Customer Service is Now Customer Care

Posted on April 15, 2020 at 1:30 AM

This article explains how customer service has changed into

customer care. The successful restaurants always knew this.



As I waited for an answer to my VCR inquiry from a stereo company, the recording stated a “customer care” representative would be available shortly. At that moment, I realized it’s finally catching on everywhere. With aging baby boomers, world events and additional pressures in today’s society; it is “customer care” that has evolved in our economy. We have moved from a manufacturing economy to a service economy and are currently leaning towards a “servicecare” economy. As we live in a high tech-high button touch environment, many personal contacts have been decreased making each customer interaction more important than ever to corporate imagery. For example, if you call for computer tech support, the representative often makes it a point to address you by first name. If it’s the bank credit card company, they may ask “How are you doing today?” This makes the customer feel less like a number and more like a human being.


The successful restauranteurs always took service one step further towards “care” because they understood restaurant customer service literally involves the immediate health of the patron-- more so than any other industry (except for healthcare industry itself). A recent survey asked diners why they went out to eat and the main response was “to feel good.” (After all, the word “restaurant” has French origins meaning “to restore”;). As a waiter for many years, I felt my job was to restore humanity, especially to diners arriving from a stressed out day.


In my past dining room work experiences, I remember certain actions lifting service to this higher level of “care.” One time a customer requested margarine that wasn’t available in the restaurant. The owner walked across the street to the grocery purchased the margarine and brought it tableside. The patron was delighted. There was a regular customer (diabetic) who always got immediate attention with some kind of bread or crackers to keep from feeling feint before her food arrived. If there was a baby present at a table, our staff ensured their food would come out as soon as possible to pacify. These kinds of actions create a lasting positive image for any company or establishment. The owner cared about his guests and it permeated thru the dining room and staff -- even after he left to open other restaurants for the company.



Customer Service involves major 3 points:


1) Care and Concern for the Customer

2) Spontaneity and Flexibility of frontline workers which enhances the ability for on-the-spot problem-solving.

3) Recovery- making things right with the customer when the process has gone astray.


These 3 points should always be highlighted in any customer service training program. If they are kept in mind, then quality service will occur.

Needed to put you the bit of observation to say thank you over again over the remarkable advice you've discussed at this time. It's pretty open-handed with people like you to supply publicly just what many of us might have made available as an e book to help make some money on their own, notably given that you might have done it if you desired. Those techniques as well served like a fantastic way to be certain that someone else have a similar interest really like my own to know the truth much more when considering this problem. I know there are some more enjoyable periods in the future for many who scan your site.

I want to express my thanks to this writer for bailing me out of this particular instance. Right after exploring through the search engines and seeing thoughts which were not powerful, I assumed my entire life was over. Living without the answers to the difficulties you've sorted out all through your entire report is a serious case, as well as the ones that would have adversely damaged my career if I hadn't discovered your web blog. Your own talents and kindness in touching a lot of stuff was very helpful. I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't discovered such a thing like this. I'm able to now look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this high quality and results-oriented help. I will not think twice to refer the website to anyone who wants and needs care about this issue.

I have to show appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of this type of challenge. Right after researching through the world-wide-web and finding thoughts which were not helpful, I figured my life was over. Existing without the presence of solutions to the problems you've solved as a result of your main short post is a critical case, and the kind that might have badly damaged my entire career if I had not encountered your web page. The skills and kindness in handling all the stuff was very helpful. I'm not sure what I would've done if I hadn't come across such a point like this. It's possible to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for this professional and results-oriented help.
