    Default Re: Please correct the following sentences

    Most companies with a Customer Sevices call centre seem to provide the staff with a script from which they are rarely allowed to deviate, which can be infuriating for the customer. If you are lucky enough to have some leeway and autonomy with what you can say, then I have a couple of suggestions:

    - Repeating the customer's name can become very annoying instead of its intended purpose of sounding engaged and respectful. Don't use it every time you speak.

    - Only say things like "I will definitely get that sorted out for you" if you know you can do so. If not, say "I will do everything I can ..." or "I will try to sort that out..."

    Firstly, I thank you for replying and helping me! You are certainly right, in our company as well, they have provided us with a script. And I really hate copy pasting that. I want to sound a real & genuine customer care representative. When I use that given script, I feel like working as a robot :D

    I know my written skills are not that good, however, I'm trying my best to improve. And I definitely gonna improve with the help of wonderful guys like you :)

    Many thanks,
    SAM

    Question One more question guys.

    I have one more question to ask. Sometimes while chatting, customer keep on saying about his issue. At that moment, can I use sentences like "I hear you" "I see what you mean" "tell me more" "OKay" "Hmm......I got it right".

    I just want the customer to know that I'm listening to him. If I don't use these sentences during the conversation, then, customer might feel that I am ignoring him.

    Regards,
    SAM
