(ALL TIMES ARE IN ET)
Thursday, January 5th:
9:00 PM CUSTOMER (DIS)SERVICE
12:00 AM CUSTOMER (DIS)SERVICE
Customer (Dis)Service takes viewers right to the heart of the new global battlefield, where the customer and the corporation are at war. Mass consumption is at an all-time high and customers have more options than ever before, raising consumer expectations to new heights. At the same time, rapidly expanding corporations are looking to cut labor costs, outsourcing their customer service departments to the other side of the world. Face-to-face time between business and consumer is practically non-existent, and customer satisfaction has declined dramatically.
Are the corporations at fault for putting their bottom line ahead of customer satisfaction, or are consumers demanding too much from the corporations?
Whatever happened to good customer service?
