Course overview

Do you see customer service as a necessity or an opportunity? In the past, customer-service departments were seen as cost centers. The company would try to reduce costs, leaving customer service understaffed with minimum investment. But customer service is not a cost center, and treating it like one is a mistake that can cost customers and revenue.

Customer service is more than just dealing with complaints and problems. It adds value to business, so it should be viewed as a profit center rather than a cost center. Focusing on customer service brings many benefits, such as creating a better customer experience. There are several ways you can make sure your customer service is a profit center, so you can keep loyal customers and grow revenue.
