Providing excellent customer service is pivotal for businesses seeking a competitive edge. Customers who experience exceptional service are more likely to engage in repeat business, spending an average of 33% more than new customers. Well-trained and supported customers, guided by an exceptional support team, tend to share positive experiences, attracting new customers who are four times more likely to use the services. Conversely, 89% of consumers stop doing business with a company after poor customer service.
While most companies believe they offer a superior customer experience, a White House consumer study found that only 8% of their customers agreed. Bridging the gap between perception and reality is best achieved through post-interaction feedback. This eliminates the guesswork and allows organisations to understand and improve their customer service experience.
Here are three common customer service mistakes and ways to overcome them:
Long waiting times: Extended wait times and delays disappoint customers, sometimes leading them to choose alternative providers. Support managers must identify the causes of process delays and take action to overcome them. In the parking industry, where time is of the essence, Drivers HelpDesk, a leader in call centre solutions, ensures swift responses to intercom calls and prompt resolution of barrier-related issues.
Passing customers instead of problems: When customers contact support, they expect the representative to resolve their issues, not redirect them to another agent, forcing them to repeat their concerns. Although issues may need to be escalated to the most qualified agent or department for the best solutions, businesses should establish processes to handle these escalations without requiring customers to make multiple calls. Drivers HelpDesk empowers support representatives to efficiently handle diverse parking-related issues, preventing customers from repeating themselves, as the representative has full access to the required information and history.
Lack of communication between teams: While customer satisfaction is commonly perceived as the sole responsibility of the support department, the reality is that achieving excellent customer service requires a collaborative effort from all teams within the organization. In our context, at Drivers HelpDesk, our commitment to seamless solutions goes beyond the parking industry. We ensure that our weekly reports and information are accessible to all departments, fostering an environment where the entire team collaborates and supports each department’s unique needs. This inclusive approach enables us to address a spectrum of challenges, from handling intercom calls to resolving intricate barrier issues, ensuring comprehensive support for every facet of our operations.
Struggle with out-of-hours support: Acknowledging the industry’s challenge with the out-of-hours support, Drivers HelpDesk extends its assitance beyond regular working hours. Our dedicated team is available 24/7 ensuring continuous support for your parking facility even during peak hours or unexpected situations and events. This commitment reinforces our dedication to delivering a truly exceptional service experience.
