Nowadays, in the age of the digitally connected customer and omni-channel support being widely available, it is vital for companies to adopt a customer centric support approach to customer service.

Many companies, while working to improve their product and service offerings can often get too caught up in their inner workings and forget to pay attention to the opinions of their customers. Adopting a customer centric service approach ensures that your customer will always be at the core of your business.

Customer centric support: What are its benefits?

A customer centric support service doesn’t just offer your customers a great service but provides them with a positive experience from their very first interaction with your brand. It is a well-known fact that customers are faced with numerous choices when it comes to deciding which brand they will invest their money and time in. Due to this, it is those customer centric companies that build valuable relationships with their customers from the beginning that always come out on top.

  • Builds Brand Trust and Credibility – One of the most important benefits of providing a customer centric support service is that it helps to build brand trust among your customers. When customers feel that their needs are of importance and that their opinions are being heard by a company they are more likely to refer your business to others.
  • Reduces Customer Attrition – If your support services are consistently putting the customer at their core and are providing a positive customer experience with every interaction, there is a higher chance that your customers will stay loyal to your company. A valued and respected customer is less likely to be enticed by a competitor.
  • Provides real time customer insight – In order to provide an excellent customer experience, knowing your customer is essential. Using tools such as an integrated CRM system as part of a customer centric support service give you access to a wealth of knowledge surrounding your customers interactions with your company. This data provides your business with real-time information, helping you to anticipate your customer’s needs and provide seamless customer support. Offering a personalised support service like this offers value to your customers.
  • Gives your business a competitive edge – Those businesses that offer their customers a personalised and customer centric service leave a lasting impression which leads to a strong brand image and reputation. This can boost referrals and prospective customers resulting in improved lead generation and overall company growth.

Call Pageboy Contact Centre believe that a customer should be at the core of all business activities. Our designated account managers and call agents make it their objective to understand both your business and your customers in order to provide a high quality, customer oriented support service.

While we have said this time and time again, but customers are still considered the lifeline of any business. This is why we invest so much in customer acquisition and retention, even focusing on customer service outsourcing to deliver expert service. Customer retention is always the more ideal goal, as repeat customers prove to be loyal customers and even develop into brand advocates.

How do we retain customers? Aside from obvious factors such as product quality and pricing, the biggest appeal for repeat customer is based on an emotional factor – they simply love shopping with you, and they like how you make them feel. And this emotional factor can always be traced to great customer service.

It has been proven that unhappy customers primarily discontinue supporting a product or service because they experienced poor customer service. Brand advocates, meanwhile, become loyalists and even spokespersons for a product or service because of great experiences… Read more.

Telemarketing can be a very effective tool for businesses of all sizes for lead generation and improving satisfaction among existing customers. The reputation of the service has gathered negative feedback in the past due to misuse. However, when used appropriately it can help a business build a personalised rapport with their customers.

Using an outsourced telemarketing service as part of your sales and marketing strategy can have multiple benefits for your business in terms of reaching more customers and reducing company overheads. This allows a business to focus on their core daily activities, stay productive and competitive while in the safe knowledge that an outsourced team is looking after their customers.

  • Personalised customer service: Providing customers with a personalised telesales service gives businesses the opportunity to connect with their customers and learn more about their needs. By identifying their opinions and thoughts on services and products, it can give businesses an immediate insight into customers satisfaction levels.
  • Brand awareness: When generating leads, telemarketing can be effective for building brand awareness. Whether you speak with a potential customer one-to-one or just leave a voice mail, by reaching out to prospective customers ensures that your brand is being heard by a new target audience. This makes it easier for a potential customer to recognise your brand name through campaigns from other channels such as social media.
  • Measurable results: Telemarketing campaign results can be analysed and measured in order to give a business a detailed insight into how successful a campaign has been. This is highly advantageous especially as it allows you to gather which telemarketing methods are most effective with customers e.g. using a call script vs using a more conversational technique.

Our mission is to fully understand your company and its customers in order to provide them with high quality customer service and support.

Due to the customer centric nature of the healthcare and pharmaceuticals industry, it is vital to provide an excellent customer service experience on an everyday basis.

There are many reasons as to why this may occur such as call volume demands or lack of staff. However, using an outsourced call centre can ensure that your company continues to provide unconditional support at all times.

The contact center industry continues a remarkable transformation as consumers set the customer service bar ever higher. Connected to the world 24/7/365 through mobile devices, consumers demand from businesses quick resolution of issues – both simple and complex – across all communication channels.

This year, companies operating in-house contact centers and providers of outsourced contact center services will continue to tap the cloud to support forward-thinking technologies and strategies aimed at meeting the needs of today’s mobile consumer. Thanks to the cloud’s seemingly unlimited computing power, artificial intelligence – in the form of customer service bots – will become more pervasive.

Contact center leaders will be challenged to allocate limited resources in an environment where consumers expect customer service “without limits.” With this in mind, let’s look at five trends that will shape contact center operations… Read more.

A great customer experience begins with a warm greeting from highly trained and knowledgeable call centre agents. In recent years, the expectation of customer service provision has increased greatly. With numerous ways to get in touch with a company and continuous developments in communication technology, customer satisfaction has become harder to achieve.

A call agent can have a huge influence on how a customer views a company. If your customer has an enjoyable interaction with a call agent, they are more likely to return in the future. If they receive a bad experience then you run the risk of losing a customer.

Making sure that call agents have the knowledge and skills needed to provide customers with the level of service they deserve can have a big impact on the overall reputation of a company. It’s important during the training process to make sure that call agents:

  • Have a great attitude – When you think about customer service agents, you imagine someone who has a friendly demeanour and a smile on their face, day in and day out. Ensuring call centre agents display an positive attitude and outlook when interacting with customers is essential to making sure that customers will receive a positive customer service experience when communicating with your company.
  • Have the appropriate product and service knowledge – There is nothing more frustrating for a customer than having their call answered by a call agent who is unable to answer their question. By providing high quality client specific training, call centre agents become experts in your business and can provide your customers with the correct support and help that they need.
  • Know how to display effective communication skills – Top notch communication skills is vital for working in a call centre environment. Training ensures that call agents know the correct way to handle an array of customer service scenarios. Each company will receive communication from customers who are disgruntled as well as satisfied with services and products. Call centre agents are trained to understand the customer’s needs, listen patiently, respond in a clear and warm tone and provide an effective solution to your customer’s problem while ensuring customer satisfaction during each interaction with the company.
  • Understand the correct escalation procedure – Agent training outlines the correct escalation procedures that should be taken by call centre agents. If the situation arises that a call agent is unable to resolve a customer’s query, they will be able to transfer the customer to the correct department without hesitation to ensure that the customer receives the appropriate support that they need.
  • Show a willingness to constantly improve – Customer service provision is constantly changing and developing. A call centre agent needs to be flexible to change and know how to adapt new customer service practices to meet customer needs. A high quality training program provides call agents with the skills to work towards targets and KPIs to ensure that business goals are met. By undertaking ongoing training and feedback, a call agent can ensure that their performance levels and standards are kept high.

Call Pageboy firmly believes that each call centre agent plays an integral part in delivering high quality call centre services. To ensure that our client’s customer is kept at the heart of everything we do, we focus heavily on encouraging and motivating our call centre agents to excel at their roles. Call Pageboy provides an initial induction programme and continuous training and feedback to our team through weekly meetings and quarterly training programs.

There is no denying that today’s customer has come to expect instant access to relevant information and personalised sales interactions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If a prospect comes knocking at your virtual door at 2 am and there is no answer, they may go straight to your competition, rather than wait until your sales staff returns at 9 am.

So how do you cope with an ever-connected marketplace when your physical doors are only open for one third of each day? Do you open your doors 24/7? Do you outsource some departments or automate some of your workflow? Do you rework your website to provide comprehensive information and self-service options? Or do you just give up?

With the exception of giving up, which is clearly not an option, any one of these may be opportunities for you to interact with your after hours customers. You just need to know how.

When you think about contact center jobs, you probably imagine people wearing headsets and answering calls in front of computer screens staring at call center software all over the world. These employees are the part of a company that is responsible for solving any problems that come up. When you think of people with contact center jobs, you probably don’t look in the mirror. Unless of course, you purchased a mirror that is giving you problems and you need to contact the company that produced it.

There’s a common misconception that these agents with headsets have the important contact center jobs. After all, they’re the ones digging into details, distributing information and ultimately “solving problems” related to customer support. But if you take a step back, you’ll realise that there’s someone else who is more important to the process: the customer.

The goal of customer centers jobs is not to produce the most helpful agents, it’s to produce the most satisfied customers…. Read more.

A new window pops up on an agent’s screen saying “Extra pillows would be great”. It’s an incoming text message from a customer who is planning to check into one of the hotel branches tomorrow, roughly 300 miles from where the agent, who works for the hotel chain’s contact center, is located. Within a few seconds, the message has been delivered to the particular property, signed off on as “received,” routed to room service who will ensure that there are, in fact, extra pillows upon the guest’s arrival, and a confirmation text has been sent to the guest explaining that it is no problem at all, and offering safe travels.

This type of on-promise/off-premise work-flow, utilising SMS as a communication channel, may seem a bit future-thinking. However, the technology to allow this approach, including the automated workflow, is here today. This example is specific to the hotel industry, but there are lessons that can be applied across more segments, and benefits that can be accumulated within any company in almost any industry.

Many companies within the IT and telecommunications industries outsource their customer support services such as help desk support and virtual reception in order to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction in a highly competitive economic environment.

Working alongside a 24 hour help desk support provider can prove to be beneficial for professionals within the IT and telecommunications industries. As both of these industries require in-house staff who are trained to work in a highly technical and fast paced industry, juggling this along with a large demand in customer queries can often lead to stressed and overworked employees.

Outsourced help desk support can offer IT & telecommunication companies numerous benefits when it comes to achieving customer service goals:

  • Reduced costs – It can offer companies better financial leverage. Due to its low fixed costs and no requirement to hire in-house, it greatly reduces costs for businesses while also leveraging overall ROI.
  • Great Flexibility – Due to the nature of the IT and telecommunications industries, customers can encounter issues at any time of the day. Whether they are experiencing problems with a software program or their internet connection is down, 24 hour help desk support ensures that your customers queries are answered whenever they may call.
  • Better management – Help desk support providers not only aid in customer support but also operate the necessary telephony systems, manage CRM and sales systems and advise data management teams. This gives IT and telecommunications companies the time resources and ability to focus on the daily core operations of their business.
  • Rapid response – As a service, it provides businesses with the benefit of a guaranteed quick response time. As call volumes rise, call agents can ensure that your customers issues are addressed immediately without delay.
  • Industry knowledge – All call agents are continuously trained in IT and telecommunications industry knowledge to ensure that they can offer a high level of customer service combined with the appropriate industry knowledge so that no customer problem or issue goes unanswered.

If you have an in-house call center, more than likely your inbound customer service inquiries have highs and lows. The peak times can be seasonally generated, due to new product or promotion launches, product recalls or other known issues. If your business has an in-house contact center that normally handles inbound calls, there may not be any issues managing volume during average operations. However, when capacity is at it’s peak, it may be smart to have secured an arrangement with an outsourced customer service provider who can help with overflow calls and social media inquiries.

There are some definite advantages to having an outsourced customer service provider.

For all business owners, ensuring that your company’s daily operations run smoothly while also delivering a high level of service to your customers is an ongoing priority. This is especially true for start-up and SME companies who are not only establishing their customer base but also their reputation as a loyal and trustworthy business.

As your business grows and call volumes rise, it is not always possible to hire additional in-house staff to handle growing customer demand. Using a virtual receptionist service can prove to be a cost-effective solution for many start-up and SME business owners. Outsourced virtual receptionists perform all the same duties as an in-house receptionist yet only work the hours that you need them to.

There are multiple benefits to hiring a virtual receptionist for your business especially when it comes to establishing customer loyalty:

  • Great customer service – The service makes sure your incoming calls are answered by a knowledgeable and respectful person. All call agents are trained in your business so that you can be rest assured that your customers are receiving a seamless customer service experience.
  • Service reliability – Virtual receptionists provide un-interrupted service to help manage your staff schedules when your in-house staff are unavailable due to annual or sick leave.
  • 24/7 call support – Many virtual receptionist services offer extended after hours support allowing your customers to contact your business when it is most convenient to them regardless of the hour of the day.
  • Maintain a professional image – When calls are being answered efficiently and professionally, it gives customers a great impression of your business. A virtual receptionist will answer your customers questions and refer them to the appropriate member of your organisation helping to give your business credibility.
  • Better time management – A virtual receptionist can help to increase productivity within your business. They will handle numerous administrative responsibilities giving you, as a business owner, more time to take care of the day-to-day business needs.

Call Pageboy Call Centre’s virtual receptionist service ensures that your customers receive the highest level of service at all times while adding to customer satisfaction, loyalty and overall customer retention for your business. Our call agents use a variety of methods such as call patching, SMS texting and email integration to ensure that your customers have all of their queries answered.

Call Centre and Babysitter: The Importance of Trust

Would you let a babysitter mind your kids without a reference from a friend or relative who could vouch for them? Choosing a call centre service provider for your customers should be treated in the same regard.

Think about it… you have a requirement for a call centre and as a business owner, you rely on them to carry out a high level of service for your customers. The service provider that you choose will be the first point of contact for your hard won customers and you are trusting them to represent your business and brand.

When choosing a trustworthy call centre service provider for your business, make sure to carry out and ask the following:

  • Site visit – First things first, arrange a visit to the call centre to see that it’s not just a flashy website and meet with the staff who will be speaking to your customers
  • Established – How long have they been in business?
  • Service Hours – Do they provide 24/7/365 after hours services?
  • Experience – What companies similar to your business do they provide service to?
  • Trust – Who can you contact for a service recommendation?
  • Quality – How do they train their staff and monitor your service?
  • Technology – Does the service provider have the latest technologies that can be of benefit to your business?
  • Location – Visit your chosen call centre every quarter for a service review

There will always be a cheaper service out there. Typically these providers are chosen over the phone, and six months later you are back to the drawing board due to a bad service. A bad service experienced by your customers. To avoid this, it is vital that you trust your service provider from the very outset.

Call Pageboy Call Centre strives to provide long term, trustworthy relationships to each of our clients and understands the importance of representing both your brand and business with the highest level of service provision and respect. We invite all of our customers to visit us on location and meet with the call agents who will be managing your service, speaking with your customers and becoming the voice of your brand.

Technology and customers evolve, and so must a company’s Customer Service process. Whereas once the focus was on automation, the technological advancements we’ve made and the nature of how customers are able to interact with businesses has changed the game to focus instead on customer engagement. Shifting to Collaborative CRM can help businesses stay on top of their customer service inquiries, raise their customer engagement and even retain customer loyalty.

What is Collaborative Customer Service?

Collaborative support is an extension of already implemented CRM, hinged on a new approach to customer service that uses software to bridge various teams and even departments with the goal of delivering a seamless customer experience. Using collaborative support software, customer support representatives are empowered to work together to solve tickets in a faster, more efficient way.

Technology is at the heart of collaboration. Collaborative features like internal chats, ability to create groups, ticket queues, and shared calendars are key to creating a strong support team. Therefore having the right customer support software that allows integration both between teams and various business groups will lead to a stronger and more unified customer support team that is always aware of new developments, inquiries, and issues and… Read more.

Property Management and Facilities Management Companies must be available to their customers 24/7/365. Things can go bump in the night and regardless of either low or high monthly call volumes, or call priority levels – An After- Hours Customer Service Helpdesk is key to retaining the customers you have fought hard to get!

Providing your own in house After Hours Helpdesk requires massive on going investment and staff management. Routing customer calls to a sister office in the UK, can lead to local familiarity being lost with call centre agents, and history has proven that if you are providing a service locally, you need a locally based Outsourcing Provider who’s staff are familiar with local customs, geography and language.

The benefits gained by effectively outsourcing these services to a Dublin Based Call Centre is twofold

  • After Hours Services – Your Customer Calls, Emails, SMS Text Alerts are seamlessly routed to CallPageboy at 5pm. Your CRM Integration, Call Priority Filtering, Workman Despatch, First Call Resolution, On Call Rota Management , Lone Worker Service are easily integrate.
  • Improved Customer Service – Call centre agents are expertly trained to adapt to a variety of clients’ processes. Due to this, our call centre agents can expertly handle different customer service scenarios that may arise. First call resolution is of upmost priority for our call centres agents in order to ensure a high level of customer service and advice provision.
  • Reduced Costs – CallPageboy provides companies with the ability to significantly reduce their operating costs when it comes to call and administrative management. By outsourcing your Property Management and Facilities Management Customer Service Helpdesk, you are reducing the costs associated with internal staff training and infrastructure needs as call centres utilise their own software, servers and telephony. Therefore, it allows your company to turn a fixed cost into a variable one; skilled labour is available to you but only when you need it most.
  • Flexibility – In-house staff can often be left at the mercy of periods of low or high call volumes which may often cause them to feel either idle or overwhelmed. Utilising a call centre ensures that call abandonment is not an issue during and between peak hours. Outsourcing overflow call management services can significantly improve service quality during these peak hours. Due to the number of staff resources available to CallPageboy, we have the capacity to quickly manage spikes in call volumes without the long waiting times. This provides companies with the opportunity to effectively manage their internal staff without sacrificing customer satisfaction levels.

By outsourcing your Property Management and Facilities Management helpdesk, in the event of a disaster your company can be rest assured that your call management and administrative processes aren’t affected and ultimately ensure business continuity.
