There are many factors that, when combined, create an outstanding customer service experience. Several years ago, Genesys conducted a survey to find out the most significant factors that lead to a satisfying customer service experience. They surveyed over 9,000 consumers and found the top four factors to be:
- Competent customer service representatives – 78% of respondents
- Convenient communication channels – 48% of respondents
- Better Human service – 38% of respondents
- The company was proactive in reaching out to them – 37% of respondents
When you look at this list and think about your own customer service experiences, it is easy to see how these things either did, or could have, created an outstanding customer service experience.
Consumers also indicated they prefer more proactive outreach. Over 85% said proactive engagement is a “strong benefit” or they welcome “proactive assistance” when stuck on the web or in self-service, which broke down as follows:
- Strong benefit – 48.8% of respondents
- Welcome proactive assistance – 41.7% of respondents
- Not Interested – 9.5% of respondents
