Customer service support is a tough but rewarding business. You often walk the line between calming down frustrated (and sometimes angry) customers, solving issues and trying to be as efficient as possible. The hustle of a busy support center isn’t the only hurdle. Some of the other big challenges most support centers face include:
- Customer information that is missing, incomplete or difficult to access
- The need for new technology without the budget to buy it
- Imbalanced workloads among team members
- Slow response times
- High overhead and operating costs
With the right CRM, you can meet those challenges head-on. An all-in-one solution like CRMDialer delivers the tools you need to run a streamlined support center, provide optimal customer service and accomplish more in less time. It really all boils down to CRM 101.
A Platform That Organizes Key Information
To provide the best support, you need a team that can access all the right information at any given time. The last thing you want is for a customer to call in, only to reach a rep who has to pass them to someone else or scramble to find the details to handle the issue. That’s why you need a CRM that organizes everything in such a way that everyone can access it as needed. Imagine having a client call in and having their file automatically pull up on the screen, delivering important information to whoever answers the call. Benefits include:
- Unlimited contacts
- A customizable view for every user
- Bulk email validation
Scalability and Agility
Support centers of all sizes struggle with keeping up with the latest technology along with the substantial investment required to get new team members up and running. With our cloud-based software, you’ll always have access to the latest CRM technology. In fact, we’re continually innovating and revamping the roster of features we offer. Case in point: We just unveiled our new payment processing options, which allow you to take credit card, ACH or e-check payments right from the CRM.
You can also scale your software within moments to add new users without all the overhead associated with in-house hardware.
Evenly Distribute the Workload
Our platform provides several ways to make sure everyone gets a fair share of the calls coming into your support center. This helps prevent too much work from falling on the shoulders of anyone on your team. But even more importantly, it ensures that your customers all enjoy a faster response than with all queues alone.
Of course, the platform also features call queues to handle incoming calls during times when everyone’s busy. Agents can pick from the queue, or the calls get distributed evenly among the team.
Faster Response Times
There are several tools to help your support center shave valuable time off your response time. First, there’s a built-in helpdesk that lets you monitor tickets and the efficiency with which they’re handled. Then, you have a suite of communication tools, including:
- Power dialer: This power dialer CRM boasts click to call, in-browser dialing for speedy, efficient calls. It also offers whisper and barge for QA or training, voicemail drop, call waiting and call recording.
- Email: The inbound and outbound email syncs with Google and Outlook, so you can access all your emails in one place.
- SMS: Add another tool to your arsenal. Text messages are ideal for sending account information, reminders and follow-ups.
These are only a few of the ways that CRMDialer can help boost the effectiveness of your support center. Additionally, having fewer systems to log in and out of saves time, minimizes the risk of error and lets you focus more on the business at hand.
