1.08 & 1.09HANDLE DIFFICULT CUSTOMERSPROCESSING TELEPHONE ORDERS

ARGUMENTATIVE CUSTOMERSThese customers are often insincere and quick-tempered.

Dishonest customers intentionally attempt to avoid paying part or all of the price for a good or service.

DOMINEERING/SUPERIORThese customers are over confident. They feel they know more and are better than the average person.

They feel they should be made to feel important and in charge.

SLOW/METHODICALThese customers are often hesitant to make buying decisions even when goods/services are wanted/needed. They require a lot of time to make a final buying decision. You'll find these customers frequently examine products several times on different occasions before deciding to buy.

Disagreeable customers are unpleasant and hard to help.

SUSPICIOUSThese customers want facts and proof before making the final buying decision. They tend to question everything you tell them. This skepticism may be the result of bad experiences with other businesses.

Suspicious customers will often be your customer for life if you can gain their confidence and trust.

HANDLING COMPLAINTSSalespeople handling complaints should take action based on their understanding of the complaint and the solutions possible within the business's policies. These policies should be explained to the customer.

HANDLING COMPLAINTSThe salesperson should not permit his/her OPINION of the customer to be a factor, whether the opinion is negative or positive.

S/He should also not be influenced by the customer's attitude. The time required to solve the problem is not as important as finding a solution.

INVESTIGATING THE PROBLEMOnce you fully understand a customer's complaint, you have to decide if the complaint is justified before you can resolve the situation. Investigating helps to determine how the situation can be handled within company policy.

INVESTIGATING THE PROBLEMRestating the complaint eliminates any misunderstandings. Taking action occurs after determining how the complaint can be handled.

Asking a supervisor about a complaint would only be done in unusual circumstances.

BUSINESS RELATED COMPLAINTSBusiness-related complaints are often based upon the number and types of services offered or the business's policies. Example restaurants policy of one check for a party of eight. The complaint should be with the restaurant and not the employee enforcing the policy.

ACCURATELY DETERMINING CUSTOMERS NEEDSCustomer complaints often occur when customers make improper buying decisions. Salespersons can help customers avoid dissatisfaction by accurately determining each customer's needs and suggesting appropriate products to meet those needs. Make sure they are satisfied before leaving

TELEPHONE ORDERSAccuracy in processing telephone orders is very important. Do not rely on your memory as you may forget the details. WRITE IT DOWN.

The customer should NOT be asked to come in to place the order. Taking telephone information is NOT part of the manager's responsibility.

TELEPHONE ORDERSRead the order back to the customer. Reading the order back to the customer allows the customer to confirm that the order is correct. It also allows the order taker to make any necessary changes.

TELEPHONE ORDERSCustomers expect their telephone orders to be processed correctly and efficiently. Businesses whose employees regularly make mistakes while taking telephone orders might eventually lose customers who are dissatisfied with the poor service.

TELEPHONE ORDERSCustomers may take their business elsewhere, if their telephone orders are regularly processed incorrectly. Frequent mistakes lead to a loss of business.

Businesses should take steps to remedy the problem of telephone order mistakes rather than stopping the service or computerizing the system.

TELEPHONE ORDERSOne of the 1st steps in processing an incoming telephone order usually involves obtaining the customer's name.

Many businesses accepting telephone orders maintain computerized files. When a customer calls, an order processor obtains and types the name into the computer, and accesses additional information, such as the mailing address.

TELEPHONE ORDERSIf a business does not have a computerized file or the customer is new, the processor needs to obtain the customer's name in order to begin the paperwork. After order processors obtain a customer's name, they may describe each item being ordered, explain the pricing policy, and check for availability.
