If you work in a business that is customer-facing, there is no doubt that when it comes to customer service, it can be a struggle to achieve the best results possible under circumstances that are often less than ideal. Keeping up with customer queries, complaints or requests can often negatively impact the level of care you can provide – and that’s where outsourced customer service can be the ideal addition to your company.
Here are three ways that outsourcing the bulk of your customer service can actually make your customer care better:
1. Room to breathe
If your team is too busy spending time working with customers as and when queries come in, they often don’t get to leave the room to complete other vital aspects of a customer service role, whether it’s more complicated cases or even the management of other forms of service such as social media and email management.
Outsourcing over the phone management gives that bit of extra space for your customer service team to breathe; and allows them to do their jobs to a better, higher standard.
2. Proactive, not reactive
A proactive customer service team is one with happier customers – and the extra freedom from not covering phone lines and customer service calls can go a long way to set up the processes needed to anticipate concerns or issues.
For example, if multiple calls are coming in about the same issue, you then have availability to provide a guide, FAQ or other solution to the problem they are facing. This can then be distributed to all customer queries; leaving you with more time to improve your customer service and less time reacting to immediate issues.
3. No backlog
If you’re a smaller company, it’s likely you’re not able to offer customer service 24 hours a day, seven days a week, on an internal basis. Outsourced customer service not only provides your customers with the ability to talk to you whenever they need to but also prevents a backlog of unanswered contact that will take an age to get through.
