Overview: Customer service in banking is one of the most important ways to keep customers coming back. It includes responding to customers’ questions and complaints in a thorough and timely manner and interacting with customers through faceto- face meetings, telephone, mail, fax and email. Most, if not all, bank employees are involved in some aspect of customer service.

A complaint is an expression of concern or dissatisfaction by any party against a bank. Because of increased competition, banks are required to become more and more customer-focused. It is more costly to acquire new customers than it is to retain existing customers.

Retaining customers requires customer service staff in banks to provide service that is quick, error-free and convenient. Good customer service is the heart of banking. Today banks have a wide variety of competitors for business. Because of the amount of competition, unique products in the banking industry aren’t as important as outstanding customer service. Banks continually strive for improvements in this area.

Examples of such techniques include taking customer surveys and monitoring calls that come in through the call center. Incentives, such as customer service awards, may be offered to encourage staff members to improve the customer support they offer.
