Explosive growth and the MeetEdgar customer service approach
Thanks to its unique approach at customer service, MeetEdgar has grown from 2 to 30 employees in three years. So we’re proud to interview their head of customer experience, Kristina Quinones. Kristina shares how to use the same approach at your business!
The customer service team at MeetEdgar has struck a magical balance between customer service and customer experience. Not only do they deliver the best service possible, but they go beyond when customers need a little extra help. So what is their secret?
It’s not just about solving problems, answering questions, or eliminating friction. But rather, it’s about making that interaction a highlight in the customer’s day.
However, it’s trickier to create a great service experience that scales. So MeetEdgar has established a culture where everyone is heard and included. This helps keep known issues out in the open, consequently creating opportunities to improve and innovate.
So how can you create a customer service approach that not only solves issues, but makes customers’ days? Listen in to learn how MeetEdgar’s customer service approach makes amazing growth almost inevitable!
