming calls and guiding a customer through a script. Regardless of whether the employee is on track for an eventual administrative or management position, we believe that it’s necessary for everybody understand the fundamentals of how we do business and to pitch in on a moment’s notice.

Since all of our staff has experience working the phones, we have enough to handle the extra call volume. Once hold times exceed a certain threshold, the “reserve squad” takes the field and gets response times back in line. This means we can handle peak volumes without any major interruption.

We understand just how important it is to move from closing the sale to verification in a timely manner. Neither customers nor sales agents have time to be kept waiting.

Here at The Sales Verification Company, we take pride in driving innovation in the sales verification call center industry. Our services provide a premium verification experience that is second to none for energy suppliers located in Houston, New York and anywhere coast-to-coast.

Remote Monitoring Can Save Your Brand

Many companies employ outsourced organizations to boost their sales efforts or handle the customer care function. It’s a simple matter of resources: easier to hire a professional than to try to do everything yourself.

gearBut how do you really know if your sales team or customer care group is representing your brand and products in a way that makes you proud? There’s a lot at stake. Remote monitoring is the answer.

Most companies listen in occasionally on their vendors, and spot checks can certainly be effective in keeping everything running smoothly. But more often it’s the concept of continued random, remote monitoring that’s keeps the vendors in line. Again, it often comes down to resources, and most companies can’t afford as many hours as they’d like devoted to monitoring.

Sales Verification Company can supplement your monitoring efforts. It’s a simple solution to improve customer services and telesales efficiency and prevent systematic breakdowns that lead to unpleasant customer experiences.

Call monitoring works by having our third party quality assurance team plug into our client’s vendor and monitor the calls as they progress.

Welcome Calls Lay Strong Brand Loyalty Foundation

Third party verification is an essential element of the sales process. It cements the buying decision and goes a long way toward eliminating future customer misunderstanding. It’s also, by design, fairly impersonal.

16506093_sThe TPV script is built on regulatory and legal requirements. There are several questions that need answers, and the customer’s time is valuable. Our representatives are clear, concise and as friendly as possible, but in the end the third party verification call is a streamlined process.

But Sales Verification Company services don’t necessarily end with “thank you, goodbye.” Our follow-up Welcome Call service goes a long way in building long-term brand loyalty.

Speaking with the customer about their experience helps to smooth out any buyer’s remorse or nagging questions that might linger from the sales process. Giving them an opportunity to provide feedback or get a quick answer can be the first steps of a genuine customer relationship. In fact, the Welcome Call can be so appreciated that it’s often relayed to family and friends and can lead to referral business. Our TPV representatives also gather relevant data and identify trends in the customer sales experience, passing that back to the client through their Account Manager.

It may seem an afterthought, but Welcome Calls from Sales Verification Company show the customer you are willing to go that extra mile for them. It’s a brand-building investment that pays long-term dividends.

Live Monitoring Enhances TPV Function

Regulators Push Toward Increased Verification

In an ongoing effort to increase consumer protection safeguards in the retail energy industry, two regulatory entities have recently floated a double-verification requirement.

5535502_sIn a recent hearing of the Illinois Commerce Commission concerning new rules for the retail electric marketing and disclosure rules, two Administrative Law Judges proposed the need for both a letter of agency (LOA) and a third party verification for “in-person” solicitation of a residential or small commercial customer.

This draft order comes on the heels of a proposal by the District of Columbia Public Service Commission last fall, which also called for a double verification requirement for door-to-door sales.

In that case, the PSC proposal would add the need for a written LOA within five days of a sale conducted over the telephone, and a recorded TPV in addition to the signed contract for an in-person sale.

Not surprisingly, retail marketers responded negatively to the proposals, insisting that the requirements would be impossible to execute effectively and would increase customer confusion.

Regardless of how and in what form the new proposals are implemented, it’s clear that the shift in the energy sector is toward increased verification procedures. Contact Sales Verification Company today to learn about how our products and services can protect your sales initiative.
