Navigating Customer Service Challenges in an Impatient World: Our Experience at Basic Software Systems


In today’s fast-paced, technology-driven world, the once-cherished virtues of politeness and patience seem to have been swept under the rug. We have not changed our service model or philosophy at Basic Software Systems. However, the landscape of the service world has immensely changed over the past few years. In this change of scenery, we have all found ourselves frustrated and feeling as if “we just can’t get good service anymore.” Additionally, all of us in the service industry have experienced the increasing impatience of customers firsthand and its impact on the customer service industry. But we refuse to let it dampen our spirits or compromise our commitment to treating our customers with respect and dignity, even if our efforts go unnoticed or unappreciated.

At Basic Software, we’ve decided not to let these changing attitudes dictate our service model. Instead, we remain steadfast in our focus on empathy, patience, and politeness – qualities that set us apart in this increasingly impatient world.

As we all navigate these customer service challenges, let’s remind ourselves of the following key points:

Be patient: Everyone has their battles and stressors, which may make them short-tempered or impatient.
Be polite: No matter how you’re treated, always maintain a professional and courteous demeanor to defuse tense situations.
Try to have empathy: Put yourself in the customer’s shoes to better understand their frustrations and concerns.
Treat others how you would like to be treated: Even if it’s rare, treat others with the respect and kindness you hope to receive.

Together, let’s continue to push through these difficulties and maintain the highest standards in customer service, regardless of the challenges we face.
