In recent years, many organizations have changed their focus. Rather than thinking about what they do in terms of products and services, they have started to consider the overall user experience and customer experience, and the outcomes they are helping their customers achieve. In this blog, our customer service manager Jelena Todorovska talks about the importance of customer service.
Serving customers and meeting expectations without any delay is the key to success for any business, small or large. It is the glue that keeps the customer and business together. Nowadays, especially with the corona lockdown, what truly matters is a company’s ability to offer uninterrupted 24/7 service and support to its customers.
Coronavirus or not, at ITSM Zone our team’s aim is to provide complete and unhindered accessibility to support for all our customers. Since day one, we have not allowed geographical boundaries or time zones to affect the provision of support. How do we do this?
Creating a vision for customer service
At ITSM Zone we offer a 24/7 helpdesk. Our customers are from all over the world and they can contact us at any time of the day or night. Whether they have a small inquiry, technical issues or any kind of request, our team can and will provide an answer in a short time.
By giving our best to fulfil their requirements we keep them focused on our products and services. We are building trust and creating loyalty. We know that by offering an exceptional customer experience they will remember us, return to us, and by word of mouth, spread the word about us. Word of mouth can be very negative or positive for an organization, depending on the experiences it delivers. I must admit, it gives me the great pleasure when somebody contacts us by referral.
When we hear that our courses, tutors, mentors and helpdesk help someone achieve their goals, that is when we know our job was done successfully. These comments are our rocks.
Go the extra mile in delivering support
But this service would not be possible without my team. It will take time to choose the perfect people, but it is very important that you have the right people in the position. You don’t want just anybody to take care of your customers. The essential skill is people skills.
A good helpdesk means that you’ll always be available for the customer, be attentive, anticipate their needs, listen carefully, have understanding, help and guide them, and provide the answer to their query. Go the extra mile in delivering support. In return you’ll receive a happy, returning customer, good reviews, personal satisfaction and who knows, a maybe even a salary bonus for a job well done ?
