We?ve recently surveyed our customers to see if our call center services were meeting their expectations.?? I?ve found to provide excellent customer service?it?s best to proactively obtain information from our customers whether the their input is complimentary or expresses concerns about our service.
A customer satisfaction survey is an important component of any relationship.? It shows
that you value your customer and the experience provided to them.? ?Ehow.com article states: Although many businesses are quick to placate customers who voice complaints, a business that pre-emptively strives to satisfy the customer makes an even better impression. This consideration of the customer?s opinions can foster loyalty in the long run and translate to repeat sales.
In another article it describes: A customer satisfaction survey is a very important tool that can provide benefits for businesses of every size. Surveys can assist business decision-makers in developing strategies to achieve the all-important goal of gaining and retaining customers. Results can play a key role in identifying areas of the business that require corrective action and improvement. Surveys can also identify areas that can be leveraged to achieve business growth and expansion.
As I stated in an earlier blog on the customer experience: Customer impact is worth?s its weight on gold.? Usually, the first impression is a lasting one, so we need to make very impression count.?
Whether a customer is paying for call center,? telephone answering service or other services, we believe it?s our responsibility to provide nothing less than what they pay for!? Customer satisfaction surveys help us gain our customers prospective of our service, while helping us to find what?s?working and what?s?not working in delivering services that will meet or exceed?our customers? expectations.
