WHAT MAKES OUR CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE SPECIAL? GREAT TOOLS AND A WORLD-CLASS SUPPORT TEAM

Troubleshooting Tech with a Human Touch

The Kymeta customer experience platform relies on a sophisticated suite of tools and technology to integrate internal back-end systems with customer-facing troubleshooting. And while the software that powers our toolkit – from Salesforce ServiceCloud to Oracle to Sharepoint – equips our technicians to have all necessary data at their fingertips, it is the culture and attitude of our customer support professionals that truly makes the Kymeta customer experience best-in-class.

When a troubleshooting request comes in, customers are looking for someone on the other end of the line who cares, listens, wants to and has the technical expertise to solve their issue. Because we operate a 24×7 NOC, with technicians located across the U.S. and Europe, communication and team cohesion are critical in providing a seamless customer experience around the clock. Even with COVID-19 our team has stayed connected, working all day through questions and ideas shared across time zones and shifts. The lack of face-to-face interactions has not affected our ability to be a strong, problem-solving team.

Beyond the technical support, we have built a forum to address the questions and concerns of our customers efficiently and effectively. Our top priority is that no matter what issue is being resolved, or what time of day (or night) it is, our partners and customers should feel supported and informed by the Kymeta and Lepton teams. Technology has helped us achieve that goal despite being separate by COVID-19, but the character of our people is what keeps it going.

Despite the challenges presented by working remotely, our mean time to resolve troubleshooting issues has continuously dropped over the last 6 months, while customer feedback to our NOC team has remained high.

Kymeta ConnectTM transforms the purchase and consumption of mobile data by delivering a complete end-to-end solution that includes hybrid satellite-cellular connectivity, global support, and network services packages for a low monthly fee.
