How Much did That Abandoned Call Cost Your Company?
Does your business rely on telephone calls as its revenue lifeline? Are unanswered calls causing you to lose customers and negatively impacting your bottom line?
Many businesses—such as medical offices, car dealerships, HVAC companies, and other service organizations—communicate with their customers over the telephone every day to provide customer service, book appointments, take orders, etc. But when calls from your customers go unanswered, what your customers are really hearing is “You are not important. You are not of value.” Is this really what you want your customers to hear and feel?
To put it bluntly, abandoned calls equal abandoned customers, and each abandoned call represents a missed opportunity not only to provide a customer with excellent service but to also generate additional revenue. Can your company track how many calls were NOT answered today or went to voicemail without prompt response?
