Topic Takeaways:

  • Overall customer experience could be a defining factor for your brand. It entails how well the interaction was taken care of at that point in time, how satisfied is the customer with how your agents are doing, and it also helps you understand how customers perceive that entire experience with your brand.
  • The goal is to not just jump in front of your customers’ faces and interrupt their entire experience, but rather, to let people know that you’re always there to assist.
  • To streamline your process and achieve optimum customer satisfaction, you need to invest in automation tools and processes that can easily and instantaneously respond to FAQ’s and lessen agent interaction.
  • Initial response time should measure how soon you can address a customer so that you’re able to take the necessary action before customers drop off your page.

Tweetable Quotes:

Working in customer service is not just about paddling the inquiries, but if you’re able to fix that or improve something about your site or your store then people wouldn’t have to ask your CS team about the same inquiries over and over.
