In today’s world, your customers have a plethora of different options when it comes to choosing their service providers. That’s why it’s imperative that your reps make their experience as positive as possible! The question is; how do you address the needs of your modern customers and foster a sense of loyalty that will benefit your business for years to come?
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. If customers’ expectations are much higher than the restaurant can deliver on, or if the restaurant dramatically misses the mark, the difference can be boom or bust for the business.
We recently had the pleasure of sitting down with some of the brightest minds in the customer service and customer experience industry. Thought leaders in customer experience, customer service, and call centers all weighed in on the biggest trends impacting the industry.
For online retailers, customer service can be a huge differentiator, and a secret weapon for customer advocacy. Customer expectations today are higher than ever, and the customer support training, resources, and investment required of today’s leading retailers can make the challenge of creating amazing customer care experiences seem insurmountable.
The holiday season is the most critical time of the year for retailers - they can make 40% of their revenue during these few months - and inspiring customer loyalty at this point of the year can make a huge impact. In fact, it’s your last chance.
There are many facets to any successful call center, either in-house or outsourced. All of these elements must be taken into account for a COO or Head of Customer Experience to measure and understand the return on investment of their customer support center.
One of the pillars of holiday customer care in 2015 is omnichannel support. Retailers cannot have any downtime across channels, from phone support, to their website, email, live chat, or on social media. Customers want to shop early in the morning and late at night during the holiday season, and brands have it in their best interests to accommodate their shoppers by almost any means necessary.
Holiday season is here, earlier than ever. With a 40% increase in sales during the holiday shopping season for some retailers, it’s the most important time of the year to ensure customers are left with a great experience- from website usability to customer support to fulfillment.
