The importance of customer service certainly cannot be underestimated, particularly in modern times. Gone are the days that customers were merely satisfied paying for a good product; the modern consumer is interested in the whole package the company provide – a large ingredient of which is good levels of customer service. Building a strong brand image is crucial to a company in order to encourage repeat custom and encourage customers to share their experience with their friends, relatives and peers.Word-of-mouth is surely the most trusted source of information when a consumer makes their decision about the company that is right for them as it is information that has usually come directly from someone they know and trust who has had first-hand experience with the company. The main factor that will put off a potential new customer from spending their hard earned money with an untried company is the fear that they will provide a poor service and will let them down. Some consumers may be willing to take the gamble but most will choose not to without some form of assurances and in today’s age this will often come in the form of a review website. They may not know the person providing the review but they can rest assured that for the most part they will be impartial and a company with a strong level of positive customer feedback can convince the modern day shopper to put his faith in the company.

Customer service is the provision of care to customers from pre-service to after sales service. It may be face-to-face, over the telephone, written or via new technology using e-mail and the Internet. Companies use customer care to create an overall impression of an organization that puts the needs of the customer first, to ensure quality and increase sales over competitors. Increasingly, businesses have customer services departments or customer services desks whose job is to ensure the efficient process of delivering customer care, including provision for those customers with special needs. Good customer service skills are critical in any organization because a company cannot succeed in the market by just having an excellent product. You have to combine product with service to beat the market, and to meet customer expectations.
