What does a customer service representative do for Ziggo?

A customer service representative helps Ziggo customers solve problems related to Ziggo’s products and/or services. You will be the first point of contact for people experiencing problems with the Internet, television or other products. But, you don’t know in advance what problem a customer is calling for. So you start over every time to put the puzzle together to solve customers’ problems. ‘Care’ is all-encompassing in this. You first put customers at ease and work together to find the solution. You don’t stop until the cause of the problem is found and fixed.

Because you are starting from the ground up every time, you are dealing with a fun and challenging position. No two customer calls are the same. This also applies to the solution; there is no one solution that applies to all problems.

Is this profession suitable for everyone?

Although many people assume they can become customer service representatives, in practice we often see that this is underestimated. It is a challenging profession and you really have to be able to put the puzzle back together every time and help people. This is because the customers you get on the phone have an acute problem and they expect you to be able to solve it quickly. Therefore, you must be naturally very helpful and able to be patient. After all, it is very annoying for customers when they have to be in a teams meeting in 5 minutes, for example, but the Internet is not working. This can cause a lot of frustration for customers.


What duties will you have as a Ziggo customer service representative?

As a Ziggo customer service representative, it is important to understand the problems, which the customer is experiencing, as well as possible and offer a solution to them. In addition to solving the client’s problem, you can start looking together at what other possible options might be of interest to him or her. When you hear children playing in the background and you see that the client does not have a family package, you might ask if a family package does not better suit today’s requirements and environment. When the customer agrees with you there, you have truly helped the customer and you can both end the conversation satisfied.

To provide the best service, take advantage of the available systems out there. From these systems you can bring out all the data about the customer. Among other things, you can see exactly what subscriptions they have, what types of products they use, what the family composition is, and what contact moments there have been before. Based on this data, you are able to present the customer with the best solution and satisfy them completely.

What conditions must a Ziggo customer service representative meet?

If you want to work in the Ziggo Customer Care department, you must really want to help people solve problems. You have the ability to get into the customer’s skin to identify what problems or shortcomings they are facing. And as a service agent, you offer them the most appropriate solution. So empathy is an important character trait that you need to possess if you are going to work as a ‘Customer Care Agent’. Because customers don’t just call, they often face an acute problem and they expect you to solve that problem as quickly as possible. In addition, you must be able to explain to the customer in a calm and clear manner how the problem arose and why something does or does not work. And what they can do to prevent it in the future.

And if the situation arises that you can’t fix the problem, you’ll call in a technician to go by the customer and fix the problem. In fact, a service agent must go back and put the puzzle back together and identify the problem with the customer on every call. You try to understand the situation as best you can and offer the right solution. You communicate this to the customer so they know what to expect and how their problem will be fixed.
