A cloud communications provider was experiencing an alarming increase in trouble tickets being elevated to Tier 3 support.
Upon further investigation, a majority of these tickets were attributed to recurring issues such as one-way audio and choppy voice quality. Management challenged the support teams to retool their escalation process.
