How many less-than-stellar reviews have you received from a tenant whose phone calls to your facility have been unanswered? After numerous tries and many voicemails, this tenant is frustrated enough to leave a scathing review. And we all know how that affects your reputation.
Missed phone calls lead to lost opportunities and the potential for lost revenue. Not to mention outraged customers, unhappy staff, and negative reviews. Unanswered phone calls are a no-win situation for everybody.
It is possible, however, to keep everybody happy with the XPS Contact Center. Our contact center can tailored to your needs. Your customers will be satisfied, your employees will be content, and your self storage business will thrive.
The Importance of Customer Service in the Self Storage Industry
Exceptional customer service is crucial in the self storage industry. When customers need storage solutions, they want attention. They don’t want to listen to a phone ringing, and they don’t want to leave a voicemail that may not be answered until the next day. Investing in a professional self-storage call center ensures that every customer interaction is handled professionally.
A call center is the first point of contact for your potential and existing customers. It ensures that every call is answered promptly and professionally. Our call center can handle everything from a potential customer inquiring about unit sizes to an existing customer needing assistance with billing.
Exceptional customer service has a significant impact on the success of your self storage business. Satisfied customers are loyal customers, and they are more likely to recommend your business to everyone they know.
One way to keep your customers happy is with a professional call center.
