The Basics Call Center Customer Service by Stephanie Orange
Focus  on your customer Don’t  be  distracted Stop surfing and socializing and
Make a good First Impression Be everything you would expect and want to your  customer  as you would for  yourself
Let them  hear  your  smile Welcome them with your tone and greeting
Listen  actively use  acceptance responses  so they know you are listening repeat all  critical elements  so they know you understand paraphrase   to confirm understanding ask  clarifying questions  when necessary
Be  prompt Answer the phone with the designated amount of rings.
You’re not a  turtle Time is valuable, don’t be slow
So have a sense of  URGENCY ! Empathize with their problems, treat them as your own, and they are important!
If you  don’t know It is okay, it’s not the end of the world.  No one knows everything…
But… NEVER, EVER say that you… It’s our responsibility to get the answers they need.
That’s  frustrating ! When we say we do not know the answer it is a dead  end to the user.
Use  all  of your TOOLS Use your resources: your knowledge base, internet, your Subject Matter Experts, your co-workers, and anything else you need to in order to get them their answer.
Because you need to… Find out It’s the only reason we’re here
and  call them back Promptly.
Don’t leave them on HOLD  Ask permission & keep an eye on the clock. Don’t leave them waiting!
they’re  waiting  for  you so tell them what to expect (research, calling someone, etc)
When  they’re MAD They are just  upset about  the problem
Don’t take it  personally Even when it sounds like they are mad at  you
They just need their  problem fixed Remember: It’s why they called.
Don’t be  afraid We have all been there & walked the same roads.
to  ask  for You won’t have the answer for everything, so ask someone to help you when you need it.
from your  manager
… or seek
from your co-workers Sometimes you need tribal knowledge
Diagnose to  After you ask all the right questions
or  fix  their problems! We’re responsible to fix certain things on the  first contact!
Document well Remember to Case notes are  very  important for yourself, the customers and sometimes others that may need to fix the issue.
Check that there aren’t     missing pieces Give your notes a good review to make sure you haven’t  missed any important bits of information. Fill in any pieces that need clarity.
Keep  Smiling Build a good customer relationship.  Create a devoted customer.
Have  confidence   in   yourself You’ll do better than you think.
and a good  attitude… because you  Can Do It!
by Delivering on your promises Customers will remember when you make a promise, so always  deliver what you say you will.
Don’t forget
To have Take a deep breath. Sometimes they don’t know, so you have to teach them.
Say  Otherwise you may sound demanding and impatient.
and Because everyone likes to be thanked.
Go the  extra mile  &   Always It helps to create the devoted customer that wants to come back.
Be   prepared for  a long and winding road (sometimes)
…  and one last thing … make them happy they called
Is there anything else I can help you with?
