What Customer Service means to me

Before moving to Colorado, I worked at PECO Energy in Philadelphia as a Customer Consultant and did everything from A to Z to help our customers from billing explanations to emergency call taking. I also referred people to agencies to help pay their bills, including interviewing customers in person regarding the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. I gave rate calculations and sent them adjusted bills. It was important to satisfy each customer, whether over the telephone or in person. Listening to their inquiries was a skill that I developed in order to answer their questions. Sometimes I had to send them written confirmation to close an investigation.

When it comes to serving our customers, whether you are selling a product or service...their concerns matter. They need to know, that they are talking to a person who cares (not a computer) and they want us to get to the bottom of things. Great customer service leads to repetitive sales and good referrals. Sales isn't always about money. A little TLC can go a long way. Satisfaction Guaranteed.

Record Retention & Business Relationships

I have always worked with records throughout my career in account management. At PECO Energy I was the subject matter expert in the correspondence area. I also investigated former address customer inquiries that may have required written utility reports.

At Agilent Technologies I had to look up the purchase orders that the buyers sent us and compare it with their records in order find out why the buyer would not pay the invoice(s). Once I completed my research, they paid the bills.

At SKLD I worked with tapes of documents dating back to the 1800's to 2000 for Title companies. At some other offices I worked on updating general files. I have updated accounts on many different computer systems. Most recently on the Customer Relationship Management system in SOHO/CRM in Sales & Marketing.

In order to conduct research, I had to maintain good business relationships with internal & external customers. Relationships are a two-way street. Volunteering to help out with projects is always a big help to management. Access to customer's records to complete research or to help customers understand their bills/invoices also contributes to better working relationships.
