Customer Service

Good customer service is vital for all businesses, large or small. It can have a direct impact on customer loyalty and where potential customers choose to spend their money. Happy customers buy more, they buy more often, and they tell their friends to buy, too. A happy customer, on average, tells nine people about their experience.

Simply put, the higher quality customer service you provide, the higher level of customer satisfaction you will enjoy, and that will translate into repeat business and more revenue.

Courses available:

  • HABC Level 2 Award in Customer Care – Available on demand.
  • SVQ (Levels 1 to 3) Customer Care – Available on demand.
