What is Customer Service and it can affect your Company?

What is Customer Service and it can affect your Company?Many companies today are Customer based. Call centres, sales, help and advice, libraries, restaurants, banks, supermarkets, consultancy, market traders, social security offices, transport systems all have a customer in mind and therefore require customer service. Even inter-company departments should treat each other as customers on a daily basis. Interactions should be focused on how others perceive the group and the company at large.

Customer service evolves!

Weak customer service can put a company in a poor position, destroying its client base, reputation, and profits. In a dynamic working environment businesses need to ensure patron services is constantly tweaked to reach its full potential while creating additional company business. What worked one year ago may not be applicable today?

Customer service a perfect filtration device

Customer service is a filter, a conduit between the end-user or the customer and the company that has manufactured the item or provided the service. It is a focal point for all communication. Client service will answer and assist people with problems, queries, and resolving difficulties while ensuring that the customer is happy. The staff associated with service roles are front-facing, a direct link between the back business and the consumer. Interactions should always be positive and informative giving help a full resolution to the punter’s satisfaction.

What poor customer service smells like!

Experiences of poor shopper service make people unhappy, angry, and fearful of the company. This generates bad publicity as the disgruntled purchaser begins to talk amongst their friends and family about their experiences. Exemplary customer service generates a positive experience with beneficial publicity. Many businesses rely on the spoken word of a shopper to promote and pass on their publicity.

Negative customer service is not efficient from a monetary position. As the levels of complaints combined with anger rise, so the company must divert energy into resolving and answering high level complaints rather than diverting resources to service or product improvement. Consumer service staff should always be highly trained and motivated to give the customer the best experience.
It is a service based industry and manufacturing is often relocated to more opportunistic locations often outside the customers own country. Customer service is determining and exceeding a customer’s expectation. To promote the company results in the potential not only to retain the consumer’s custom but to generate future sales. It’s a fundamental law of business that a happy customer will continue to shop.

A happy customer is a valued customer

Customer service is ensuring the customers are getting the most benefit from the company they have purchased from or whose services they are using. It has to be of high standard as it is often the first experience an end-user will have with a company. Customer service should be modern, forward-thinking and pro-active. Everybody likes to be treated well and made to feel special. To accomplish this feeling, buyer service employees must appreciate the value of the punter and honor the company simultaneously.

Tips for Remembering Peoples Names for the first Time

In any business or social setting, remembering a person’s name becomes paramount to your development and acceptance within a group. It's also a great way to Win Friends & Influence People. It’s both polite and reflective of overall intelligence. Often however, with the sheer excitement and influx of sensory data, it can be a confusing social event. Yet there are many ways you can both excel and remember a person’s name. Just by following these simple and yet common sense approaches, you will increase your social confidence.

Our minds work primarily on a pictorial level. Trying to remember pure data is hard however if you create a picture you will have better success. For example you meet a person named Mr. Adam Fish, he tells you he likes to swim, and he’s also wearing a yellow tie. Now instead of trying to remember his name, see his face and any details you can gather and project the pictorial thought of “Mr Fish likes to swim with yellow Adams”. It may seem surreal but your mind has created a visual image of this person. Now the next time you look at him you can imagine that Mr Fish likes to swim with yellow Adams. His name’s Mr Adam Fish.

In essence you’re creating a mini-mnemonic, in association with a visual image.

Names and words without images are more likely to be forgotten then those with visual and cerebral stimuli. But remember too, that you should always avoid a “pet” word. If you hear a colleague or associate refer to someone in a pet sense, you should ignore this word and never try to emulate it. This pet word has been connected via an affinity you are not a part of. Instead rely on your own visual and mnemonic reference.

The association you need to remember is face, name, features, and an odd story you can associate with the person you are trying to remember. So you meet Mr Felix from Arizona who collects model storks, he also has an extensive nose. So remember him as “A big nose stork from Arizona likes his friend Felix”. 

Only one word’s possibly a surname here, and by associating visual stimuli to the person you will not only recognize and remember his name, but you will have amazing opportunities to re-introduce yourself at a later stage.

By remembering a person’s personal interests you will please your guest. Many people talk but very few of us talk properly. Even fewer of us listen with full attention. So once you show you listened in the past you will become stronger, in a better position to impress your new associate.

Remembering a person’s name at the first meeting becomes easier. Just relax and rely on your ability to create a visual stimulus with the associated person. Over time you will of course get to know more about their interests, but at important business meetings and social gatherings, you need to recall many names at short notice. It will separate you from the other people who have forgotten and who rely on pure data.

Top excuses for not organizing

We all know becoming better organized remains a key to victory in terms of organizing our personal life combined with our possessions i.e. you need to Tidy the Japanese Way! However common excuses offer a simple way of negating the effort required to create a sense of effective organization. The top excuses encountered range from modified mental as well as emotional excuses. Combine the inability to visualize goals with a defeatist attitude, and you’ll start to recognize these excuses sound all too common. Learning the top excuses allows you to create a valuable proactive defense, ensuring you complete your organization attempts every time.

• Failure to see goals

Not seeing the organizational goals or how they will become accomplished leads to a lack of imagination that disallows organization to occur. The mind fails to see positively the results of organizing so a lazy complacency sets into the conscious mind. It’s important to see the end result.

• The attitude “Somebody else remains better at organising than me”

This attitude exists as a referral system that takes responsibility and passes it onto somebody else. Referral remains a chief excuse for becoming redundant about organizing. In essence it’s easier to make someone appear better in your own eyes, if it involves you doing less work.

• Getting organized is hard work

Getting organized will only mean another mess later on once the organizational sparkle wears off. A natural entropic state gets created through the physical act of organization. The mind creates many barriers yet the physical process remains extremely easy to complete. Keeping organized does require maintenance, to avoid the entropy creeping in a preferred direction of disorganization.

• To live in disorganised state reflects an inner creative spirit

This prime example of not becoming organised reflects a person’s ability to define their existence as artistic in nature. Living in a disorganised mess allows the excuse of creativity to interfere with efficiency or organisation. Challenging this misconception remains difficult as the core perception here involves changing a personal belief.

• Emotional as well as mental states

Stating illness, depression, anxiety, and vocal frustrations connected with wasted money may seem to offer ideal top excuses for not becoming organised. However these emotional mental states effectively creating mind barriers to the start of the organising process. Organisation requires effort. Break the mind barriers to start reorganisation simply through the act of starting. The thoughts drag out the negativity into physical complacency.

Once you recognise the top excuses for remaining inactive, whether in yourself or other people, you can begin to negate the justification for doing nothing.  Becoming better organised results in a more efficient lifestyle. Creating a streamlined mode of living helps achieve a greater positive experience.  Superior organisation equals supplementary time for social, as well as leisure events. Less time’s wasted in your daily life searching for lost items. Every place has a unique easily identifiable home, providing you avoid the top excuses for not organising yourself, as well as listening to those around you.

The Benefits of Value Added Tax Vat as a Business System

The Benefits of Value Added Tax Vat as a Business SystemA taxation system has many apparent benefits, yet it requires a deeper look at understanding how a positive benefit can manifest itself. VAT (Value Added Tax) currently sits at 20% in the United Kingdom. A tax net such as VAT encompasses the consumer, business, as well as service based industries, so how can these distinct separate entities benefit from a single VAT system?

VAT’s predominantly leveled at retailer level. It’s relevant to all who purchase an item, product, service etc. so it’s impossible to avoid contributing to this tax level. Instead of targeting a specific group or sector at random, VAT has in fact equal coverage. It’s in essence a generic capture-all tax system bringing all transactions into a taxable sphere. Furthermore it’s a consumption based tax so a government can recuperate money as people consume greater products, often stabilizing national debt while increasing GDP (Gross Domestic Product).

VAT as a strategy
Furthermore VAT also acts as a stabilizer preventing run-away pricing strategies. As each seller attempts to increase price, the VAT stays the same for all parties. With this additional add-on cost, VAT deters unnecessary price increases as a healthy competitor can see a room to reduce the price. This benefits the consumer tremendously.

Retailer and buyer have a common interest in increasing the undercharging factor of the actual item versus the already known VAT amount. This helps drive prices of products down as both parties already understand an additional 20% needs adding to the sale price.

Fraud passes on VAT Debt
Avoiding VAT through fraud or a scam’s stopped quickly as it’s then applied at the next transaction level, therefore reducing tax avoidance escalating. Of course initial taxation remains lost to the government in the first instance, however the ability to recuperate VAT at the next transaction level stops the avoidance spreading.

VAT allows cross-auditing to occur as each company can deduct the VAT from its business-to-business sale price through reclaiming the VAT back. Only the buyer or consumer ends this cross-audit check, as they remain unable to recuperate the VAT unless they’re VAT registered.

The HMRC as enforcer
Select groupings, products, or business entities will all have taxation simultaneously, or at separate instances. The VAT system allows for the creation of a tax group, releasing confusion from a capital based taxation, to a consumption based system. Co-ordination between business and collection agencies such as HMRC helps to reduce fraud. VAT’s reclaimable so there remains little necessity or urgency in avoiding payment.
VAT remains predominantly UK or Europe central, which allows other non-VAT countries to seek a refund. VAT reclaims remain a very lucrative aspect of international business. Driving costs of actual purchasing lower per item than traditional non-VAT markets may allow.

Many benefits exist to the VAT system, from international trade, to the consumer, to assisting in government tax collection, even establishing anti-fraud strategies. VAT tax as a further benefit, can always face reduction from a government to help alleviate fiscal pressure from a certain subgroup. Taxes may always exist as a certainty, and so hopefully will the benefits too.
