Quick and easy Broadband access – mquadr.at improves First Time Setup
Self-care tools perfectly support necessary setup processes for newly purchased broadband products, bringing customers online fast and easily.
As the demand of smart solutions increases constantly, many ISPs have spotted effortless product onboarding as an opportunity to positively strengthen their image as an Internet service provider. For this reason, mquadr.at is currently preparing an extensive relaunch and expansion of the m2suite First Time Setup module. This new product will be available with the start of the new year 2016 and will already have been realised as a first customer project.
First Time Setup 2016 – targeted support for initial implementation
The new First Time Setup includes all components necessary for initial Internet access, merged on a very own desktop. Following an automatic analysis, the customer is guided through all essential stages of the setup process. With the simple and clear instructions (less text, more graphics), customers can quickly setup their home network. According to individual needs and priorities, the different topics can be treated right away or at a later date. The First Time Setup desktop offers a clear view of the current status of each area, which can be resumed at any time.
Automation, guided support and customer education as key to success
In line with all other self-care solutions by mquadr.at, the new First Time Setup combines automation, guided support and customer education in order to deliver targeted support to customers.
Numerous analyses and settings are being implemented automatically in the background. That way, many sources of error can be avoided right from the start or reduced to a minimum.
For all further processes, simple and well illustrated instructions, videos and PDF manuals are provided which help users at any level of knowledge. Instead of finding cryptic error messages, the customer receives clear instructions, leading him directly to the desired outcome.
In addition, information and tips on Internet related topics are included in the instruction process and offer valuable background knowledge that will strengthen the Internet competence of the customer in the long run.
Components of the new First Time Setup
Establishing an Internet connection: Within this very first step the customer is guided through the initiation process and the cabling of the new modem or router, establishing a well-functioning LAN and WiFi connection.
Installing the WiFi home network: Contains topics such as safety, configuration and optimisation of the customer’s WiFi. Via the clear and neatly arranged user interface, the WiFi and router settings can be configured easily and passwords can be stored safely.
For the integration of additional computers, mobile devices, WiFi extenders, PowerLAN adapters or gaming consoles in the home network, instructions, videos and PDF downloads are at hand as well. The supported devices are, of course, adapted to the ISP’s offer.
Value Added Services: This area offers unique cross- and up-selling opportunities for additional ISP services. During the First Time Setup the costumer’s attention is also drawn to offers for FON, Internet telephony or Internet TV, which can easily be purchased on the online portal or the online shop of the ISP.
Subsequently, the customer will find help for the setup process of the chosen service in this area.
Further components of the First Time Setup 2016 include safety and browser settings, speed tests and additional collections of manuals and instructions.
First Time Setup Tec Specs
The First Time Setup is available as part of the m2suite and as a stand-alone tool, via download, CD and as a walled-garden version on the modem. Just as the m2suite, it is accessible for Windows and Mac.
Apps for Android, iPhone and Windows Phone are currently under development and will feed into the popular trend of Internet use on mobile devices.
The First Time Setup perfectly qualifies as an initial touch point with self-care for customers. After a first positive experience it is more likely that they will fall back to the extended m2suite self-care tools for future support needs. Thus, self-care is established within the realm of customer support from the beginning of the customer life-cycle.
