Customer Service Post-COVID-19

As we move into the business reopening stage of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies in virtually every industry are facing new challenges in how they manage customer and prospective customer calls. Although many companies were able to function throughout the COVID-19 crisis, rules permeated by states and cities sending their populations into lockdown are experiencing different challenges.

Some may have an overflow of calls due to pent-up demand and the fact that it may not be possible to bring all of their operator staff back to work due to social distancing requirements. Many will need to reduce their costs for staff but need call overflow support more than ever to sustain their business.

One thing that all business leaders know for sure is that each call their companies receive is vital to their future. They are mindful that, in today’s environment, their staff’s ability to ensure a top-quality customer experience may suffer for many reasons, and that creating new processes to address this may take longer than expected to implement with an internal staff but are still desperately needed – and quickly.

When you work with a professional call center, you never miss an opportunity to please customers and grow your business.

A call center operates as a seamless extension of your customer service staff, providing all of what your call answering staff does – but adds significantly more value. Your costs are considerably less than hiring staff to take calls and call center operators can serve your customers and prospects 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The right call center understands your needs in each area and creates a customized program to meet them, train their staff in your business’s policies and procedures, and optimize inbound customer service call management.

There are a variety of customer service call functions a professional call center can expertly handle for you, including:
