7 Essential Skills of the Excellent Customer Service

986 555 Evaluate Indonesia

Customer service has a very strong impact for a business. Pepper Rogers & Group saying that 81% companies with strong capability and competency for delivering the service excellence will outperform the competition.

But, it’s not easy to accomplish that. Business leaders have been racing to find the right formula to create an excellent service team. There are various studies already explaining the mandatory skills of Customer Service Representatives (CS Reps.) to deliver a service excellence. Among hundreds, we highlight these 7 as “the must have skills” for an excellent Customer Service Representatives.

1.  Acting

Acting is not about pretending to the customer, but it is more about the proficiency in self-control. We know that CS Reps. face various situations and customer’s complaints every day. The great CS Reps. have to control themselves well, no matter what mood state they’re in and no matter how the customers treat them.

Keep in mind these valuable formula:

  • Be calm whenever the customer is panic
  • Be patient when the customer starts to be rude
  • Be positive and optimist when the customer starts to pessimist
  • Be professional whenever the customers being personal

2.  Empathy

“70% of buying experiences are based on how the customers feel they are being treated.” said McKinsey. Customers commonly want to be treated as a human being with decent feeling. Therefore, in this case, it is essential for the CS Reps. to fairly understand and feel the customer’s feeling.

80% experience discover that the CS Reps. never ask their customer’s name (Content Point Client Research). In fact, one of the simplest ways to empathize the customers is by paying attention to their name. Moreover, CS Reps. also have to be able to listen to the customers carefully to find out what the customers really feel and need.

3.  Persuasive communication

78% customers said that a happy customer experience comes from the competent customer services (Genesys Global Survey, 2009). An excellent CS Reps. should be able to persuade their customers that they are the competent and the right person to help.

The proof of a competent CS Rep. is that they are knowledgeable about their company, so they can provide the right answers to the customers and give them the most effective solution. Additionally, persuasive CS Reps. definitely can switch the problem into a solution and push the customer to be loyal to the company.

4.  Positive communication

The customers who calls the CS Rep.  are commonly panic, confused, and pessimist. An excellent CS Rep. must be able to calm them down and raise their optimism.

Therefore, it is a must for the CS Rep. to always use the positive words and the mild intonation while speaking to the customers, in every situation. Focus on the solution. Don’t ever forget to show gratitude as the customers being patient and understanding.

5.  Straightforward

Your customers don’t just want you to calm them down. Specifically, they demand the right and helping answers. In this case, a CS Rep. must give them the clear information.

A straightforward communication is built holistically; from the way of speaking, pronunciation, intonation, the choice of words, to the volume. Hence, the company has to provide the communication training simultaneously for their CS Reps.

6.  Responsibility

Many experiences prove the customers are more satisfied seeing the CS Reps. work hard in finding the solution, whether that solution isn’t work well. Because, this effort shows the responsibility on their job.

Furthermore, responsibility is also shown on how the CS Reps. handle the customer’s request. FYI, the customers hate when you transfer them back and forth. If the CS Reps. understand the brand and the product well, and so the exist guidance and protocol, they can surely help the customers with no need of transferring them to the other staffs. But if they have to, please make sure that they know exactly who are the right person to reach and how to reach them a.s.a.p.

7.  Time Management

Service excellence means punctuality. There’s no customer likes to face the late reply/late answer from the CS Representatives. For this reason, it is a must for an excellent CS Rep. to manage their task priority well and know how to manage the work duration.

You can start building a good time management by manage time to these tasks: replying email, answering the phone, holding the phone or chat, and doing follow up.

The Principal Rules to be An Expert Mystery Shopper

986 555 Evaluate Indonesia

As explained before, mystery shopper is a challenging job. As a profession, mystery shopper has a specific qualification that means not everyone can do it right. This job is not suitable for them who’s just love shopping.

A great mystery shopper is the dutiful one. It means, the shopper fully understand the rule/direction, scenario, and the work schedule provided by the client, while also doing all of it during the mission. The more comply the shopper, the more capable them in making a significant professional report.

Furthermore, for those interested to be a mystery shopper, please noted these principal rules.

    1. Doing visit
      1. In order to observe the true nature of the performance from a customer service strategy standard, a shopper is suggested to conduct the visit during rush hour. The natural behavior of the employees would clearly be seen while they’re dealing with a hectic situation.
      2. The shopper’s appearance and behavior should be natural just like the ordinary customer. Be sure that you’re not drawing attention and looked more prominently than the other people around. Paying attention in overall aspect, from the way of dressing, communicating, even to your gesture. Avoid asking too detail to the employees, unless it’s ordered by the client.
      3. Don’t let your temper affect your work, especially when you facing the unwilling condition. Also, don’t let your mood determine your performance and disturb your job that day.
      4. Collect the itemized receipt instead of payment receipt. The itemized receipt contains the detail item and price per item you’ve bought. Keep this receipt in the safe place.
    2. Writing report
      1. Write your report as soon as possible, while the experience still fresh in your memory. The more you delay the report, the more fading the detail in observation. Although, it doesn’t mean that you have to directly write the report while you still on the mission, even at the obvious place where the employees can see your activity. If you want to write it right away, just move to the more private spot, such as the fitting room or the toilet.
      2. Write the report as detail as you can. Describe the experience clearly to explain the behavior. Example, write “the employee A was greeting me with a huge smile as I walk into the store. She shook my hand and directly asked what I need”, instead of “the employee A is really nice”. Avoid giving your opinion on the report to maintain objectivity.
      3. Attach the complete documentation as the evidence of your visit. The primary documentations pervade the photo of the store, receipt, brochure/name card/pamphlet. You also need to mention the name of the employee that interacted with you on the visit and what did they offer to you.
      4. Check the report thoroughly. Use the spell checker application to avoid the typing error. While writing the report, always refer to the correct grammar and other basic writing rules. Moreover, never use the caps lock because it feels not polite in general (unless it’s specified)

To be the expert mystery shopper, always rely on this rules while running your mission. Do your task well and have fun shopping!

Mystery Shopping to Satisfy Customer, Is Once Enough ?

986 555 Evaluate Indonesia

If you want to make sure someone understand your message, what will you do? Repeat what you’ve said. If you want to make sure the truth about something, what will you do? Ask again. If you want to capable in doing something rightly, what will you do? Exercise again and again

Those three simple examples prove the power of repetition. Doing something more than once ensure us to get the more satisfying result. Lighthouse website even obviously said that “The power of repetition is any leader’s best friend”.

If you want to successfully satisfy your customer, don’t perform the mystery shopping only once. Otherwise, do this program regularly, at least once in a few months.

The main objective of repeating mystery shopping is to ensure the consistency. You need a thorough and steady assessment to ensure your strategy performance is always on track, since the customer service strategy is a long-term process.

The first mystery shopping will tell you the true nature of your customer service strategy’s performance. You will find out some important things, like; Do the employees treat the customers well? Are the existing SOP obeyed by the employees? The report from the first attempt will really help you in making a corrective plan as needed; such as training, counseling, reviewing the strategy, and so on.

On the next mystery shopping, you’ll be able to check the consistency of your employees’ performance towards a different shopper. Mystery shopping helps you to evaluate whether the corrective plan (that you took based on the result of the first shopping) is doing well and showing a result as expected or not.

On the other hand, performing mystery shopping for more than once also ensures you to collect the more accurate data, which might be missed or bias on the former visit. By all this, the observation result will definitely have the higher validation.

So, if you ask is that enough to perform mystery shopping once? The answer is undoubted NO. Mystery shopping has to be performed regularly to guarantee the research showing the accurate and effective result so the company could reach both the short-term and long-term goals.
