When consumers interact with a customer service representative and come away from it feeling more like they’ve encountered customer disservice, the results are fairly consistent: they go elsewhere to do business. To prevent this situation in your organization, consider outsourcing your contact center services.
It’s unfortunate that almost 80% of organizations think they’re offering “world-class” customer service, but only 8% of their customers agree. CDI reported in a customer service study that 79% of customers who receive bad customer service will tell others about it, which leads to a tarnished reputation. Among that 79% of people, nearly 90% of them will move on to a competitor to do business. This should be evidence enough to spur company leadership to invest more into finding quality customer care.
Outsourcing Your Contact Center
In-house contact centers often fall to people who don’t have the experience necessary to manage a high-functioning service, nor do they know what to look for in new hires who are qualified for this type of work. Time and again, company leaders are urged to seek outside help from professionals who make contact center work their full-time profession.
Specialized contact centers are able to pull from a pool of qualified applicants, educate them so they are completely prepared for the first day talking with customers and are provided with oversight to give them guidance when needed. Many also have highly talented oversight teams that will observe and reward positive results accordingly. In fact, some of the best contact centers will provide their employees a point system that allows them to promote from within. This is a method that facilitates empowering individuals, giving them even more motivation to improve upon their customer service skills.
