A well run customer service desk can affect how anyone interacting with your business perceives it instantly.
Now compare this to a customer service person that answers quickly, in a few seconds pulls up your file, notes what the problem is or even sees notes in your file that indicate someone is working on it now. Even if the problem doesn't get solved over the phone, you hang up feeling like they will get to the bottom of it quickly. An organized customer service desk can be the difference between these two calls.
The Cloud as Service DeskOf course, the great advantage today is that the cloud allows us to have personal service desks that handle individual requests through email. No matter how small your business, having this portal will give your company an air of professionalism. With cloud software allowing all members of a team to log in and record updates via tablets or smartphones, clients will always feel in the loop for any projects or requirements.
The other advantage is that with a software run cloud-based customer service desk your clients can email requests, log in to see how that request is being handled and never feel ignored. It is all too easy for human error to leave out a message or forget a request. With this type of customer service desk your personnel can focus on giving great customer service while the software handles the daily tasks of moving the request forward to the right party.
