Customer Service – Online Training

The online customer service skills training program is intended to show the proper procedures and processes needed to provide customer service in an effective and efficient manner. This program helps to prepare learners to work in a support center or help desk environment.

Good customer service skills and strong relationships begin with building rapport. Building rapport requires knowing your customer, understanding their situation, and providing an empathetic ear for them to voice their concerns. Building rapport can lead to great relationships between individuals as well as the company they represent.

It costs a business much more to acquire a new client than it does to retain an existing one. So it makes sense that a business must do everything it can to support and satisfy existing customers. Handling complaints effectively and efficiently can result in increased customer loyalty. Today’s customer service representatives and support centers have a vital role to play in ensuring customers’ needs are addressed in an effective, efficient manner.
