Social networks and digital channels have changed customer behaviours, raising their expectations dramatically. They want to have conversations with brands via social networks, instant messaging and chat apps and expect fast and effective resolutions to their issues. Consequently, time and effort have become the two main drivers by which customers measure a brand’s ability to deliver great or bad experiences.

Service is indeed the new battlefield on which customer loyalty needs to be won. For brands, this is a challenge but also a unique opportunity to transform customer service from an after-sales unit into a profit centre. In fact, by delivering outstanding experiences, brands can stand out from their competitors without the need to lower prices.

The key is to seamlessly integrate digital channels while properly training staff members, which implies handling a set of processes and disciplines known as digital customer service. Although more and more brands are investing in it, those that have been successful have been able to consistently measure and control every step of this digital itinerary. This executive course will enable you to smoothly manage this crucial transformation of your customer service and, ultimately, of your whole business.


This course will build and train ‘Digital Customer Service Managers’—brand new professionals with the digital skills needed to transform customer service from a cost a to profit centre within their organizations.

Main operational goals:

  • Increasing customer loyalty and advocacy
  • Gaining customer productivity from customer service staff
  • Taking advantage of digital channels to lower the average cost per interaction
