What’s in a score? A customer scorecard provides various  metrics  to help your company assess the quality of its  customer service communications . It’s an open, honest and transparent way of letting your customer service team know where they’re knocking it out of the park and where they may need to go back to the drawing board.  Rome wasn’t built in a day. Similarly, it takes time to construct a meaningful customer scorecard that will stand the test of time. This is where surveys come in. Conducting a customer satisfaction survey (or requesting completion of a customer service evaluation form) is an age-old method of measuring customer ...

Delivering  five-star customer service  is easier said than done. But the good news is that your company doesn’t have to be a world-beater to deliver world-class customer service.  While the brands that lead in delivering world-class customer experience  tend  to be global players, it doesn’t mean they have a monopoly on providing elite-level customer service. The truth is your company doesn’t have to be part of the Fortune 10, Fortune 100 or Fortune 500 to make the grade. Whether you’re a fledgling startup on the local scene or a corporate giant with global reach, providing world-class customer service is well within your grasp. World-Class ...

Every day customer service heroes work hard to deliver radically personal service to customers —where customers feel known, valued, and experience service that feels effortless. This is the story of one such customer, Michael. And his customer service hero, Stephanie. … Meet Michael. Michael’s 10th year wedding anniversary is coming up in less than a week (yay!) But he’s just found out that his wife bought the same pair of earrings he’d been planning to surprise her with. That means he needs to get a new gift—and fast. “Can I get it yesterday?” Michael calls the customer support line of Baubles, the store he bought his wife’s earrings ...

Customer service heroes make their job look incredibly easy. But while they might resolve a customer’s issue in a single email, phone call, or chat session, it’s usually the result of a lot of behind-the-scenes work— by them, and the organization at large. Whether it’s liaising with the warehouse team to check if something is in stock. Or the back-and-forth emails with Fulfilment to see when a delivery is due; what might seem like a minor customer request usually requires an accordion of tasks and coordination to resolve. And when you multiply that by the hundreds of customers being helped in a day—that’s a lot of work to keep track of. Gladly’s Tasks ...

In a world of on-demand delivery and television on tap, customers today are starting to expect near-immediate satisfaction in all aspects of their lives. And that poses an interesting challenge for companies trying to deliver to their customers’ satisfaction—how can you provide quick resolution to their questions and issues, while still providing your customer service representatives the space to build the all-important relationships that keep customers loyal? The answer—as with many things in life—is technology. And more specifically, artificial intelligence (AI). Granted, we haven’t reached the AI dreams promised to us in ‘The Jetsons’ (Astro, ...

Making customer service radically personal starts with making it effortless for your customers to reach out on whichever channel works best for them. And while a part of that means being there for your customers on the channels they want to be on, it’s also a lot about making their experience on that channel the best it can be. For 53% of customers, that great experience means being able to find answers wherever they are, rather than being directed to a new page, window, or channel. Today, we’re excited to move the needle on the mobile experience with the launch of our mobile in-app chat, which will allow your customers to chat directly with you in ...

Customers have more options than ever to get in touch, but voice continues to be the top channel they turn to for support. Here’s how we’re making the voice experience better for customers. Nothing can replace the power of the human voice. And, while it may feel like no one talks on the phone these days, it remains the top channel that customers turn to engage with companies on , especially when they want answers fast. Yet there’s no doubt that while experiences with customer service over the phone can be amazing, they can also be equally as frustrating. From seemingly endless options to choose from (think ‘press 1 for support, 2 for ...
