If you fail to satisfy the demands of your target market, you won t be able to rise above the competition and create a brand that people would trust.
To learn more about why customer service matters and what your call center must do to fulfill consumers expectations, keep in mind the following statistics. (Hint: These would surely come in handy for 2016!)
