What’s the ONE major factor that ultimately determines your customer service capability? According to some business owners, it’s all about speed. A rapid, responsive customer service communication platform lets clients know their issues are taken care of.
Speed is important, no doubt about it. If you’re slow to respond to any inquiry about products & service (including, of course, your own customer service portal), customers will eventually seek a solution elsewhere.
But speed isn’t everything. A customer service call center needs to be fast – consistently fast. And it also needs to be reliable. If your customer call center is fast, but inaccurate and unreliable, speed soon takes a backseat to other issues within your ability to respond to client inquires.
Why is customer service so critical to overall business success? What are the major reasons why it matters? TeleDirect answers those exact questions for businesses every day.

Let’s review why customer service matters – for your business, and (more importantly) for your own clients!
Customer Service: Critical for Any Business – Including Yours!
Here are a handful of reasons why customer service is so important:
- It’s the least expensive, most effective means of customer retention. Getting customer in the first place takes a significant investment. But what happens once they buy your products or services? Here’s where retention is key – and without an effective, accurate, speedy customer service program, you’ll soon lose what you worked so hard to obtain in the first place: your customers’ trust!
- Superior customer service is the ultimate brand enhancer. Your logo is important. So are your core services & products. And they ultimately boost your brand. But if you REALLY want to solidify your total brand, focus on customer service. TeleDirect does this with a value & results approach – and we’ll do the same for your business, too!
- On-point customer service builds long-lasting, profitable relationships. How do business relationships eventually flourish? It starts and ends with customer service. In a highly competitive marketplace, customer service (including your call center) is that tissue-thin difference that allows one business to thrive – along with their customers!
- It’s the best reliability gauge. Your products and services require exceptional reliability to keep customers happy. But it can’t stop there; meet and exceed their expectations with your customer service portal, and you’ll let your customers (and your competition) know that reliability is of the utmost importance. And that’s an effective way to capture new clients, while keeping existing ones satisfied.
- Good customer service leads to great upsell opportunities. A well-run customer service program unlocks the door to previously hidden business opportunities. To get from Point A to Point B (better profits, exceptional ROI), start with a solid foundation of customer service. This means you have to take care of all the details, from appointments & reservations to regular customer communication.
- It extends the shelf-life of your products, services, and revenue stream. Less than 5% of new businesses last a full decade. The main reason for this spectacular failure rate? Focusing on everything but the customer. When too much attention goes toward your competition or general market trends, it’s easy to have customers lost in the shuffle. But without clients, any business never gets off the ground!
