ITFT-Customer Service

  1. 1. Customer service is the provision of service to customers before, during and after a purchase. Customer service is a series of activities designed to enhance the level of customer satisfaction – that is, the feeling that a product or service has met the customer expectation.
  2. 2. Why do we need to treat the customers well? They are our bread and butter. They are the reason for my job. They are the reason the company exists.
  3. 3. Types of Customers •Current Customers: • Customers who do business with your organization now and in the distant past and continue to do so on both a regular and irregular basis. • A satisfied current customer is not just one that comes back to do business but one who is happy to make that choice. • New Customers: • Customers who are coming into contact with your organization for the first or second time. The concept of “moment of truth” impacts these customers the most. • Internal Customers: • Internal customers are those within the organization who do the day-to-day support work within the organization to ensure external customer expectations are met.
  4. 4. CUSTOMER SERVICE CHALLENGES • Lack of training • Lack of concern • Burnt out • Problems arising due to incentives & Bonus • CRS not believing in their own products & services
