The number one rule for any business is to keep your customers happy! Every plumber or home services professional knows how important it is to deliver high-quality services. But, only part of the job is providing excellent services; the other key to keeping your customers happy is outstanding customer support. Timely response to customer inquiries, availability during emergencies, and ease of appointment setting can create a competitive advantage for your business. If growth is a goal, then you must support your customers and acknowledge or resolve any complaints or issues.
Reports say that more than 80% of callers sent to voicemail don’t leave messages because they don’t think they will be heard! Make an excellent first impression; never send a customer to voicemail again. Utilize automated solutions (greeting, phone tree, etc.) with customized protocols to support your customers until they have a resolution. What do you do if you can’t build the technology you need or afford to hire full-time staff to answer your phones and support your customers? Cue the experienced live-agent contact center.
Here are our top 4 benefits of partnering with a contact center to support and grow your plumbing business:
24x7x365 answering service
Plumbing problems arise at any hour of the day; so, it is possible to receive customer calls even after work hours. Don’t miss out on opportunities or leave your customers in need and without your support. Hire a plumbing contact center that works 24x7x365. When you are ready to serve your customers on-demand, regardless of time, they will trust you more. Also, a satisfied customer base always recommends and refers your business to their friends, families, and coworkers.
Experienced teams at plumbing contact centers follow pre-designed protocols for handling emergencies and always have accountability for correct message delivery. The feature-rich robust response systems used to operate the phone lines collects essential information from customers regarding the job site, issues, etc. Then, the messages are delivered directly to your team via email, phone, online portal, and or SMS. Also remember, service providers can handle payments online to avoid non-payment issues during emergency plumbing calls.
Appointment & On-Call scheduling
Never miss an appointment. Professional contact teams use the scheduling software of your company to modify, create, and cancel appointments. Even if you have not set up a web-based on-call calendar, contact center teams can help you create a program. Never miss appointments and always direct your callers to the correct technicians. Update all data in real-time so that your staff can access details instantly.
Contact centers are available virtually and remotely. Experienced service providers tailor calling plans to the specific requirements of your business. If you need to connect your ERM, CRM, or ERP, so that records update in real-time, an experienced contact center is your best partner for the job.
