So what is the solution?
Two way radios have been proven as an effective option for increasing customer service abilities. Let’s take a look at how it can drive your business forward.
Results for Managers
About 96% of unhappy customers don’t complain, however 91% of those will simply leave and never come back to your store.
As a manager, you are required to be thinking about and doing many things at once. In addition to hiring and training, you need to work with associates to determine their tasks, along with fulfill needs for paperwork and processing on a daily basis.
As if that doesn’t keep you busy enough, you also field inquiries throughout the day from your associates based on customer inquiries. Two way radios allow you to answer those questions quickly, while not having to step away from the task at hand. The result is a win-win for all – manager and customer.
Results for Associates
Approximately 80 per cent of associates in retail say better in-store communication increases customer satisfaction.
Not every associate is going to know the answer to questions posed to them throughout the work day. In fact, in large stores it may even be difficult for one associate to find another to answer consumer inquiries. With two way radios, you can easily (and professionally) find a member of a department or team member who can help with your requests.
Additionally, if there are questions from associates that require management approval – whether it’s a return, or special discount, for example – employees are able to do so quickly.
Customers don’t have the time to wait for answers, and might even leave your store if it takes too long. For this reason alone, two way radios add value to customer service.
Results for Customers
Around 82 per cent of shoppers say the customer service they receive is their number one priority for in-store experiences.
