Service Means Communicating With Your Customers

Many Customer Service nightmares arise out of poor communication. Customers are at the brunt end of a situation that they can’t control. They are frustrated, powerless, and in the dark. Companies often respond by trying to hide, ignore or even deceive the customers when there’s been an interruption in the service delivery system.
