What is Customer Service Excellence?
Defining Customer Service Excellence
Can you define excellence? When we’re talking about customer service you can.
Customer service is providing customers with assistance.
However, customer service excellence is when you have a personalised, respectful, and smooth approach in that department.
“Excellent customer service is more than what you say or do for your customers. It also means giving customers a chance to make their feelings known.”
With customer service excellence you will provide customers with all the assistance for perfect customer experience. This approach needs to be applied before, during, and after.
