Let’s face it: customer service teams are often understaffed, and today — more than ever. 

Hiring new talent is often not an option, but you need to increase quality of service, not employee numbers.

The truth is, customer service efficiency doesn’t require an army of customer support agents. It’s not about the numbers, it’s about how you manage them, how you organize and optimize processes around your agents.

This month we focused on dissecting those understaffing challenges and learning from the best of the best to share working efficiency tips with you.
