Communication is the most important tool for any association to flourish. Right? Well, not completely. ‘Right’ communication along with persistence is the key to make yourself hear loud. This very thought has been instilled into each and every team member at eZee, helping them to tie the loose ends at every situation.
This month we have another praise worthy incident from our Cloud Deployment Engineer- Parth Pol, who successfully put forward an incredible example of diligence and patience.
Last month, for a particular date, it was found that we had requested to update Stopsell on Premium Room for a property. However, while updating Stopsell on a leading OTA we got an error because of some server problem from their end. As a result, the Stopsell did not get updated and we received an overbooking.
As a testament, Parth sent the XML log to them stating the error that we received and the eventual consequence.
After few days, their representative got back to us via mail saying that they are willing to refund the money, provided we tried to update the Stopsell at least “3-4 times” after getting the “blank response”.
Parth sent the screen-shot of our multiple attempts to the representative who further forwarded the issue to their NOC (Network Operations Center) team. There was no reply for many days, but Parth continued with the follow up. It took nearly 22 days for their NOC team to reply that there was no issue with their server on that particular day. In short, it was implied that there will be no case of refund in the picture. Still determined to get the issue straight, Parth replied that if the server was up then why we did not get any response from sever!
To fault anyone at this stage would have been pointless, but they showed us red light with a reply- “This is not an issue from our end.” Parth did not let this go easily. He mailed the “blank response marked in red” again and asked to find the “loophole” at their end. Also, if their server was alright then they should pass the XML logs for the same. It seems Parth had the foresight to know what would work because next day we got a call from them confirming that the refund process would be initiated. Parth relentlessly followed the case for a month and got the end result in our favour.
We have dabbled in many complicated issues over all the years, and like always, our specialized team members ensure that they are determined and equipped enough to stand as a unit with our guests whenever the need arises. While we soak in the glory of this commitment tale, our team is gaining momentum and getting ready to take up another issue.
Because, at the end of the day, all this is for a higher purpose— 100% customer satisfaction.
