What will I learn in Call Center Customer Service Training?

In addition to best practices, you will learn how to be courteous and pleasant to customers and effectively communicate to determine people’s concerns and answer questions clearly and efficiently. Customer service is an important part of the promise your business makes to its customers and critical to its success. 

Customer service plays an important role in an organization’s ability to generate income and should be included as part of an overall system improvement approach.  Customer service concerns the priority an organization assigns to customer service relative to components such as product innovation and pricing. Remember: One good customer service experience can change the entire perception a customer holds towards the organization.

It is safe to say, most call centers you deal with fail to deliver superior customer service. No one was born knowing this skill…it is a learned trait. How can you expect to provide the kind of customer service that wows your customers if you do not train to do so? 

Poor or no customer service training can have a devastating impact on the bottom line. It costs you six times more to attract a new customer than to keep an existing one.  A typical dissatisfied customer will tell eight to ten people about their problem.  Seven of ten customers will do business with you again…if you resolve the complaint in their favor.  If you resolve a complaint on the spot, 95% of customers will do business again.  Of those customers who quit, 68% do so because of an indifferent attitude by the company or a specific individual.  

From the customer’s perspective, service over the phone is a consumer-focused service like other service industries. Working professionals will learn how to optimize customers’ experiences just as business operators in retail stores and banks, colleges and universities, and the travel industry do for their customers.
