An LMS is key to improving the customer experience. See how the Dokeos LMS empowers your employees and can ultimately increase sales.

Improve Your Customer Experience With Dokeos LMS Customer Support Training

Your business is trying to grow in a competitive landscape. But in a world where the competition can steal your ideas, products, and even your employees, it can feel tough to differentiate yourself.

Fortunately, there’s one thing your competitors can’t take from you: how you treat your customers. After all, brands lose $62 billion every year because of poor customer service. But when you invest in customer service, 52% of customers are willing to pay more for a better experience—they’re even five times more likely to buy more from you, too.

While customer service might come naturally to a few people, the reality is that better customer service comes with regular training. Customer support training coaches your employees and gives them the tools they need to serve the people who matter most: your customers.

The benefits of customer support training with an LMS

Whether it’s marketing, IT, or product support, you need to train every client-facing employee at your business.

But forget the outdated paper packets and expensive in-person training: an LMS (learning management system) is the key to improving the customer experience, empowering employees, and, ultimately, increasing sales.

When you opt for a modern LMS for customer support training, you’ll see benefits such as:

  • Improved customer support: Don’t throw customer service agents into the fray without training. Customer service training helps agents improve their soft skills so they can handle difficult customers and escalations with ease. Training can also increase your team’s product knowledge, giving them regular insight into the customer experience.
  • Employee retention94% of employees would stay in their jobs longer if their employer invested in them. When you invest in proper customer service training, you keep your support team on board longer. Instead of constantly hiring new people, you cut down on recruitment costs and enjoy the sustained organizational knowledge of long-term support agents.
  • Time savings: Are your customer service employees scrambling for answers while your customers wait? Since 40% of customers say they want their problems solved more quickly, you need to shave time off your customer service calls. Training arms your team with the expertise they need to quickly and confidently answer customers’ questions,
  • Cost reduction: An LMS is superior to classroom learning from a cost perspective. Stop paying for travel, handouts, room rentals, AV, or instructors. Simply create your content once, upload it to the LMS, and reshare it with your customer support team as needed.
