The email we sent
We used Intercom to send out the email to our top users.
Note: This first response is from a large organisation that fully benchmarked Upscope's online screen sharing and found that it cut call time by 30%. Some of the other responses below indicate larger amounts but 30% does appear to be a good assumption to make.
The unedited responses
From all responses, including those below, we've calculated a roughly 43% reduction in completing sessions.
- “The primary user is our onboarding team and our data shows that it cuts their calls down from 30 mins to about 22 mins, which is fantastic.”
- "Hi Joe, Sorry for not replying sooner - I would estimate that we are saving at least 40 hours a month."
- “It saves me hours everyday. I use it to walk all my customers through their account. :) My account overviews went from 30-45 mins down to 20-25 mins.”
- “Cumulatively, I’d say at least 1 man-hour per day.”
- "We have reduced our support resolution time from 15 mins to >5 mins! Upscope makes troubleshooting with our clients 100% easier. Not sure how we did this before you guys!"
- “My meetings used to last 30-40 minutes and they have decreased to 20-25 minutes. This has helped me make more appointments throughout the day, but also help my clients better understand what I am showing them and answering the question they are asking by viewing their screen.”
- “20 minutes could be a good average.”
- “Using Upscope is very situational, and can save us time differently in every situation. To give you an idea it can save us up to 30 minutes, and to me that’s a very helpful and useful!
- "Call time can be anywhere from 45 mins to an hour because we have to identify the root cause of the problem, but with Upscope it allows us to see what they are seeing and eliminate the guessing game so a 45 minute problem can now be a 15 minute problem.”
- “Hi Joe - it does save around 5 minutes each call as prior to this our clients had to give our support team access to their agreements through a different method.”
- “Saves about 5 minutes on every inbound call.”
- “I use upscope quite a bit. I don’t know for other reps, but for me, it can easily save me about 2 hours a day.”
- "We have some very inexperienced users of our product and also technology in general. Our team are now able to quickly login into a PC, with their permission, in moments rather than minutes. Much less frustration for both users and staff."
- "My demo range time was from 45 to 60 minutes now its 25 to 35 minutes."
