February 9, 2023 - 5 minutes read


Working as a customer service representative can be an exhausting job. Customer inquiries often require quick and accurate responses delivered in a pleasant, conversational tone. Although customer service reps are trained to handle these sorts of requests, there are several reasons that they can still struggle with it. Poorly-trained staff, lack of resources, and a demanding environment can all create obstacles for reps trying to swiftly address customer needs.

Fortunately, with the help of artificial intelligence technology (AI), like Dogtown Media’s newest mobile app MerlinAI powered by OpenAI and ChatGTP, customer service reps can quickly draft responses without tiring themselves out. Dogtown Media works with a number of organizations to develop AI apps. This AI, available on the Google Play Store and App Store, helps customer service reps save time by providing suggested answers that are most appropriate for each individual inquiry. MerlinAI is revolutionizing customer service in the 21st century by making it easier than ever before to respond to customers in a fast and efficient manner.

Why Customer Service Representatives Struggle

Poorly-trained staff is one of the most common causes of difficulty with responding quickly and accurately to customers. If employees lack the necessary training and knowledge required for their role then they won’t be able to provide the timely level of service expected from them. This may take the form of either providing inadequate information or taking too long to provide good solutions to customers’ issues. In either case, such errors result in frustrated customers and damage company reputation in the process.

Lack of resources can also hamper a rep’s ability to respond quickly and accurately to customer inquiries. Since there are limited resources allocated for customer service, it might be quite difficult for reps to find solutions right away. Oftentimes, support teams are stretched thin due to high demand and have difficulty finding solutions with quick turnaround times resulting in longer wait times imposed on customers awaiting help which could lead to dissatisfied clients and lose business opportunities.

Finally, a demanding environment can make responding efficiently nearly impossible for reps at times. Long hours coupled with unappreciative management can sap even the best motivated customer service rep’s energy and focus on resolving problems competently in a timely manner. It becomes more difficult for them to remain engaged simply because they’re unable to put forth their best efforts when faced with arduous tasks such as leaving customers feeling unheard or abandoned which no business wants their consumers to experience when dealing with any inquiries or problems that arise.

Due to poorly trained staff, lack of resources or a hectic atmosphere posed by an organization’s workplace environment, customer service reps may easily struggle responding accurately in a conversational manner in regards to addressing any issues customers encounter causing dissatisfaction. To improve this challenge organizations must make sure that its employees understand what is expected from them. Organizations should also ensure team members have access to necessary tools required for task allowance so that conversations don’t become never ending conversations when working through different scenarios. One tool that can be used is Merlin AI.
