An introduction to Firstsource
Who we are, what we do, where and how we do it. Learn more about how we help our clients stay ahead of the curve.
Robotic Process Automation
Firstsource leverages Cognitive Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning tools to help our clients achieve accelerated business outcomes.
Firstsource leverages new age technologies such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning tools to help our clients achieve accelerated business outcomes.
By delivering automation using process re-engineering and technology, Firstsource creates cost efficient, streamlined, compliant and simplified processes, allowing our clients to focus on driving customer experience through higher value activity, rather than being focused on transaction processing alone.
For each client, we devise a custom roadmap for automation
We then deliver this through our suite of market leading proprietary solutions. For example, our firstSmartomation solution provides simple, user-friendly interface and intuitive processes which transforms the way agents engage with customers.
We use third party technologies in artificial intelligence and machine learning to read semi-structured and unstructured data. By deploying automation behind the scenes, agents are able to concentrate on doing what they do best – delivering the best possible experience to your customers.
Robotic Process Automation delivers...
Customer management at Firstsource is driven by analytics, to uncover actionable insights that can increase revenue, reduce cost and deliver the right customer experience.
As the digitisation of services continues to accelerate, customer preferences globally have changed dramatically. Digital channels such as web, mobile and social are increasingly the preferred channels of choice for consumers. Getting it right in this new world requires a seamless approach to connect your customer journeys across telephone, web, mobile and social – customer experience has now become a compelling differentiator. The challenges of this new landscape include unpredictable transaction volumes, the need to reduce costs and the availability of a true multi-channel service.
The rise of digital in customer management
While traditional contact channels such as telephone are far from dead, the continued proliferation of new digital channels and rising customer expectations means that brands must evolve or risk falling behind. Today’s customers want to be able to interact with brands using a single ‘channel’ – their smart phone or tablet, making concepts like ‘multichannel’ and ‘Channel shift’ increasingly irrelevant. Consumers can access every channel 24/7 through a single device, yet many brands continue to force their customers to interact on their terms.
Channels seldom operate in isolation and seamless escalation paths between channels mean that queries can be resolved quickly with minimal extra effort from the customer – think of an email or social media conversation moving to telephony – all with the same agent.
Business Analytics Services
Stay ahead with business analytics services that leverage deep data science capabilities to deliver actionable insights, resulting in positive business outcomes.
Analytics & Insights
Implementing actionable insights to deliver business outcomes
To enable growth, customer-focused organisations need to understand the importance of data that flows in and out through their systems. Analytics can help harness this data, driving change in internal operations and marketing efforts, and enhancing corporate strategies.
Firstsource’s analytics solutions eliminate bias, replacing them with data driven customer insights to gain a clear advantage, while learning from experience, using the data to predict future behaviour of customers to facilitate better decisions.
Our Revenue Maximiser tool maximises revenues for our customers by pinpointing areas with potential to increase revenue while proactively managing collections and targeting customers that are likely to churn.
Firstsource can help you identify opportunities to increase revenues from your existing customer base. Our technology and analytics tools enable us to take a highly targeted approach which improves the customer experience and makes a real difference to your bottom line.
Firstsource’s Revenue Maximiser tool pinpoints areas where you can increase revenues – through up-selling, cross-selling, proactively managing collections and targeting customers who are likely to leave. Our efficient, effective and targeted approach delivers a positive customer experience and enhances your reputation during a potentially time-consuming and costly process.
Sales through service to increase revenue
Apart from delivering great customer experiences, we identify areas where our clients can increase revenues from their customer base. Using our technology and analytics tools, our experienced experts deliver up-sell and cross-sell opportunities for clients to target customers.
Firstsource’s approach differs vastly from the traditional telesales type services and ensures the right customer is targeted with the right products, based on their profile and behaviour. This is complemented by ensuring that the right sales agent is matched with the contact. For some of our clients, this approach has delivered a 35% increase in revenue per customer.
Workforce Management Solutions
Our workforce management solution enables enterprises to employ an effective workforce optimisation practice that works across delivery models and supports optimisation in a multi-channel environment.
We believe that investment in people is a key source of innovation, growth, competitive advantage and future leadership. Well-executed workforce management enhances efficiency, productivity and engagement and optimises costs without losing focus on the customer.
Firstsource is experienced in the management and optimal use of resource and assigns the right employees with the right skills for the right job at the right time. As an operations tool, workforce management monitors agent performance and customer response, while enabling forward-looking organisations to manage resources, forecast and plan staffing across channels.
Complaint Handling and Remediation Services
Stay ahead with our complaint handling and remediation services that ensures personalised interactions with your customers to deliver excellent customer experience.
Good customer service is essential for brand loyalty, therefore handling complaints effectively is vitally important for organisations in all industry sectors. Statistics show that 79% of consumers would be unlikely to shop with a brand again if a complaint they made was treated badly. This means that proactive management of complaining customers is key to preserving customer relationships.
Firstsource is experienced in managing complaints and remediation for clients across a variety of sectors, helping re-design processes to try and resolve customer complaints quickly and effectively. By identifying the root cause analysis of customers’ issues through analytics, we are able to reduce the volume of complaints and often enable self-service resolutions for our clients’ customers.

Insurance BPO Services

Changes in policy, increased regulation and the growth of new technologies have resulted in a significant shift in the way the insurance industry engages with its customers.

Many companies have had to completely rethink their processes, products and systems to meet these changing customer requirements.
