Solutions for Customer Service Training

Customer Service Representatives are the face of the company to its customers – making sure they represent the company well is mission-critical. To handle customer inquiries, representatives need to understand and apply policy and procedures, often while working with one or more computer systems, all while delivering outstanding customer service. Cedar prepares customer service representatives to integrate these skills by placing them in realistic customer situations where they practice using systems (typically simulated) to find the relevant procedure or policy information needed. They also have opportunities to practice good customer service, and see the impact their responses have on the customer and how satisfied the customer is with the interaction, Cedar has developed customer service training for a variety of organizations – including non-profit, governmental, and financial services organizations.
