It’s hard to imagine any modern business operating without live support software on their website. Chat software has the advantage of providing instant gratification to the customers as it facilitates a real-time dialogue between the company and themselves so as to arrive at a solution quickly. But, it is a synchronous type of communication channel; meaning that it works only when both the customer and the chat agent are available together. This poses a limitation because if the visitor has a question but there is no agent available to answer, there is friction between the expectations and the reality. Your […]
Walmart Flexes Its Muscle Against Amazon Walmart may be bruised by Amazon, but it’s learning how to fight back.
One of my students today actually called my phone going absolutely nuts because he had a dispute from one of his long-term students. Instead of canceling their membership the proper way, a day after their last charge was made they disputed the charge telling their bank that they had canceled it. So, of course, the bank just gave them their money back and debited his account for the money. He went nuts because of this because he barely had any additional money in there at the time. He couldn’t understand why his merchant would take his money before the dispute […]
Great Example of what not to do while serving customers!

Today’s New York News: The M.T.A.’s New Approach to Customer Service Wednesday: Meet the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s new station managers, and Climate Week NYC.
Last week we meet two other couples, all long-time friends, for dinner at a local restaurant. We chatted, looked over the menu and placed our orders; none of us ordered an appetizer. We had plenty to talk about, as we had not seen each other for some time – news about families, vacations, and a little catching up on other friends (OK, it was gossip) who were not there. Then one of us remarked that it seemed like we were waiting a long time for our meals and we were starting to get hungry. A couple moments later, the server […]
