Colt Online User Experience & Documentation:

Colt Online Digital Experience 2020 - We're undertaking a major overhaul of the user experience and performance improvement of our main customer portal. In our most recent roll-out in July, we've rebuilt our login pages, simplified our menu navigation and built a brand new portal home page. By October, we'll deliver new experiences in Ticketing, Services, Invoices & Planned Works.

Colt Online Documentation Site - We've listened to your feedback about finding online help for Colt Online difficult. We're in the process of redesigning our help site, with significantly improved search capability and easier contextual information. We will then be including multi language support at a later date.

Video Support & Webinars - We regularly run Webinars on Colt Online and how to get the best out of it. To find out more about how to join one of these, visit https://www.colt.net/support/colt-online-webinar/.

Colt Online now available in Asia - We recently launched Colt Online in Asia so you can now view your invoices online. We are currently working with you to get new accounts set up so you can take advantage of the platform. Read more about this in our announcement blog.

Improving Customer Experience

Streamlining - Developed a centralised Leadtime repository that will be accessed by multiple teams within Colt to align and provide consistent Leadtime information for quoting and date setting

Updating Policies - Updating internal Date Management Policy giving harmonised guidelines on date management across Colt locations

Making things clearer - Updating templates, with system integration, to provide accurate and timely information at key order milestones

Delivering on time - Improved jeopardy management tools to highlight where delays will impact planned delivery tasks, and to prevent them jeopardising the on time delivery of services.

Network Operations : Incident & Problem Management

Increasing internal Quality checks - We've reviewed the process of internal quality checks and we are now checking more things in a more automated way, gaining more insight, meaning we can support you in a more meaningful way.

Communications & Invoicing

Manage your preferences - We are allowing you to manage how much you want to hear from us. We have implemented an "Unsubscribe" button, which allows you to decide to opt out if desired.

First invoice quality checks - For all new accounts we are checking with you the first invoice is as expected before it is formally sent, creating a smooth first time transaction.

New Communication Quality checks - We have set standards for how we will communicate with you, everything from style, to frequency is covered. We have introduced communication quality checks to make sure we are always working to the highest standards when interacting with you.

As the business impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic became clear we switched to sending all your invoices additionally by email as well as post. We want to make sure you receive invoices on time, especially if you are working with end customers. See our other Covid 19 changes here.

We'd love to hear your feedback

At Colt, we aim to be the most customer-oriented business in our industry, and we hope that you are finding that in all of the interactions you have with us. However, there's no such thing as a perfect experience, and there are always ways that we can improve.

We'd love to hear from you in the adjacent form for any ways we can improve our processes, help clarify things better, or deliver our services in a way that suits you more.

We don't allow the uploading of files to our website for security purposes, but if your feedback includes screenshots or attachments (which are more than welcome), please email us on our dedicated customer contact centres.
