You may believe that telephone customer service is no longer that important, however a recent survey tells otherwise. It was revealed that despite the rise in social media such as Twitter and Facebook, telephone contact is still the favourite method for consumers to get in touch with a business with 65% of respondents preferring to communicate with a company by phone.

Automated Services

Businesses may use automated answering services as one way to deal with callers who prefer to communicate over the phone, but research has shown that automated phone and voice response services give the biggest headache of all in terms of customer service perception.
