Think about a cat. You can give it treats every day, building up its trust in you and creating loyalty, but if you spray it with the garden hose just once, chances are that cat will never trust you again for as long as you live.
Building trust is especially important in the insurance industry. When someone decides to purchase insurance, whether for their home, vehicle or life, they are putting their trust in their insurance provider to take care of them if something goes wrong.
Everybody wants to feel like they will be protected in times of trouble. A big part of that is finding an insurance company that will listen, understand, and always be there to offer the highest level of support, no matter what. In other words, finding a company that you can trust.
Just consider the frustrations that many customers face. If you phone your insurance provider and your call doesn’t get answered right away, or you can’t understand what the customer service agent is saying, or worst of all, the person on the other end of the line is unhelpful and doesn’t seem to care about your issue at all, how would that make you feel?
Probably pretty bad. You most likely would not want to do business with people like that, and you certainly would not trust them to be there for you during an emergency.
That’s why it is so important for insurance companies to offer high-quality customer care. A single case of poor customer service can damage a company not only by turning off an existing customer, but also by deterring other potential consumers if that person complains to friends, posts a negative message on Facebook, or Tweets about the experience. In today’s Web 2.0 environment, where everyone is connected all the time, all it takes is one unhappy vocal person to make a huge difference to a company’s reputation.
In order to minimize damage and maintain a high level of trust with customers and the general public, it makes a whole lot of sense for insurance companies to outsource their customer service function to professionals.
Of course, this doesn’t mean simply going with the lowest bidder and assuming that everything will automatically work out fine. Not all customer service call centers are created equal, and it is important to consider things like agent turnover rates, reputation for quality, and industry expertise when making the decision to outsource. After all, if you want to build high levels of trust with your customer base, doesn’t it make sense to work with an outsourcing company that you can trust yourself?
