Detailed Course Description

With so much competition in today’s global economy, providing exceptional customer service is no longer an added benefit, it is a necessity. Customers who are not satisfied with the way they are treated can easily take their business elsewhere. They can also communicate to a massive number of other buyers on social media platforms, thereby making customer service a critical role in almost every organization, large or small.

Why is this online course important? The answer is simple: providing great customer service costs much less, in dollars and sense, than providing poor service. It costs more to gain new customers than it does to maintain existing ones. Customers will be more loyal to an organization when they are treated well. Simply put, a satisfied customer is more likely to maintain an ongoing business relationship than a dissatisfied customer. 

This course will cover all the topics surrounding customer service and how to provide exceptional service that will build the bond that keeps customers coming back time and time again. Customers may first come into your organization because of your product or service, but they will decide to come again based on how well your customer service professionals treat them. An entire organization will benefit from this course. Employees will develop a sense of cooperation, caring, teamwork, and cohesiveness. The organization will see improved morale, loyalty, and commitment to your customers and to the organization.
