Customer Services - Winning through Customer Service

Customer Services - Winning through Customer Service

Wolf Management Consultants' "Winning Through Customer Service" teaches that while winning customers may be hard, keeping them is even harder. So what do customers really want? They want quick response, instant information, and solutions to their problems. In other words, they want exceptional Customer Service.

No organization can afford to lose customers because of poor service, but many do. Customers remember how they’ve been treated, and they spread the news. Studies show that they are likely never to buy from you again, even if you have exactly what they are looking for. When customers are pleased, they are likely to spend more on your product or service and will call again. When customer service representatives understand their role in this process, they will keep customers coming back.

Who in Your Organization Will Benefit?

  • Sales and Service Representatives
  • Service Managers
  • Anyone who has Internal and External customer contact
