Leroy Merlin is a French headquartered home improvement and gardening retailer serving several countries in Europe, Russia, Asia, South America and Africa. Leroy Merlin has over 325 outlets around the world, and over 70 outlets and 22,000 staff in Russia. The retailer offers clients a vast range of high quality goods, affordable prices, and a high level of service. All the outlets feature a wide range of goods in five main categories: home, interior, construction materials, renovation, and garden.
In connection with business development in Russia, Leroy Merlin made the decision regarding changes in IT strategy to provide for the implementation of a service-based approach for customer support and IT infrastructure maintenance. The client initiated a project aimed at development and implementation of ITSM processes and deployment of a new ITSM system to fulfill the following tasks:
- Lack of clearly organized operations of the technical support service, and a significant load on the staff of the client's IT department;
- Lack of convenient channels for the submission of users' applications;
- Long resolution time of even the simplest requests for maintenance;
- Significant service quality dependence on competence of local IT experts;
- Complex process of customer support establishment at new outlets under conditions of business growth in Russia.
Goals and objectives
- Establishment of the first line of support for Leroy Merlin staff: ensure the registration, dispatching, and resolution of user requests;
- Arrangement of technical support for cash registering equipment (fiscal printers) at Leroy Merlin outlets;
- Ensure that 95% of calls are received within 30 seconds;
- Processing and routing of all incoming user requests within 4 hours;
