Scenario: Problem Situation
Have you ever wondered why sales and service teams are mostly in tiff?
Well, in simple language it’s the key performing indicators widely known as KPIs that makes this difference so evident. Where the sales team is loaded with monthly targets to attain that business numbers, they in turn sometimes over sell or over commit for the sales to happen.
The main problem arises when the service team comes into the picture. It is the service team who generally interact with the customers post sales.
Now here’s the catch! Service team who manages the whole show is juggles between the raised customers’ expectations and the actual service they could provide.
This increases the conflicts between the two core teams Sales and Service and it gets difficult for both the teams to communicate.
Result, unmatched customer expectations, decreased satisfaction, on-going conflict and overall a tensed working environment.
