How About Some Customer Service?

- 5 MIN READ - 28 Apr 2015

Take a moment and think about the last time you had very positive customer service experience.

Was it because of the support person being extremely affable or getting to the point quickly or giving you enough context? Did it help to make your decision much easier?

82% of consumers say the number one factor that leads to a great customer service experience is having their issues resolved quickly. (LivePerson)

I might be one of those junkies, who think that helping and supporting customers is awesome. When you come to think about it, customer service is probably one of those few things anyone in a company could and should do. In an essence you get to experience your own customers “in the wild”, you get a pretty good sense of their workflow and you see where you fall short and can improve.

Let me break it down. When a customer has an issue, there is probably something that might need fixing. If there is something that might need fixing, you try to fix it. In case you don’t have those skills required to fix something yet, you poke someone who does have them.

I have been on both sides, drawing from my experience in sales, customer support and business development, and I know that “issue management” is not an easy task. However I have also learned that positive and patient responses create positive associations in place of a negative ones. Listening, doing your best and learning to deliver outstanding customer service will lead you to a better service and better relationship. No exceptions here.

70% of buying experiences are based on how the customer feels they are being treated. (McKinsey)

When a support request comes in here at Messente, there is a good chance that anyone is stepping away from their usual tasks to help someone get going with the 2-step verification API or kick-start their SMS notification service, or often just to stay up-to-date with the situation.

Having said that, if there is anything you would like to bring to our attention to, please give us a shout at support@messente.com. There is a good chance we can solve it quickly and completely.

Startup Conferences: What’s the point? (Slush 2017)

20 Oct 2017

With Slush coming up in about a month, it’s a good time ponder the purpose of large startup conferences. Many entrepreneurs head to conferences, like Slush, around the world and throughout the year looking for investments from venture capitalists and angel investors, yet there’s a lot more to gain from startup conferences. Think about it: there will be over 17,000 motivated and creative people in one place at one time. Get creative and gain as much as you can out of the experience.

The economics behind undelivered, failed SMS messages    

17 Oct 2017

The cost and full impact of undelivered or failed messages isn’t immediately clear. The financial impact is not simply the combination of the failed SMS and the cost to resend the message, which isn’t very much at times. There are other indirect costs that result from undelivered SMS messages that matter from a financial perspective. Let’s take a deeper look into the ripple effect of undelivered messages, which make the reasons behind our focus on SMS delivery quality even more clear.

Here are a few examples.

Fraud and Security: 2FA Considerations for PSD2

10 Oct 2017

The second Payment Services Directive (PSD2) is less than three months away from enforcement. While the regulation’s text is lengthy, a key component of the law is its extended reach in comparison to the first directive. PSD2 applies to all payment service providers and affiliates, including account information service providers and payment initiation service providers. In addition, the law applies when at least one part of the transaction is in the European Union. This means that payment service providers and their affiliates outside of the EU must comply with the law when the payer is in the EU. The additional geographical reach guarantees the same level of security expectations for all EU residents regardless of the location of the payment service provider.
