No matter what industry or aspect of business you are in customer service is essential. Customers include both external and external clients. Customers have more choices today than ever before, and do not hesitate to change supplier if they do not receive the level of service they feel they deserve.
A recent online article by Business News Daily (Read it here) looks at five best practices of customer service. While the article provides very insightful and useful details, the summary of the five practices are:
- Hire great people
- Make a great first impression
- Be pro-active
- Offer a seamless experience
- Treat customers as individuals, not demographics.
The full article will surprise you with what each of these actually entails, so I would invite you to review your business practices in light of these best practices and see what you might do to make your customers experiences world class.
