Customer service can be a challenge in today's digital age. Some things do not change regarding customer expectations. The first is time. How much TIME does it take for the customer to be served? Cost is another factor. It is easier nowadays to search on the internet and find out who is offering the best value for money. Lastly QUALITY. What is the quality of service the customer is going to receive as well as the quality of the products and services that the business / organisation has to offer? Very key things to think about.
