Steps to Be a Good Tech Support Agency

By Mark Bennett Subscribe to RSS | March 28th 2012 | Views:

A common mistake what everyone makes is assuming that help desk and tech support service are the same. Many people use these terms often without knowing the basic difference between them. They are considered as an interchangeable terms. This is bad, and if you are a business owner; you would probably know the vast difference between these two services.

Although both of them refer to call center service especially for technology-based products, but in terms of the way how it is referred there is a huge difference. Help desk refers to a service where customers or clients call for help. Just like how the name suggests, they can call to ask non technical related questions and doubts. Some people call to inquire about certain products or services, while others call to complain about the lousy performance or features of products.

In tech support service calls, it is only technically questions that agents answer. You don't inquire about certain products or complain about them. So, it is a kind of technical related service where the agent may assist you in resolving certain problems that you might be experiencing with a new phone, computer, etc.

Nowadays, many of the business organizations are struggling to have a definite parameter set for being a good customer service provider. This parameter could lay some rules on how to handle customers and increase sales. Below are some of them that you might find useful

Two Way Solutions

If you ever check or come across a tech support problem, you are bound to find out that there are two possible solutions for it. The first solution is the immediate solution that allows you to solve the problem. But if you think harder, you will find out that there is always a deeper solution to prevent this problem from happening again. That is creating a software or setup program to make sure that such problem doesn't come again or never appears.

Try not to think Customer is Stupid

You have heard innumerable stories about how customer complains that his or her keyboard is not working and the solution to the problem is that the keyboard was unplugged. Okay, it is a known fact that there are some customers who are not that witty and if you ask a customer whether the keyboard is plugged or not, they would get offended. Seriously, the customer may react or even question you on why you think he or she is an idiot.

An easy way to handle or avoid this negative comment from the customer is to suggest the customer that sometimes dust could have entered the connection plug and because of that the keyboard is not working. So tell the customer to unplug the wire and blow into the connection plug and then connect it. By this way the customer may not get offended.

Fix the customer problem

See an easy way to have a huge fan or you could say a good number of customers is to know what problem the customer has and fix it. Customer will be more satisfied if you solve the problem even if it is on the part of the customer. Seriously, when a customer commits a mistake or screws up while doing something and you end up solving it, it will make them more loyal and happy with your service. I know many of us have customers who fume and burst out loud while calling to complain. But in this case, you can create a good devoted customer who will prattle on and on about the great job that you have done.

Avoid Money and Try For Happy Customer

This may sound awkward for you, but if you want to be a successful business you need to let go of your aim to have a huge profit. The greediness to earn more and more money will not give you good customers. When you want to be famous and successful, you need customers who are happy with your service and will brag about your service and products to everyone.

So to be a good tech support service agency, you need to know how to handle customer’s grievances and make them satisfied. It is not a complicated procedure and you don’t need to break your head to solve the problems.
