In a world that’s being changed rapidly by technology, it only makes sense that the same is happening with customer experiences. As we progress forward with new, innovative developments from telephones to computers to the internet to social media, the insurance industry has adapted, too. Today’s customer experience is giving customers more power. They get to control how, when, and where they interact with service representatives.
Why Good Customer Service Is Vital To Agency Stability
73% of business leaders report that there is a direct link between their customer service and overall business performance. In addition, 64% of business leaders say that customer service has a positive impact on their growth.
Customers want a personalized experience. When someone reaches out to your team, they want to be treated like a person, not a number. They want to feel like their issue is important and that your agent cares deeply about solving their issue. It shouldn’t feel like your team is applying a one-size-fits-all approach to every customer interaction. Since every support case is a little different, each one should be treated as such.
