The month of November has flown by for the team at
ZippyKid Pressable. November was busy with the launch of our new brand, new pricing, and new focus on the market. However, with all the new things, we kept the most important one the same; our team’s unparalleled commitment to the level of support we provide our customers.
Last month we unveiled the Pressable Customer Happiness Report. This report keeps our entire team accountable through the ups and downs of servicing our customers. We’ve been pleasantly surprised by the response this is receiving inside the WordPress community and the support world. Our Help Desk provider has even adopted our code base for a campaign to promote showing off your team’s support with the Fresh Smiles Campaign. We’re pleased to be a partner with them in promoting support for companies of all industries and sizes.
That’s the month in support, so let’s get to the numbers.
How do the Numbers Break Down?
- 862 Tickets Created, Up 17.28%
- 786 Tickets Resolved, Down 7.20%
- 2.5 Average Customer Interactions, Down 11.79%
- 2.4 Average Agent Interactions, No Change
- 140 Tickets Reopened, Up 2.19%
- 88% Ticket Satisfaction
Customer Satisfaction in November
What does this mean?
With all of the changes we’ve made this month, things went really well. We were worried about the confusion we’d be causing for existing customers, and the questions new customers would have. However, everyone handled it like a charm, even if it did take a bit of time to get everyone their answers.
Here’s a breakdown of tickets resolved by group:
- Billing Resolved 27 Tickets
- Enterprise Resolved 9 Tickets
- Support Resolved 435 Tickets
The team stayed busy this month answering plenty of questions about all of the changes we launched last month. We’ve also been able to use all of the feedback to improve and update the Pressable Knowledge Base for some of the changes.
What are we doing next?
The team is motivated to move the needle and consistently keep the Smiley ratings above 90%. There were some highs and lows this month as things crept close 95%, and then fell off with some of the launch confusion. Response time is also high on the list as we work to reduce the time customers wait for an answer, and wait for a resolution.
November was a good month for the team and as we continue to fine tune our systems and resources things are sure to get even better. We appreciate every rating and comment that’s left on every ticket as it provides us with opportunities to improve, and opportunities to celebrate.
Free test sites are helpful for previewing changes to your WordPress website before actually committing to those changes to be live. Our latest article on KB.ZippyKid.com shows you how to automate the process where files go from Github to WordPress intelligently. Once this is setup, you’ll never have to worry about what files changed or […]
Sometimes websites act funny. They seem to act illogical, like they have a brain of their own. The fact is, this couldn’t be further from the truth. If your website is doing something funny, like giving you one of those pesky 500 Error messages or maybe just loading slow, there is an absolute reason (or reasons) […]
You’re doing everything you can to get people to your website and keep them there, (including investing in a reliable WordPress hosting partner like ZippyKid!). But what is your brand identity telling visitors? What is the first thing visitors think when they visit your WordPress website? I find two seemingly unrelated statements to be […]
Not long ago I got to sit down with Mark Fusco, one of our WordPress web hosting customers here at ZippyKid. Mark is taking the Certified Sommelier Examination just a month from now, and his website, 1337wine.com, includes hundreds of videos of him reviewing wines as he tries them for the first time. He was […]
It’s hard to not notice our awesome customers. As a premier WordPress web hosting provider, we have such a diversity in the types of customers we see, from workout videos and food recipes, to politically charged opinion blogs, our customers all have one thing in common: each person took the time to start something they […]
Thanksgiving is a time for reflecting on the year, for family bonding, and for sweatpants after that second (third?) helping of apple pie. ZippyKid will be closed on Thanksgiving (this Thursday November 22nd) to spend time with our loved ones and friends. But have no fear — we will still be around in case of […]
I’m noticing a lot of connections and relay attempts from .hinet.net and .tw to port 25, i’m not sure why but my spam filter didn’t block all of these messages, so I noticed about 56,000 messages in my mailq. I had to delete all of them, and come up with a quick way to block […]
A great post by Pete Lacey about SOAP and the problems one WILL encounter when trying to use it and understand it. Please someone make it go away!
Vim 7.0 introduces tabs to Vim. I wasn’t aware of this until BigE pointed it out to me, and to this tip; that lets you move around the tabs with firefox style short-cuts for tab navigation. That’s a great tip, but what about us OS X users who prefer using the “apple/command” key? I decided […]
