Re-thinking the in-home service experience
It’s bad enough to have a poor customer experience at the checkout or on a call, but how about inviting a poor experience into your home? Sadly, that’s the reality for many customers who receive in-home service- from repair technicians, installers and more.
Focused on their skills and qualifications, technicians in these industries are typically not trained on delivering great overall experiences. Today’s guest explores the importance of customer experience training for service technicians and why it can make a huge difference.
What kind of experiences are your technicians delivering to in-home customers? Being an expert in a certain trade does not make someone an expert in interacting with those customers. And seasoned technicians are likely to subscribe to the idea that since they’ll only be there once, it doesn’t matter.
Justin shares some great tips for training technicians to be more customer-focused, even the long-time experts who feel the old ways have served them and their customers well. Many find that learning to be more customer-focused has made their jobs easier and more rewarding.
So how can you inspire your technicians to create a better in-home service experience? Listen in!
