It's 2021 and websites are supporting an increasingly large amount of the sales process for brands. When a customer or prospect uses the phone to contact your business, they are looking for answers that they couldn't find online. And whoever answers the phone for your business might be the first and only point of human contact that they have with your company.
Rarely are we ever prepared for natural disasters. Their devastation is product of their unpredictability. Should we have more advanced notice before a disaster strikes, perhaps we’d all be better equipped to face its impending realities.

We've all had it happen to us, a customer or patient who is a no-show. Chances are that this unfortunate occurrence is a result of your customer's hectic schedule or quite possible it just slipped their mind.

Recently Ambs Call Center implemented a quarterly customer survey that is sent via email which provides us with a service quality ranking known as ‘Net Promoter Score’. We learned of this measurement tool at a recent strategic planning session with Verne Harnish, author of ‘Mastering the Rockefeller Habits’, a book that I highly recommend. There are only two questions on the survey which helps with the response rate.
