PHENOMENAL customer service. There are a lot of platforms out there that provide a similar service to Signeasy. What they don’t provide is a personal customer service experience.
This G2 review, shared by one of our customers, represents the consistent positive feedback we receive.
At Signeasy, customer support is a big deal.
As a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company, providing outstanding customer support is crucial. Professionals from sales, HR, legal, and operations teams use Signeasy to streamline their work. Any issues with our platform can disrupt their workflow and negatively impact their customer experiences.
Our goal at Signeasy is to simplify business operations globally. By prioritizing productivity and delighting customers, we aim to free our users from the hassles of paperwork.
At Signeasy, we consider ourselves problem solvers, attentive listeners, and champions of our customers. We’re the first point of contact when our customers have issues or questions about the product. Building a genuine connection with our customers is what defines our brand.
Effective global customer support requires understanding and addressing the unique challenges that arise from serving diverse customers across different time zones, languages, and cultures.
So, how do we make this happen?
1. Cultural sensitivity
Recognizing and respecting cultural differences is fundamental in our global customer support. We train our support agents to be culturally sensitive and active listeners to prevent misunderstandings and foster positive interactions.
Empathy is a non-negotiable in delighting customers. By understanding diverse communication styles, we can significantly enhance the customer experience. In some cases, a screen-sharing session is all we need. For those who are receptive to visual guidance, we provide FAQ or visual representation.
2. 24/7 support coverage
Offering round-the-clock support ensures customers in different regions receive prompt assistance, regardless of their local time. We achieve this with a distributed support team to ensure continuous coverage. A day-to-day support team’s routine might include little overlap but guarantees the right foundation for a high-performing team.
3. Personalized and empathetic approach
Every customer is unique, and personalizing support interactions can have a big impact. Everybody likes to feel heard! Addressing customers by their names, understanding their specific needs, and showing empathy towards their concerns creates a positive experience. It’s all about being kind while lending a helping hand.
At the end of the day, we’re all human, and we’re here to help. By acknowledging our mistakes, we show that our team is accountable and willing to take responsibility. Our team understands the impact our actions have on our customers. Honesty, coupled with empathy, goes a long way. Customers value knowing the truth and the feeling that we genuinely care, even if it's not what they hoped for.
4. Swift response and resolution times
Establishing clear service-level agreements (SLAs) for response and resolution times helps manage customer expectations. Implementing an efficient ticket management system allows our team to prioritize urgent issues, and provide regular updates on the progress of the resolution.
5. Global support tools and platforms
Using reliable support tools and platforms helps streamline the support process across different regions. Platforms like Freshdesk, Chargebee, Datadog, JIRA, Sendgrid, and Postman, to name a few, enable efficient handling of customer inquiries, proper tracking of tickets, and seamless collaboration among support teams. Reliability and consistency are key.
6. Knowledge sharing and collaboration
Encouraging knowledge sharing and collaboration within a global support team promotes consistency. Creating centralized documentation, holding regular team meetings, and using communication and collaboration tools help us share best practices, troubleshoot techniques, and gather insights from everyone on the team. It’s an easy way to figure out what the team is doing well and how it can be continued.
Also, internal collaboration between support teams and other departments, such as product, engineering, success, and sales, is essential for delivering comprehensive customer support. Sharing customer insights, feedback, and pain points internally can drive product improvements and align our organization toward customer success.
7. Champion customer’s voice
True customer champions value and prioritize the voices of their customers. We do that at Signeasy by regularly seeking customer feedback and insights, conducting satisfaction surveys, and analyzing support data to help identify patterns, address recurring issues, and enhance the overall support experience. In turn, we build stronger customer relationships and make continuous service improvements.
Building the bridge to customer-first support
In the support world, every day brings something new, but it’s what keeps us sharp and on our game! Adopting a culture of continuous improvement is crucial in global customer support.
As the SaaS industry evolves, providing exceptional customer support is a key differentiator. By implementing proactive communication, multi-channel support, self-service options, personalized interactions, swift responses, continuous training, proactive issue resolution, and fostering collaboration, SaaS companies can elevate their customer support and foster long-term customer loyalty.
Prioritizing customer satisfaction ultimately contributes to business growth and success in the competitive SaaS market.
