Advanced Certificate in Customer Service Excellence (ACCSE)


Advanced Certificate in Customer Service Excellence (ACCSETM)

Customer service is, to customers, one of the most visible and significant aspects of their perceptions of the organisation. It will shape their opinions and will often be the differentiator even above pure price. For customers the quality of customer service determines whether to buy, and particularly whether to remain a customer. Customer service matters because everybody in every organisation either helps customers directly or helps colleagues (internal customers) who serve the paying customer. Customers can be described as fellow colleagues in addition to anyone that interacts with the organisation. Service creates and makes a company brand but also has the potential to destroy a business where the service falls short of customer expectations.

It is worth remembering that you have more opportunity to delight or lose a customer than the CEO! By pulling together and delivering great service, you will become a part of building the organisation but get increased levels of satisfaction. On completion of this five day training course you will receive your certificate which has been fully accredited by Qualifi, an official UK Government recognised awarding body
