To some, delegating business processes to other organizations sounds scary. Unfortunately, we hear it more often than we’d like to admit: people are concerned that not doing foundational business processes in-house means that they won’t be done in a quality manner, and often from those who would benefit the most from outsourcing. Usually, these are the individuals who think that overworking is a natural byproduct of a small but successful company, but that’s not true! Keeping all tasks in-house when they can be successfully outsourced is detrimental to company productivity, employee happiness, and work quality.
How many times have you heard this? “Thank you for calling Acme Inc. Please hold, the next available associate will be with you shortly.”
Maybe not so bad of a message, but when you’ve heard this on repeat (with horrible, elevator-style hold music) for the last 45 minutes, you may want to scream.
Even though everyone knows how irritating the long wait times can be when calling customer service, unfortunately it’s still necessary for numerous companies and it’s all too common of a problem.
But you can set yourself apart from the similarities, further please your customers, maintain happier employees, and ultimately increase your bottom line all with a simple switch: outsource your customer support.
