It costs a business much more to acquire a new customer than it does to retain an existing one, so it makes sense that a business must do everything it can to support and satisfy existing customers. Handling complaints effectively and efficiently can result in increased customer loyalty. Today's Customer Support Specialists (CSS) and support centers have a vital role to play in ensuring customers' needs are addressed in an effective, efficient manner. In this course, you will examine the CSS's role and environment, including typical duties of the CSS in a support environment, basic tasks accomplished by the CSS, the support center and customer's role in a support environment, how the support center has evolved, and company and support center best practices.
This course prepares you for the Help Desk Institute (HDI) CSS certification, which is targeted at individuals wishing to qualify for work in a customer support center or help desk environment.
