Call Center or Patience-Simulation?

Well — I’ve been thinking about writing something about call centers for quite some time now. But then having so many friends in the industry, I thought I may hurt them…

But then — being “me” … I have to get it off my head, and so, I decided to do it in the most polite way possible. Let’s see what we have in store:

____

  • Call-Center: “All our representatives are busy at the moment”…

____

  • Call-Center: “This call may be recorded for quality purposes.”

____

  • Call-Center: “Your call is important to us, a representative will be with you shortly.”

____

  • Call-Center: “Press '1' for cards, '2' for accounts, '3' for digital something, '4' for card blocking, '5' for telling us that you are getting extremely p!$$#@ 0%% or press '0' to talk to our customer service representative…

____

Yes High-Tech is important, but if this high-tech is taking away human-touch and empathy and perspective… I don’t think so it’s going to help much.

Now, just "share it" if you liked it…
