Contact Center Excellence
For any business customer retention is essential. The American Management Association estimates that repeat customers generate 65% of an average company's business and it is well known that it costs several times more to attract a new customer than it does to retain an old one. Big revenue companies have long ago shifted from "meet customer's expectations" to "exceed customer's expectations". With the possibility the Internet offers, customers who were badly serviced, easily share their experience with the whole community via blogging, forums and even videos. This is creating bad image to the company and prospective customers will run to the competition. It is no longer accepted that a customer cannot get through to an agent quickly or not receive answers to his questions. Thus, all activities of a contact center MUST be focused on providing excellent customer service.
Key features of Customer Service Excellence:
• better and faster service delivery
• increase customer satisfaction
• gain repeat business
• increase credibility and loyalty with customers
• better manage stressful situations

Although recognized as one of the top Telemarketing Sales Trainers in the World, Stan Billue is the first to admit that he is rather slow on adapting to new technologies. Stan stated; “I was probably one of the last professional Speakers to add a Fax Machine, a Computer and then a Cell Phone. I also drug my feet at converting my Audio Series from Cassettes to CDs a few years ago.”
