Remote work in customer service
Contactless and crisis-proof: Remote work is regarded as a model for the Corona pandemic. Therefore, many companies offer their employees the opportunity to work from home short or medium term until the crisis is over. But remote work is more than an emergency or temporary solution. For many industries and professions, it offers advantages far beyond contact restrictions and hygiene measures: A significant gain in time and flexibility while maintaining the same quality of services. The best example: Jobs in customer service.
Customer service job - No short-time work and excellent conditions for remote work
Since the crisis, stable and well-functioning customer service is in higher demand than ever. Along with the uncertainty of many customers - depending on the industry - the volume of enquiries increases. In addition, there is the desire for reliable information as well as the need for easy accessibility without long queues. That explains why for 90 percent of service units short-time work was and is not an issue but rather the opposite.
For instance, a survey by the software association USU shows that 70 percent of the interviewed service organizations stated that they were able to continue their work productively during the crisis. Concerns that employees might work less efficiently and less concentrated from home than in the actual office have not been confirmed.
Instead, it is the spontaneous and complete switch from presence to remote work that brings challenges for companies. Although especially in customer service regulations regarding remote work have shown potential for years, they remained widely untouched until the crisis. In order to work efficiently from home, Call-Centre agents require not only reliable access to modern software and the appropriate hardware - a headset and two monitors - but above all one thing: A fast and uninterrupted internet connection that continues to provide the speed and level of service that consumers expect today. Many companies lack the right infrastructure and the necessary know-how, precisely in the event of a rapid and inadequately prepared transition.
