Here´s how to liberate your customers from customer service, keep them happy, and control costs.Most customer-service operations have it wrong. They gauge their effectiveness and productivity based on the number of customer calls or contacts they handle. But do your customers really want a ´´relationship´´ with your company´s customer service department, or do they simply want to purchase your products or services so they can put them to use?In this groundbreaking audiobook, Bill Price and David Jaffe offer a new, game-changing approach, showing how managers are taking the wrong path and are using the wrong metrics to measure customer service. Customer service, they assert, is only needed when a company does something wrong - eliminating the need for service is the best way to satisfy customers. To be successful, companies need to treat service as a data point of dysfunction and figure what they need to do to eliminate the demand.The Best Service Is No Service outlines seven principles to deliver the best service - which ultimately leads to ´´no service´´: Eliminate dumb contactsCreate engaging self-serviceBe proactiveMake it easy to contact your companyOwn the actions across the company Listen and actDeliver great service experiencesWhile self-service and customer relationship management are often tech-heavy and software-driven efforts, Price and Jaffe emphasize that no technology is needed to adopt a ´´no service´´ mindset - and any manager who tries to ferret out dysfunctional contacts between customers and companies can create far better, self-correcting systems.
