Customer Success Story: Community College of Denver [Video]
I’m sure many of you have been there—so many things on your plate at work that there’s no way to get them all done. That’s where Gustavo Rivas’s team was a little over a year ago. He’s the Call Center Manager at the Community College of Denver (CCD) in Colorado. The school’s enrollment more than doubled since the 2008 financial crisis, as laid-off workers sought retraining and high school graduates try to incur less debt than they would at a university.
Here's the problem: the school didn’t have the resources to hire more staff to support this influx in students. Systems and programs that were already stretched became even more strained. And administrative functions such as the Call Center faced unprecedented pressure. The CCD team—consisting of Gustavo, Lori Kester, the Dean of Enrollment Services, and Leslie McClellon, the VP of Student Affairs—put their heads together and decided to invest in live chat to enable agents to help more people. They did some research and selected LivePerson’s platform.
