More people are using technology than ever before. Millions of people are spending almost half of their day interacting with some form of technology. However, as more people use more types of technology, the need for support is constantly growing too. And with people wanting help but not wanting to wait in a line at a store to get it, remote IT support is becoming much more important.
That is why it is incredibly beneficial to offer remote customer service and troubleshooting services to not only make some extra money for your company, but also to give the customers easier access to the solutions and help they desire. This article is going to take a closer look at 5 tips when getting started with remote troubleshooting and customer care at your company.
Have a Plan and a Strategy
Before you decide to implement any sort of remote customer care of troubleshooting service, you need to have a plan and/or strategy. You need to know what sorts of specific services you will offer, how much you will charge for the services and how you plan on monetizing your existing clients with this new offering.
Without a plan, you might run into some problems or roadblocks that you didn’t anticipate. The more time you put into the plan, the better the chances that your implementation goes off without a hitch.
Select the Right Tools and Software
Once you have your implementation plan ready to go, you can begin to start getting ready to offer the services. The first thing to do is figure out what tools and software you will use. You need a special sort of software to provide remote services to clients, and there are a lot of offerings out there so be sure to do research and read more on the internet to see which is right for you.
There are plenty of reviews online to check out, and many will offer a free trial so you can see which ones you prefer working with. When you are just starting out, we recommend something very affordable to get your feet wet and make sure that these services are something you really do want to offer.
Be Sure to Keep Your Team on the Same Page
When your company begins to offer remote services, you will need a dedicated team who is ready to provide these services. The size of your team will depend on how many customers you have and how popular you expect these remote services to be for your customers. One of the most important things to consider is to make sure that the whole team is on the same page.
They not only need to be offering similar levels of customer service, but also need to be able to help out people in a similar fashion, and in a way that reflects well on your company. If one member of the team is much slower than others or isn’t as friendly, you will want to get them on the same page. The team needs to be united, and all need to offer a good experience to clients.
When Troubleshooting, Start With the Client
When it comes to the actual remote troubleshooting services you offer, you want to ensure they are standardized and that everyone is on the same page. When someone reports a network problem, you should begin by first looking at the client, and not the server. The entire process can be much easier this way and it can help you find the problem quicker than if you jump right to the server.
Of course, if your team has a different way of doing things or you have your own feelings, by all means go with those, but it makes logical sense to start with the client’s machine if they report an issue, and if it’s not their machine, then go to the server.
Give Customers a Way to Provide Feedback
No matter how great your remote services are, there is always room for improvement and you should be open to comments and feedback from your customers. This also gives customers a chance to have their voice heard and feel that they are being listened to.
Especially in the early days of your implementation, providing a way for customers to give feedback can be instrumental in fine tuning your offerings and services. Whether it is a survey at the end of a call or a specific contact form, giving customers an outlet to provide feedback is always a good idea.
