On great support

- 5 MIN READ - 13 Jan 2015

For any company customer service and keeping all users happy is a big priority. Which is probably why a lot has been written about it.

I think we’ve seen close to a hundred blogs dedicated on the topic. So at times the number of available suggestions, tips and case studies can be a bit overwhelming.

Instead of trying to take in everything that has been written on the topic make your own customer support revolve around a few key principles. Ones you always keep in mind and really believe in.

Although yours might be different – here’s what we believe in:

Getting to know the customers point of view

Try and put yourself in the customers place is the key. Always be sure you get the full overview of everything right from the start as nothing can be more irritating than getting hit by the boomerang of inquiries with questions which could have been asked in the beginning.

Time is of the essence

Time is always an important factor when dealing with customers. It is important to let people know they are being listened to and their feedback is being addressed. Sometimes it is necessary to prioritise, but at the same time leave no input unanswered.

Timely answers that can be understood

What goes to answers, sometimes you have to give the solution as quickly as possible before you can go in depth. In these cases providing an easy conclusion without the technical jargon nobody understands is a must. It can always be followed up with a more in-depth answer.

Recently, I’ve had several discussions about company culture. And here’s a common question: How do you build a culture that supports growth and create a workplace that everyone’s happy being part of?

In today’s world, it feels like the technology changes faster than we can keep up. As technology becomes even more ingrained in our lives, it’s obvious, that for our own good, regulations need to evolve as well. And it’s extremely important that business owners and leaders understand new regulations to adapt in the best way possible.

Scrub customer databases and make SMS more effective

31 Oct 2017

It’s often that we are asked, “what is your average delivery rate in (fill in the blank) country?” People usually expect an answer like, “98%.” Yet cost efficiency and SMS conversion is more important than a percentage number; without context it doesn’t mean anything.

The more important question pertains to how delivery rates are calculated. Let’s point out that there are mobile operators in some countries that do not send delivery reports, or if they do, they are unreliable. Is the delivery rate statistic based on messages sent and the number of messages that received a “delivered" status? That is the most common and brutally simplified way to calculate delivery rate. First of all, in fact, it is best practice to start with clarifying whether or not the mobile number databases contain phone numbers that are deliverable.
