- Knowledgeable of products and customers
Customers reach out to us for multiple reasons, mostly revolving around a request for our knowledge to benefit their organization. Requests can be as simple as administrative assistance, or complex such as
assisting with providing a platform for their largest event of the year. It is our job to make the client feel at ease no matter the importance of the request, and know that the 1Soruce team will provide the best experience for all of their needs.
- Be accessible and respond promptly
The Huffington Post released an article on how customers may feel when an email is received with no response:
- Did you see my email?
- Am I low priority and you’ll respond ‘later’? If so… when is ‘later’??
- Did your server block my message?
- Did my server block your response?
- Perhaps you are working on a response — so I should wait?
- Do you need more time?
- Did I upset you — was my request inappropriate or was my email tone harsh?
- Perhaps you did see my email and don’t care.
Unlike most of our competitors, 1Source provides a dedicated account manager to each customer, to avoid the non-response feelings above. This resource ensures the client is always greeted with a familiar name that knows and understands their account. In addition to having a dedicated resource, we also support our clients with a dedicated team that can ensure all requests are answered promptly and accurately if their manager is unavailable.
Working in technology leads to multiple terms that have different meanings to each individual. When clients call in for a conference call, audio line, webinar, event, etc., it is our job to listen to the clients need and provide the best possible solution. Here at 1Source we pride ourselves in offering multiple platforms that allows each client to explain their unique needs while 1Source packages together the best option. In addition to scheduling or assisting with administrative work, your dedicated team is also hear to listen and assist with any request your team may have.
