Multichannel customer support is the only feasible option for your company. The current market demands that you enable your customers to approach customer support from a myriad of angles; you’ll need to allow customers to access your agents through a phone call, e-mail, web-based live chat, and even from the mobile app. The key to providing good customer service, though, is not just covering all your bases — it’s mastering them.
The multichannel customer support system you offer needs to have a solid support system itself in order to function properly. Building that support system starts with the training of your team. Thorough training is absolutely essential, and it may also be beneficial to you and your company to consider cross-training your employees. This approach is especially effective if you have a smaller business, as cross-trained employees are able to fulfill multiple roles without sacrificing their expertise. This also has the benefit of allowing your agents to change their position when it becomes too tedious or individuals need a scene change to cleanse their palate and keep their inspiration and motivation for the job. Cross-training, when properly applied, can be one of the better choices you make for your employees and your customers alike.
