The most crucial aspect of providing stellar customer service involves being able to define the problem so you can prioritize the solution(s). It only takes one or two interactions with a customer service department that cannot understand what the problem is and thus cannot resolve it for a customer to lose confidence in a company’s support system. Experiencing issues with a customer service department can cause a lack of trust for the customer and result in the customer taking their business elsewhere.
