1 Why is customer service so important?
Many businesses nowadays are operating in a 100% virtual environment which can sometimes put customers in a difficult situation - unable to reach a real human being to answer their questions or help them make the right choice. That’s why, for both bricks-and-mortar and virtual businesses, excellency in customer service should be a number one priority in order to attract, serve and retain their clients. Because without customers there’s no company and no business.
2 Why should I consider providing 24/7 customer service?
Customer service is defined by the highest level of trust that your customers have in your brand or offering. By offering 24/7 service you will give your customers a sense of security in the professionalism of your company, gain valuable insights, increase revenues and minimize complaints, escalations and in actual fact costs too.
