Wavetec turns Air Mauritius customer services into a pleasant experience

Leveraging above the industry standards Wavetec’s Electronic Queue Management Solutions (EQMS) resolved the customer queuing issues of Air Mauritius Customer Care Office based in Port Louis. Air Mauritius was also inspired by the lucrative results and three years of quality service for effective customer service solutions by Wavetec to Emirates in Mauritius. Booking staff, travelers, and overall customer flow process significantly benefitted by Wavetec’s Electronic Queue Management Solution. The system was simplified by automating many different aspects of the stream of customers across multiple counters. The company is the fourth largest carrier in Sub-Saharan Africa, and has an important standing in the European, African, and Indian Ocean region markets; the airline won the “2011 Indian Ocean Leading Airline Prize”, making it the seventh year in a row for it to win the award. It has its operations extended across the whole region and caters to international services over 30 destinations with 80 flights per week.

Challenges

  • Air Mauritius wanted to pursue interpretive measures for unpredictable inflow of passengers visiting the customer care center and predict peak and off-peak timings.
  • Say ‘No’ to queues is the approach that Air Mauritius wanted to exercise in its Customer Care Centers.
  • Air Mauritius wanted to monitor and subsequently improve the competency of individual staff by reducing the staff idle time at the front office.
  • Enhancing customer’s experience has been the key objective which Air Mauritius wanted to achieve through better and comfortable customer services.
  • Air Mauritius had a unique challenge in which they wanted a multi-language (English & French) communication system for its customers.
  • Branch Manager had to be physically vigilant at all times to ensure that there are no bottlenecks in the customer flow. They wanted some automated notification in case of bottlenecks.
  • To ensure that the after arrival waiting time of the customers was reduced and that they experience engaging communication while waiting.
  • Access to statistical records for monitoring and evaluating of each transaction time.

Business Impact Queue Management The Passenger Friendly Electronic Queue Management Systems allowed Air Mauritius to manage its operational activities, staff management and enhance their customer services significantly. This has lead to increased number of transactions and reduced transaction times increasing valuable customer volumes and making the most of each passenger transaction. Reporting System Our Reporting System helped Air Mauritius in identifying the trends about speak and off-peak timings of customer inflow and subsequently adopt the best fit approach as according to the occurring situation. The managers at the Air Mauritius Customer Care Center now do not have to be physically moving across the branch to ensure that there are no bottlenecks. Instead our Real-Time reporting system allows them to monitor the whole customer flow while sitting on their chairs right in front of their computer screens. Another facility which our Reporting System provided the managers was that even repeated computerized monitoring of the customer flow is not needed. Managers can set automatic alert notifications as according to their branch needs and our system will alert them if there is any bottleneck in the branch.
