MyOperator / Blog / Are you supporting your customers during demonetization?

That day I ordered a pair of jeans from an e-commerce website opting for the ‘Cash On Delivery’ option. At around 8:30 pm on the same day, when my dad switched on the TV, we were shocked at the announcement made by Mr.Modi to demonetize Rs. 500 and Rs.1000 notes with effect from 8th midnight. The decision was so abrupt and unexpected that I had no time to react. My mind was overflowing with questions one of them being how to go about changing the mode of payment of my order.

The news of “Demonetization” has struck really hard to the entire nation. 8th November, 2016 was the day when PM Narendra Modi demonetized the old currency notes. Although this move will be beneficial for the country in the long run, many sectors were hard hit due this in the short run. The newspapers were flooded with news highlighting the plight of businesses in various sectors and their customers.

My grandfather, who is a doctor told me that his receptionist is always on a call and his hospital remains flooded with calls after 8th November 2016. Most phone calls were queries regarding the mode of payment since many hospitals declared that they would still accept the old currency notes. It was only when I spoke with him about how missing out on these phone calls might lead to losing revenue that he realized the importance of attending to each one of them.

The secret to high business growth is through the customer’s heart and you can win the customer’s heart by an excellent customer support system in the times when they need you the most. I know at this time, businesses like yours must be flooding with customer calls and it is very important for you to manage all these calls efficiently in order to gain customers’ trust.
