Great Customer Service Training
"Warm Fuzzies" or Real Service?
"Service" is one of those wonderful, "Warm Fuzzy" words like "love" and "happiness." They are easy to say and sound so good, but unless they are backed with real substance, they mean so little.
"Service" is what we do to impress and retain our customers in this competitive society. The reality today is that most products and services in almost every industry appear indistinguishable from one company to the next. Since customers have many choices to choose from, it is "Service" that brings them back!
Customers really want three things with every purchase. They will shop around to find them and become loyal to those who provide them.
A solution to their problems or satisfaction of their
desires, as promised (the product or service.)
A trusted salesperson or consultant who has their best interests at heart.
"Value-Added Service" - service that exceeds expectations.
It takes effort and investment to create service systems, more effort and investment for customer service training to deliver the "Value-Added Service" but it is worth it all. Companies that provide these Value-Added Service Functions have higher retention rates, faster growth rates, and usually higher profit margins also!
