Northwest Communications Cooperative Selects Calix Support Cloud

  • Calix

SAN JOSE, CA — Northwest Communications Cooperative (NCC) has increased its first call resolutions by 36 percent and cut escalations by 26 percent with Calix Support Cloud (CSC). As part of the Mesh-Enhanced Carrier Class Wi-Fi solution, CSC features Self Heal functionality that enables NCC to proactively address network issues before they impact the subscriber experience. Self Heal uses machine learning to optimize the Wi-Fi experience for subscribers, ensuring maximum throughput and preempting service issues to dramatically reduce support calls.

Additionally, Customer Success Services was vital to onboarding the customer service department to efficiently leverage the unprecedented visibility into a better subscriber experience. The success services team also ensures NCC maximizes its Calix Cloud investment by introducing best practices to measure and meet the cooperative’s success metrics.

“We are seeing stunning results in our CSR’s ability to resolve issues with fewer escalations,” said Courtney Olson, customer service supervisor for NCC. “Now with unprecedented visibility, we are able to run monthly internet truck roll roundtables consisting of CSRs, tech support, and customer care supervisors to take our proactive customer care to the next level.”
