Parature, a global leader in on-demand customer service software, announced today that it will sponsor a free webinar, in partnership with Supportindustry.com, offering customer service and support professionals the opportunity to gain invaluable knowledge through an interactive demonstration of how to manage real life challenging customer scenarios. The webinar entitled “Getting Your Worst Customers to Love You: True Tales from the Front Lines of Customer Support” will be held on Wednesday, February 24, 2010 at 2:00pm EST. To register for the webinar, please visit http://www.parature.com/webinars.
Customer service and support teams are often good at handling routine customer transactions, but when difficult scenarios are presented – threatening language, lawsuits or firings, frustration that has led to damaged goods or products – support representatives may find they are unable to effectively temper these situations. They proceed down a path of negativity, the situation worsens and a potentially loyal customer is lost. This is a scenario that can be avoided if support teams learn how to handle these critical, moment-of-truth situations faced by every customer service operation.
"Getting Your Worst Customers to Love You: True Tales from the Front Lines of Customer Support" will be an interactive webinar, teaming communications skills expert and bestselling author Rich Gallagher with Parature’s Vice President of Marketing Gary McNeil, to demonstrate how to handle worst-case customer scenarios. The discussion format will cover numerous real life situations that were reported in a recent survey sponsored by Supportindustry.com and Parature, challenging experiences that are being submitted on the Parature Blog, as well as the best practices and technology behind managing these interactions, and how an organization’s ‘worst’ customers can oftentimes become their best supporters when problematic situations are handled appropriately and with confidence.
Parature’s “Best Practices in Customer Service” webinar series is designed to serve as an educational and informational resource for organizations throughout numerous industry sectors to gain insight into customer service best practices and to improve the customer experience.
