Our Live Chat Support Training Course is a half day course that looks at best practice and tips and techniques to help deliver high-quality customer service to your customers who choose to use Live Chat Support.

Many businesses today are turning to Live Chat Support as a further channel of communication for their customers.  What we don’t always recognise is that the same level of customer service standards should still apply online as they do in face to face interactions.

When mistakes are made, customers holding on for longer than necessary or where poor spelling and punctuation exist, customers will leave with a bad impression of the company.
