Constant feedback from customers is essential for many businesses, but especially those that are B2C and have customer service centers, require more practical ways for allowing their customers to leave comments and feedback about their experience. Department stores, restaurants, stores and, in general, those businesses that offer products and services personally to their consumers, must provide practical alternatives for reporting complaints, claims or customer feedback in general; This is even required by law in some countries.
The use of an exclusive phone line where customers can call for free to leave their comments, is a very effective solution and in many cases does not require human attention, since sometimes it just takes a phone line where your customers call, they are received by welcome greeting that explains how to leave the message before they are sent to voicemail. Routinely one of your agents check the audios and creates tickets in a helpdesk software or proceeds to notify the respective department where they are responsible for handling the claim or comment from the customer.
