Mastering live chat in customer care
Engaging, practical training to help your teams master live chat as an effective, human-centred customer support tool.
Live chat is one of the toughest customer services jobs. Your team members need to combine top-class phone skills with technical knowledge and the ability to write quickly and clearly.
Technical support staff in particular need to understand that a customer’s perspective, knowledge and way of interacting is very different from theirs.
That’s why our live chat course helps customer support and tech teams understand the way customers work and think first. Our course gets your team up to speed on effective written skills as well as showing them how to manage customer service, complaint and technical issues through live chat. Your team will learn foundational skills they can use in other areas too.
