Following the trending changes in the business industry, human beings have become very receptive to the changes. Traditional businesses relied on human interaction to ensure that customers were satisfied. Such interactions included face-to-face inquiries, employee customer sales, and employee’s explanations. The resultant effect was to ensure that the customers were offered quality goods and services at their convenience. Reliability, on time delivery and proactive responses, were fundamental concerns to both customers and the business. Why is information technology important to business? Globalization and technology have led to sudden changes and new marketing technologies have been adopted by businesses. As such, self-service technology has been in the forefront to foster customer service improvement.
The use of interface self-service technologies improves customer services by enabling the customers to be in control of the services that they would want to have at the time they need them. All that the business needs to do is to inform both its potential and actual customers of the various services and goods that are available in the market. Moreover, the business has the responsibility of developing user-friendly applications that are compatible with the mobile devices for effective use. Because the customers are aware of what they need, they would inquire through searching the website or any other online-based marketing strategy for the business.
Nonetheless, the employees and the business have to be patient to allow the customers to be acquainted with the new systems of online buying methods. Business employees, thus, should encourage the customers by offering assistance to those who may have difficulties in using the applications. Above all, maintain the quality of goods and service, ensure that their deliveries are on time, and be reliable and available at the customers’ convenience.
