Customer Support Requires Good Balance: Toeing the Line Between Automation and Mechanization

A free white paper by PhaseWare Inc.

Learn how to strike the balance between automation and personal interaction by properly leveraging support software to manage the mundane, and give your employees the freedom necessary to delight you customers. Since customer support is such an integral part of customer satisfaction, it is imperative that a firm be able to assist its customers in an efficiently empathetic manner. Sometimes, this can only be done through personal interaction. Automation is an effective tool that can help firms delegate less important support tasks to software programs; freeing up employees so that they can handle one-on-one customer interactions. There is, however, a risk with automation. Crossing the fine line from just enough automation to full-blown mechanization can have a deleterious effect on a firm. Customers want to have a relationship with your company and your brand; not with a computer system.
