How would you describe what you believe excellent customer service should be in 3 words?


I thought it might be fun to post what everyone would consider excellent customer service in 3 words. This is not to hard as even if you do not do customer service you have been a customer and know what you want when you call in to get help.

Thanks for kicking off this discussion Suzanne. I'm going to move it over to the Admin Support category as it seems especially relevant for that area.

Thanks for thinking of this, Suzanne.


I gave this some thought, as I have been involved in the industry some, and of course also on the recieving end.

In my experiance, the second and third skills aren't rare, but combined with the first, that's a rare bird indeed.

Hi Suzanne,


Please to be onboard. For me these 3 words are the only definition for excellent customer service, hope you would agree: Exceeding Customer's Expectations.


Atleast for us Mauritian, this is what we believe on. Thanks for this wonderful question.

From my experience in Customer service, I can say the following:


1. Effective listener: Should be able to 'Listen' than just 'hear' what the customer has to say.

2. Knowledgeable: should know/ be well versed with the product/ service that he/ she is supporting.

3. Customer centric: Should be able to provide solutions or other alternative/ options for the customer, while                                                     working within his support policies/ boundaries.
