Breaking Down the Fine Line Between Adequate and Exceptional Service Provider Support

Technology plays an integral role in our lives, and we rely heavily on it (borderline dependent). If you’re a remote worker, your mobile phone, laptop are attached at your hip, and we expect our devices to always work. For a technology service provider like Magic Apple, that’s music to our ears. However, when things go wrong, we turn to our service providers for support

Technical support is handled through many channels, including phone, email, live chat, and in-person support. Regardless of the channel, it’s essential to understand what you can expect when it comes to the support you receive from your communications provider. We’ll explore what you should expect from your service provider. 

Service Provider Support: Availability 

One of the most important things to expect from your provider is availability. The best ability is availability. Most service providers offer support 24/7, 365 days a year. However, this may vary depending on the provider and the type of support you need. Make sure to check their support hours and availability before signing up for their services. You can also add support requirements to an SLA

Service Provider Support: Problem Resolution 

How well does your provider handle problems? The support representative should be able to resolve the issue promptly. If the issue cannot be resolved immediately, the support representative should provide a timeline for resolution and keep you updated on the progress. 

Service Provider Support: Response Time 

You should expect a prompt response. While response times can vary, it’s reasonable to expect a response within a few hours for email support and minutes for live chat or phone support. Keep in mind that response times may be longer during peak hours or if the issue is more complex. 

Service Provider Support: Outstanding Customer Service 

The fifth thing to expect from your service provider is excellent customer service. The support representative should be polite, patient, and understanding. They should be willing to go the extra mile to ensure that you are satisfied with the solution provided. 

Service Provider Support: Knowledgeable Staff 

The third thing to expect from your service provider is knowledgeable staff. The support representatives you speak to should be able to diagnose the problem and provide a solution. They should also have a deep understanding of the technology they are supporting and be able to explain the issue in a way that is easy to understand. 

When you choose a communications provider for their support, you’ll enjoy the following benefits. 

  • Reliability. A service provider with strong support is more reliable. They’re more likely to deliver as promised and are more consistent and proactive when solving issues. You may not even know there are issues! 
  • Uptime. A strong support team ensures 99.999% uptime. In most cases, the provider has a team available at all hours of the day and night. In the event something goes wrong, they may already know the issue before you even make the call. 
  • Reduced stress. Outstanding service provider ends unnecessary stress. Running your business is stressful enough. You shouldn’t have to worry about the uptime of your phone service.
