Few things (if any) are more important than good quality customer service in the current business environment. It is what sets you apart from the rest in the industry!
Of course, price has been and will continue to be a deciding factor in whether the customer opts do business with a brand or not, but it’s the quality of service that will drive customers to come back each and every time. Let’s understand this with the example of our individual choice of retail outlets. Every one of us will have at least one outlet that we will avoid at any cost, and similarly we will have that one outlet which we will prefer over others. And most probably the reason for this would be something to do with the way we are treated at these outlets.
With this in mind, we have put together a list of four key differentiators that you have to implement right away to provide great customer service in current times-
1. Make Multi-channel Support the New Norm of Business
Not all customers prefer to get support from brands in the same way; some will be more comfortable picking up the phone, other will want to interact via SMS, email or social media.
Hence make sure that your customers’ most preferred ways of getting the answer they are seeking is available at all times.
2. Implement Appropriate Performance Monitoring
Keep a track of how well you are doing with regards to customer service. Monitor customer feedback and complaints regularly, and if you see a pattern or notice areas of improvement, make sure that you address them.
3. Empower Your Customer Service Team
Ensure that your customer service team has access to the information that they need, and the power to solve every customer queries on their own.
4. Get the Focus Back on the Customers
It is not just the responsibility of your front-line agents to deliver outstanding customer service. Make sure that every employee of your organization has the customer at the center of what they do every day.
