History and Leadership
I founded Vocalabs in 2001 because I saw a need for companies to understand how to provide outstanding customer service cost-effectively. After several years as an analyst tracking the technology behind customer service (IVR, speech recognition, CRM, ACD, and the rest of the alphabet soup), I saw that while the technology is capable of supporting outstanding customer experiences, it was more often making things worse.
Few companies intend to provide bad service, but because they lacked the tools to really understand customer service from the customer's perspective most decisions were based on cutting costs without enough attention to the impact that had on customer satisfaction, loyalty, and other drivers of long-term growth.
At Vocalabs we build reliable, actionable, and credible customer feedback programs so our clients can make intelligent decisions about how to improve the customer experience. Let us show you the difference we can make in your customer experience.
