customer service technology

Some of the ways we approach great new customer service technology often create unnecessary rifts in the customer experience. What should you know before you upgrade?

New customer service technology wins and fails

What happens when we adopt great new customer service technology, but the front-line staff isn’t trained for it? We’ve all been in that situation where a customer service rep has to tell us, “Uh, this is new. Gimme a minute.”

Before you blame the employee, there are several reasons this can happen. Among them, these are the most prevalent:

  • The staff is resistant to change
  • The staff did not receive adequate training or instructions
  • The new technology isn’t set up properly

Whatever the reason, unnecessary frustration and wasted time for customers is the real problem. How do the best companies get ahead of this?
