Your call is important to us, please stay on the line while we transfer you.

“Your call is important to us. Please stay on the line while we transfer you.”

This is considered to be the most annoying customer service phrase. More so if they happen to hear it after an extended hold time.

This does not happen only on the phone or IVR channels. It happens across channels – this is a classic case of an organization starting a service channel and does not bother to staff them well or equip the staff with the necessary technology infrastructure.

This kind of experience would result in increased customer churn. How do you prevent it?

Listen to the panelists discuss how you can prevent yourself from providing such bad customer experiences. This panel will discuss the following topics:

  • How do you reduce the hold times of customers who try to reach you irrespective of the channel they contact you?
  • How do you bridge the expectation–experience gaps of your customers?
  • Given the depth and breadth of customer queries, how do you adhere to your committed SLAs?
  • How do you ensure a positive customer experience at every touchpoint?
  • Live case studies and real-life examples of getting the customer experience right.
