Why Does Customer Service Matter for Research Teams?

We’ve compiled some key customer service statistics which highlight some of the expectations customers have, consider the following:

  • Astonishingly, 90% of customers deem an ‘immediate’ response as essential or highly significant when they have a customer service query. Even more startling, 60% of customers define ‘immediate’ as 10 minutes or less!
  • More than 75% of people say getting inconsistent answers from customer support is a major frustration.
  • 35% of consumers find it very important to have a fully self-serve customer service option available to resolve their issues.
  • Figures show over 85% of customers expect conversations with customer service representatives should move with ease and in real-time across different channels.
  • 90% of customers believe the way in which their data is handled is indicative of how they are treated as customers, and they have a high regard for privacy (and security). Unsurprisingly, they won’t interact with businesses they don’t trust with their data.
  • Research shows that 54% of customers expect a positive customer service interaction, with friendly agents.

These expectations from customers apply across the board, from ordering groceries online, booking travel and even requests to your research team. Keeping customer service at the top of your list is essential to delivering the best service possible. It’s important to take time to assess how your research team is meeting the expectations of your customers. Are you meeting them? How can you track, measure, analyze, and improve key metrics related to customer service in order to ensure the highest quality of service? By continuously evaluating and improving your customer service processes, you will be better equipped to meet customer expectations and keep them satisfied.
