KPMG has been named a global 'Leader' among Customer Service consulting providers in a new report by ALM Intelligence.
The ALM Vanguard report ranks Customer Service consulting firms based on their capabilities to create client impact through their depth of expertise and the ability to deploy across a range of engagement models. In ALM's in-depth analysis of global firms, the report highlights the effectiveness of KPMG's Six Pillars approach to Customer Experience Excellence.
“KPMG approaches customer service consulting within the context of accelerating differentiated customer experiences through the lens of the Six Pillars of [Customer] Experience Excellence: Personalization, Integrity, Expectations, Time and Effort, Resolutions and Empathy,” writes ALM's Matthew A. Merker, Senior Analyst, Management Consulting Research. He continues, “[The firm] advocates that if clients incorporate all Six Pillars into their customer experience, they will outperform the rest of the market.”
ALM's report cites KPMG as 'Best in Class' for its Customer Service Operating System capability, and recognizes the impact of KPMG's Connected Enterprise framework in helping clients transform their customer experience.
“KPMG's customer service designs are integrated with middle- and back-office functions through [the firm's] Connected Enterprise offering, which provides a symbiotic relationship of information sharing throughout the client organization,” the report states. “This closes performance gaps in customer interaction and service delivery while providing transparency into opportunities for improvement in daily operations to increase efficiency and reduce costs.”
“Customer service has the largest impact on customer experience in the battle to win, retain and grow today's customers,” says Julio Hernandez, Global Customer Center of Excellence and US Customer Advisory Lead. “To deliver excellence and a differentiating customer experience, organizations need to think beyond traditional 'operations' and be more intentional in the design of the service experience. They must connect customer service to the Connected Enterprise and do so in way that makes economic sense.”
The ALM report also praises KPMG's service delivery model, highlighting KPMG's effective use of “four key components” to help clients improve their delivery of a valuable customer experience:
