Customer support: The new competitive difference
Businesses often look to competitive pricing and promotions to retain customers, but excellent customer support can be just as effective.
The lack of stability in today’s worldwide economy, in addition to heightened levels of competition, shorter product lifecycles, and decreasing margins, has forced high technology companies to act quickly in protecting their customer base. The retention of customers is often achieved through competitive pricing and special offers. Society, however, is now recognizing that the provision of excellent customer service proves to be a much stronger incentive.
Competitive differentiation is often identified through the level of support and services provided as opposed to the actual product itself. With today’s economic uncertainty, customer retention has proven to be more important than ever. Through the formation of strong relationships, overall customer loyalty is certain to increase at an organization.
This knowledge is especially relevant to the high technology industry. Further to having a sophisticated GPS fleet management solution, it is important to ensure that the telematics provider you choose to work with offers convenient and high quality technical support. Businesses require an easily accessible method for obtaining help and answers to their most pressing questions at any given time. Geotab provides 24/7 technical support as well as the opportunity to engage in self-serve support.
