The other day James was complaining about poor connectivity to his friends, and his friends seemed to experience the same problem. But what was remarkable about the whole discussion was that everyone facing the connectivity issue was more apprehensive about the call they made to the company to complain.
Their conversation was interesting – the issues they tried to fix with the help of Customer Support only multiplied, much like their frustration!
Harry: I really detest narrating my issue time and again to the representative attending my call.
Sandra: I’d be lucky if I get to tell someone my issue! I don’t get past the annoying music for eons!
James: I can relate to that! After that torturous wait, explaining your “technical” problem to ‘A’ who will only then route the call to ‘B’ is exasperating.
Phil: Tell me about it! By the time I get a technician’s call, I’ve lost valuable time and the whole purpose of ‘instant’ help is lost!
Isn’t it interesting? The “satisfaction” in customer service has apparently gone on-hold. With millions of customers to cater to, it can be expected that the troubles with service quality can queue up. The customers facing the service quality issues will always outnumber the customer service executives deployed. The telecom industry runs a business that is different and so it needs an across-the-board approach.
The checkboxes that the telecom service needs to definitely tick off are:
Connect your customers to awesome experience
When consumers get capricious, businesses need to pull some tricks from under their sleeves. It’s the “best-ever experience” feeling that will keep your customers from jumping ships – and your consistent awe-inspiring customer service will keep them unswerving!
Evoke Love at first sight
Ignite the spark because a new customer’s first impression is crucial. The process of activation may give rise to issues, and so it should be kept sweet and simple – for the customer of course!
Engage at all levels with increased customer service bandwidth
Serve consumers in the best way by reaching out to customers earlier in every process and empower them with all information and possibilities.
Just like James and his friends would, all customers love to have an ”always on” service. No one likes waiting, and especially if the wait is without information. Customers claim that their satisfaction runs hand in hand with the consistent delivery within promised service windows, and having the freedom and choice along with the accurate information about the appointment status. Customers also like to be heard and their needs and issues proactively addressed.
