Imagine a situation where food has been ordered, the delivery boy delivers the food and asks the customer whether or not, he/she enjoyed the food. Yes, certainly the customer would not be in a position to answer the question since he/she has not even tasted the food. At the most the customer can comment upon the packaging of the food or delivery time or the way the food was served. But that would certainly not help the company understand whether the food supplied to the customer was up to his taste and met his expectations.
The best thing for any business is undoubted, witnessing a significant growth in its customer base. As much as it’s gladdening to see your clientele expand like never before, the news also brings along a new set of challenges for your business operations to overcome.
Social media today has gained an extremely powerful and wide reach, worldwide. This fact is well-recognized. It has gone way beyond just connecting long-lost friends, sharing pictures/videos and knowing new people.

Millennials are a self-service, tech-savvy generation influenced by the ever-growing sway of social media, instant gratification, and quick access.

Outsourcing anything is hard. It requires a lot of trust. But if you pick a bad partner, you can always cut your losses and move on. When it’s your customer service, though, it’s harder. It means you’re trusting someone else to care for your customers. If you pick a bad partner, you don’t just have to explain the bad investment to your superiors; you have to win back the trust of your customers.
Like most, you might think that all call centers offer the same services. If you search for a call center partner to handle some or all your customer service volume, you’re met with similar sounding pitches, similar pricing, and similar business models. On-brand support! Omnichannel coverage! White-gloved service!
Nothing builds your brand as effectively; nothing drives repeat purchases more quickly; nothing increases the value of your products and services more efficiently than your customer service.
What if I told you that the call center could be one of the biggest revenue generators in your entire enterprise? Today, the call center is seen by many COOs as a cost of doing business - a necessary evil - rather than as a revenue generating group.
When it comes to their food, customers are very particular. For fast-casual or quick-service restaurants (QSRs), managing customer expectations is a task of ultimate importance.
