What we do, and how we work, to make sure you get the most from the courses you attend
Giving That Competitive Edge

In today's rapidly changing business world, the key to a successful organisation is not only about providing a quality product or service, but also about delivering great customer care. Simply being good is not enough any more -- you need to be better than that if you want to stand out from the crowd and surpass your competition.

Whatever product or service they are looking for, customers have a wide range of options and different brands to choose from, most of which are equally great. With such a tough competition, the only way to distinguish yourself from other businesses is to go out of your way to help your customers and provide an excellent customer service. Customer service training can help you learn how to do that, helping you retain your existing customers and outshine your competition in no time.

Why is Customer Service training necessary?

Many business owners know that customer service is important, but most don't realise just how significant a role it plays in success. Here are just a few reasons why investment in this area will help drive your business forward.

Customer Retention

According to Harvard Business Review, the retention of just 5% of customers can lead to increased profits of 25-95%. Considering 82% of all customers cite service as a reason for jumping ship, it's clear that the important of staff being properly trained should not be underestimated.

More Sales Per Customer

Great customer service will not only help you retain customers, but will also encourage more business from each. This explains why some businesses are able to double their profits simply by retaining customers that would otherwise leave due to poor service.

New Customers

Word of mouth and reputation serve as fantastic tools in customer acquisition strategies. People don't just want a great product, but also want to be sure they'll receive superior treatment, attention, and service. Existing customers can entrench your reputation in your industry - all it takes is making a small investment in improving your customer service delivery.

What You Will Learn From Customer Service Training

Whether your staff members come into contact with customers face-to-face, on the phone, or through email and chat support programmes, customer service training will make a tangible difference:

  • Learn to Understand Customers
  • The Importance of Meeting (and Exceeding) Expectations
  • How to Remove Barriers to Communcation
  • A to Z of Telephone Handling, from Greetings to Taking Messages and Phrases to Avoid
  • When to Say No!
  • Problem Solving and Tackling 'Tough' Customer
