Discover Financial's Tips on Elite Customer Feedback Practices

Discover Financial Services prides itself on its customer feedback monitoring practices. Clint Morley, vice president of customer service and engagement, was a keynote speaker at the recent 12th Annual Call Center Week. His presentation, "Achieving World-Class Performance – Why the Customer’s Voice is the One True Judge of Service," addressed Discover’s customer feedback strategy in its contact center.

Morley joined CMIQ after his presentation to expand on his company’s program and also suggest some best practices for both large and small companies’ customer feedback programs.

Morley emphasized that a feedback program doesn’t haven’t to be sophisticated. Simply asking your agents to track feedback throughout the day and holding a weekly focus group with them is a surprisingly effective method of gathering feedback. Within each group of agents, simply designating a customer advocate can generate leadership, teamwork and investment in monitoring customer feedback.
