Saves Big Bucks
When 3,000 customer service representatives wait 30 minutes to download their schedules every day, there is a big problem. For this retail company, not only did man hours and frustration levels rise, but costs to the company significantly increased, affecting nearly every department along the way.
When it simply got to be too much, they called us! After analyzing their databases, we created solutions that reduced their download time to under two minutes. This saved 28 minutes each day for every customer service representative in the organization, totaling more than 1,500 hours in additional available resources. At $30 an hour per rep, this change in their database system saved the company an average of $45,000 a day! Now that’s the power of a well-optimized database system.
