Article : Always Room For Improvement

In your opinion, do you believe the customer service you get today from other companies is better or worse than it was say 5 years ago? We asked contact center professionals for their views on this question, as they would know the state of customer service best.

- a survey by Joss Jalbert,

Sarah-Jane Heber-Hall
Operations Director
Computertel Ltd.
United Kingdom

"I think it is dependent on the industry it relates to as to whether the expected and achieved standards of customer attention and service have indeed become noticably hightened, but on the whole the customer has most definately become a focus of commercial interest, along with the need to retain their existing customer-base and find upselling opportunities individually through customer relationship management techniques. This change in attention has indeed lead, in my opinion, to an escalation in generically better standards of customer service that I have received within the past few years."

Aminudin Zainodin
Assistant General Manager
Hong Leong Bank

"Better. From my experience dealing with complains, the turn around time has been faster. Back then we are ok with 7 working days, now the expectation of 7 or even 2 working days are no longer there. It's either 24hrs or immediate solve."

About Hong Leong Bank

Hong Leong Bank is a bank in Malaysia. Hong Leong Bank was founded by Lam Ji Chiew and began its operations in 1905 in Kuching, Sarawak under the name of Kwong Lee Mortgage & Remittance Company.
Nina Kokorska

Arnold Ward
Management Consultant

"Yes, service is worse for the most part. It is most unfortunate that as important as customer service is, companies become complacent and slowly degrade on the level of customer service they provide. Employees just don’t seem to care and one has to wonder whatever happened to "wowing" your customer. Being from Toronto, one does not have to look very far for a prime example, our transit operator, the TTC (Toronto Transit Commission). A lot of bad press just recently around the poor customer service they are providing, and instantly there is a fresh push to improve their image and the service they provide."


"In most industries slightly better as there is more awareness of what people want, however as consumers we are becoming more demanding."

Robert Wint
Senior Vice President Marketing, EMEA
United Kingdom

"I think in general it's got much better. The main reason for this is that most organisations now have much greater visibility or awareness when things aren't going well, and some are now even taking the most appropriate action to fix things that aren't going so well. This wasn't really the case five years ago."

Daniel Akre
Vice President Global Business Development
United States

"Worse - American work ethic continues to deteriorate as the majority of customer service personnel believe their low wage base requires less than excellent service levels and effort. Until Corporate America understands their life blood is in the front lines, consumers/ customers will be ill-served by low wage, neophytes incapable of serving the needs of a more savvy and informed public.

are required to follow "Policy" which lends to inflexibility to long time customers"

Steffen Wuth
Managing Director

"The service has become worse in my opinion. The time I have to wait until my call is connected has increased. The time until my question is answered / my problem is solved has increased, partly because agents do not know basics, e.g. I asked German pay-tv operator Sky to change my STB-card from satellite to cable. I had an older cable-STB and mailed all the details to Sky so they could send me the right card. After more than 3 months and several cards that could not be initiated, Sky told me that my STB was to old and I had to buy a new one. With the details I had given them, I would have expected the answer right at the first time."

Jonathan Grant
United Kingdom

"It is difficult to say that customer service has improved over the past five years because most companies are still being held back by their legacy communications systems. Businesses have solutions in place that are acting as a straight jacket and restricting their ability to be flexible to customer needs. Unfortunately, until a company upgrades the technology available to contact centre operatives it will be impossible for them to improve the level of service offered to customers."
