Is there a connection between the experience of communication with the call center of clients and their satisfaction and loyalty? If so, can a company increase customer loyalty with additional investments in customer retention tools?

If these questions worry you, there is a positive answer.

The study was conducted to analyze whether the loyalty and satisfaction of customers who have experience with the call center, the company or the goods and services. On the question of satisfaction and loyalty to the company, customers who already had experience in communicating with her call center were interviewed.

The result clearly showed that as customer satisfaction with a call center grows, so does their desire to make another purchase and recommend this brand to their friends increases proportionally. In addition to this, it should be noted that the likelihood of a client leaving another seller decreases.

The study found that an effective customer retention strategy is key to increasing customer loyalty and satisfaction. It follows that call center managers and marketers should pay close attention to improving the functionality of the call center and use various methods of customer retention.

Companies choosing a call center for outsourcing should be more demanding in their choice, as this directly affects customer retention.

Choosing a contact center for outsourcing or acquiring it, make sure that you take into account the following points:

  • Do not save on call center quality:

Having saved a few dollars on quality, you risk your brand, which will directly affect your reputation and sales.

  • Pay due attention to operator training:

Impeccable knowledge of the products, sincere empathy with each communication with the client, all this comes with experience, but at the same time can be achieved in a fairly short time with the help of quality training. Provide the best training to your employees and they will look like experienced professionals in the eyes of your customers.

  • Minimize operator response timeout:

Nothing annoys the client more than waiting for an answer from a call center operator. Never make a client wait for an answer for more than a few minutes, unless in exceptional cases, give him the opportunity to pose his question as soon as possible.

  • Take adequate corrective action:

In case the client wants to speak with the supervisor, ensure that the problem is resolved in the best possible way.

  • Be nice to the call center staff:

The staff of your call center is the point of contact of your company with the outside world, so the client should feel the friendly moral atmosphere of your company in solving its problems. Operators play a vital role in the success of your contact center, therefore it is important to treat them well and this will positively affect the results of their work.

If the client is satisfied with the work of your call center, he will definitely come back to you and maintain loyalty to your company.
