Customer Service is an area often neglected by managers in emerging markets like Bangladesh. Often times businesses are just happy to sell a product or service, and similarly customers are just happy, being able to buy a product. Because there’s a gap in the understanding of what customer service really is, businesses are missing out on winning back old customers and getting recommendations from existing customers. Managing your customers and keeping them satisfied means good for your business. Not only are you going to get repeat customers, you’ll also get recommendations from word of mouth. In today’s era, you need to be on top of the game when it comes to Customer Service. Despite all the CRM software and training that companies invest in, its always a boost for managers to spend time with experts who have mastered the art of Customer Service.

1. Room for Improvement, An Empty Space
In Bangladesh, there’s plenty of room for improvement in Customer Service. As a customer how many times have you lost your temper in the last one month? How many times did you go back home with a smile on your face? Despite the fact that we claim to be one of the most Hospitable Nations in the world, we seriously lack knowledge and practice when it comes to dealing with customers. The problem has to do with the fact that Bangladeshi companies have forgotten about investing in keeping customers happy, we don’t invest in CRM software to keep their records, we don’t invest in training our customer service representatives. This event is an excellent opportunity to learn the secrets of Service Mantras and how you should invest your resources to make the most out of them.
