It's not easy to always meet the expectations of your customers. Feedback not only helps you support your customers, but it can also ensure your entire team is equipped to do so. The resources within this Customer Support Toolkit will help you answer your burning questions.

How do we provide a better customer experience?

  • Did we help the customer solve their problem?

  • How can we help customers reach their outcomes without solving one-off problems?

How can I ensure that my team doesn’t burn out?

  • Which processes can we automate?
  • How do I keep everyone bought in?
  • What are ways we can avoid monotony?
  • How do we balance the needs of the business with that of the team?

Common mistakes and best practices on how to avoid them

Looking for ways to improve your programme or motivate your employees? Here are some things you can avoid:

Only ask your respondents questions you intend to respond to and improve upon.

Try not to use surveys to prove your theory, but instead to get an unbiased insight into how people are thinking.

Instead, aim for clarity and asking questions that will yield responses from people, wherever they’re located.

Want to know what customer support experts suggest? Check out these tips:

Keep surveys short and send them at the right time when you know respondents will answer, such as immediately after a transaction.

Bring visibility to the challenges your customers are facing by sharing the feedback, especially with product teams.

Define metrics for support cases and make sure you have the team aligned to deliver on them.
