Working within the telecommunications sector has become harder and harder over the last few years, and that’s why telecommunications management has become so important for WISPs, utilities, companies, municipalities, and more. The ability to use a singular platform or database to manage everything, from subscribers, devices and services to networks and orders will revolutionize how broadband service providers operate. With good telecommunications management, customer churn is reduced, customer support representatives are empowered to make decisions, technicians have a better understanding of issues, and so much more.

Telecommunication Management Supports All Areas Of A Business
Our telecommunication management platform doesn’t just help managers, it helps all of the critical components of a business: from those who work and those who receive the services. It uses one platform and empowers everyone with a simplistic overview of projects, and the intricate details that allow someone to dig deeper and take ownership of a project. From management, sales and marketing, and customer service, to technicians, team leaders, and operators,, every department within a telco, muni, utility or broadband provider benefits.
Telecommunication Management For Subscribers
ETI’s Telecommunications Management Platform puts power back into the customer’s hand so that they can find solutions to their issues, check on their billing, and even talk to CSRs in a shorter amount of time. They have the chance to be more self-sufficient and use a web portal to take on some of the jobs that used to require lengthy calls to customer service.
They can also get minute-by-minute updates on their work orders and the status of their services online, keeping them happier longer. This prevents backups for CSR calls that do require intervention from someone within the company.
Empowering CSRs To Resolve Problems Quickly
Any company knows that customer service representatives have the greatest employee turnover because of how difficult their jobs can be. A good telecommunications management platform can reduce some of that stress. They don’t get the small calls that just create backups. Instead, they are able to focus on the calls that require their expertise and tools. They will be able to take the extra time necessary and go the extra mile to help someone who has a hard problem or maybe isn’t as tech-savvy as other customers. When your CSRs are happier, there is less employee turnover and everyone is happier.
Our telecommunication management offers a smart yet simple overview of the system that can provide up-to-date information to customers, give better predictions about timelines, and push problems forward that impact a higher number of customers. It gives complete transparency into customer accounts so that people can find and locate the problem quickly and efficiently. There is little need to get information from the client, instead CSRs have everything at their fingertips. When they find out the problem, they can quickly create and track a trouble ticket, giving them ownership of the issue. They can search for solutions, update the customer, keep technicians in the loop, and feel prouder of the work they do. They’ll also have access to SLA entitlements and knowledge base articles to help them do their jobs more successfully.
Finally, good, high-quality telecommunications management gives CSRs a lifecycle view of subscriber service history, helping them to recognize problems with hardware that have previously gone unnoticed or recognize those clients who have cycles of calls surrounding their bills and services.
Telecommunications Management System For Field Work
Field service management is one of the most important parts of any business or municipality: it literally keeps everything going. In order to be successful, telecommunications management must be aligned with a company to keep clients happy, expand their coverage areas, and to meet the potential that a company has. ETI’s telecommunications management helps to organize field service workers and leaders by giving them one place to look for everything they need – there is little risk of conflicting information, miscommunication, or confusion.
Within the system, predictive analytics and proactive field engagement transforms the speed and quality of issue resolution so that technicians can fulfill more orders in a day. Using scheduling and dispatching tools, the system ensures that the closest person to the problem gets to be the one to answer the call, the person who goes to the call has the right skills and tools to get the job done, and everyone feels empowered to finish the work. The work order management system and asset management helps to keep everyone on the same page and increase productivity.
For technicians and workers, everything is accessible on their phones. They can get the information they need while they are out on the field. They don’t need to find Wi-Fi or come back to a specific building to get their next job or the information they need. They can also update their time and billing information while on the go, leaving little room for mistakes and overtracking.
Finally, the telecommunication management platform provides better field service analytics to better understand the workforce, current needs, and even plan for the future.
