Customer service has greatly evolved through the years especially with the advent of the internet, which opened more channels for businesses to be reached by its customers. With the rise of omnichannel support, a more personalized customer experience is made possible for clients.
Unlike multichannel, omnichannel offers consumers more than just different ways to get support. Instead, it involves a fully integrated and cohesive customer experience across all channels and devices. According to a survey by Aspect Software, businesses that adopt omnichannel strategies achieve 91% greater year-over-year customer retention rates compared to businesses that do not. Indeed, it is the future of customer service.
So when building your omnichannel support team, consider outsourcing from a reputable partner that can provide you access to world-class talents and A+ recruitment with lower costs. In turn, your dedicated team can help you deliver better service to clients and improve your revenue, which are crucial nowadays with a health crisis still affecting the economy.
Better customer service
First and foremost, outsourcing an omnichannel support team guarantees you provide better customer service to your customers. By providing them access to multiple easy options to reach you at any time of the day, you are able to handle queries and resolve issues on-time. At the same time, allowing them to be in-charge of which channel to use gives them a more personalized and empowered experience with your brand.
A positive experience will drive an increase in customer satisfaction and most likely lead to referrals and good reviews. According to a 2018 survey by Gladly, 80% of customers will recommend a company to friends and family after a great customer experience and 40% of those satisfied customers will share their story on social media. In turn, this will boost customer retention rates and bring more revenue to your business.
Improved efficiency and productivity
Relying on solely phone calls when it comes to your customer support may prove to be less efficient because an agent can only attend to one customer at a time compared to utilizing other channels such as SMS, email, live chat, and social media, which can cater to a big group at once. With your outsourced omnichannel support team, productivity can be optimized since they can focus on handling more complex issues, bringing real added value to your business.
One of the greatest advantages of outsourcing customer support is it allows flexibility when it comes to hours of operations depending on your business needs. Your remote customer support team can take calls and reply to inquiries even beyond your business hours, which ensures that no concerns get missed out. This is especially beneficial to businesses operating on an international level.
Outsourcing also proves to be scalable depending on the demands of your business. You can get additional support during peak season and end the contract when the business slows down.
In selecting your potential outsourcing company, make sure that it has:
- Access to world-class talent
- A+ recruitment process who can build a team in just 30-45 days
- Net Promoter Score of >60
Lastly, find an outsourcing partner with a High Net Promoter Score (of at least 60%). Why?
Net promoter score helps businesses gauge the quality of the customer service offered by outsourcing companies. In a way, this represents the primary way customers survey their experience because it means that their clients are happy which results in customer loyalty and retention. It also showcases how well the outsourcing partner is performing, how often they resolve issues, and if their clients are satisfied with their experience. A High Net Promoter Score results in a sense of security and peace of mind in terms of client satisfaction and quality business operations.
All these qualities and more can be found with the right outsourcing partner who can provide a customized, high quality social media management into your business solutions and promise the following:
- Operational excellence
- Build a great social media team specifically designed for your unique CX support needs
- Operational cost savings of up to 70%
- 90% customer satisfaction
- 95% response rate in social media platforms
