The tricky balance during the pandemic…have you reduced your staff inline with your reduced sales, but reducing staff has only lead to a reduction in the quality of your customer service? If you’re battling to keep on top of customer enquires, and your customers are having long wait times just to reach you on the phone, we have 2 great solutions!

Use one of the solutions to boost your customer service, use both to offer a bullet proof solution!

It’s during the tough times that you could really put things in place that streamline and strengthen your business model, and see you coming out flying against your competitors! Customer service matters, and it’s remembered. Treat your customers well now, and business loyalty will reward you in the future.

You don’t need to bring your staff out of furlough, or hire new staff when your enquiries and sales can be so unpredictable. Don’t put a further financial strain on yourself and your business, instead turn to us for support when you need it, and only when you need it.

Solution 1
If your customers are having to wait in a queue on the phone to reach you. Turn to a telephone answering service like ours at CSnotepad. Here’s why…

We have multiple lines, so multiple calls can be answered at the same time.

Our customer service advisors will be trained on your business, getting to know your products and your services. They’ll answer calls with your own personalised business greeting, and your callers will never know they haven’t reached your business directly.

We can do more than just answer the phone! We can deal with enquiries, process orders, take payments, chase up deliveries, deal with distributors, mail out product information, book in appointments…the choice is yours!

Due to our constant investment back into our service, we’re even able to offer a personal service to your customers by using our caller recognition software. This enables us to recognise your repeat callers, top customers and valued supplies, and offer them the same warmth of service you would.

We have multiple contingencies in place which means should external technology let you or us down, such as problems at a BT exchange hub, we have workarounds that enable you to stay available to your customers, when you’d otherwise find your business down!

You’re always in control of when you use us. Don’t be concerned about having a service that you wont always need. We can be waiting in the wings for whenever you have an unexpected peak in your calls, and customers are queuing. At other times when call volumes are more manageable you can take the calls back in house to manage yourself. You are always in control of your divert. Alternatively, a lot of businesses find that as their confidence in our service grows and grows with time, they choose to permanently divert their calls to us, freeing up their time to focus on the areas of their business that really warrant it.
