Staffing solution enables customer-service upgrade
Last fall, ITD's Motor Carrier Services office was vastly understaffed due to retirements and promotions, which caused a backlog of phone calls and customer information/credential requests. In the interest of improved customer service and better internal efficiency, DMV staff collaborated in order to find a solution.
Liu said the opportunity to respond to calls was a good reminder about the overall operations of Motor Carrier Services.
"It helped me stay sharp," said Liu, who has worked for the transportation department for almost five years. "And I wanted customers to have a good experience."
The Sage Junction Port of Entry also helped clear the backlog of calls. Between the two ports of entry, over 150 phone calls were cleared, with an average time of 5:47 per call.
