Give Your Staff the Tools to
Deliver Exceptional Customer Experiences
Imagine happier, stress-free customers and a staff better equipped to focus on addressing customer needs. Now imagine that your customers can go where they want and do what they want while they wait. Imagine your customers are prepared and have all the documentation required to address their issues. Cloud-based Flex Appointments and Virtual Queuing make all of that possible. The system also collects key analytics which give you full insight into your daily operations such as how many customer issues were resolved, how many walk-ins and reasons for the appointment, how long it took to service each customer, how many customers did each staff member see, and so on. Analytics give you the information with which to increase the accuracy of resource planning. It enables you to easily and continuously make adjustments and improvements that save time and money, and increase customer satisfaction.
Flex appointments increase efficiency, reduces wait times and drives up satisfaction throughout the entire process. Cloud-based appointment scheduling improves your customer and staff interactions, which increases productivity while reducing costs. Our team of trained veterans guides you through every step of implementation and makes the transition easy and manageable.
Virtual queueing allows your customers to easily sign up for your services online from any location, whether on their phone, computer or tablet. They can even access the online system with a flip phone. When customers "queue up" (sign in and get online) they are given a personal wait-time forecast, while updates and alerts are continuously texted to them as they advance through the line. Accurate wait times keep them in the loop so they can stay productive while they wait.
DOCUMENT CONVERSION/ RECORDS MANAGEMENT
A well-structured records management program for physical and electronic records is essential to compliance and reducing risk. In today’s constantly-changing environment and escalating quantities of records, it is critical that records life-cycles are accurately tracked from creation to destruction.
Bright Star helps you set up efficient and systematic control of your records. From creation and compliance, to final disposition, Bright Star gets you set up so you can quickly and easily access all information in your custody:
Establish an organizational structure for streamlining the life-cycle management of records.
Create strategies to migrate paper-driven processes to digital, resulting in simpler and more cost-effective processes, and a lot less paper.
Conduct a complete inventory of your records and determine retention dates.
Create and maintain records retention schedules to ensure compliance with regulating bodies such as NARA.
Develop appropriate security to protect records from damage, loss or unauthorized access.
Create policies and procedures for standardized records management in one department and location, or across multiple departments and locations.
Set up auditing methodologies to ensure compliance with policies and procedures.
Offering both on-site or off-site scanning, we tailor our services to meet your needs. We will ensure you can efficiently and accurately scan all needed records and other documents, whether right in your office environment or at our secure Bright Star scanning center:
We will set up and staff an in-house scanning function. Whether you are a small or large agency, we can set up everything from the equipment to the staff.
Off-Site Secure Scanning
We will pick up your records and bring them to our fully equipped, secure, high-volume scanning center to have each document scanned quickly and accurately.
We can scan anything from 300 to 600 dpi (and in some cases higher), from small Post-It™ notes to large architectural drawings, from 100 pages to millions of pages. Our veterans are experts at document scanning and ensure that your documents are accurately secured, prepped, scanned and converted into electronic images in any format you need (PDF, TIFF, etc.). Index information is accurately entered, and a file exported into txt, xml, xlsx, mdb, accdb, etc.
