Overview of Order Taking Services
When customers are ordering something simple, an automated telephone order taking system is usually sufficient, but oftentimes the buyer will have questions that are best handled with a telephone call. By contracting with an order taking call center, you can provide personalized, top-tier customer service.
Outsource Order Takers
Online shopping has opened a world of possibilities to businesses everywhere, but click-to-order services have a few drawbacks. Online order taking services are great at making ordering easy, but web store pages and individual item pop-ups are limited to answering detailed questions about products or services.
Sometimes it is just easier to speak with a customer service representative and order by telephone with an order taking call center. This is an aspect of retail that’s not going to disappear anytime in the near future. That is why ROI CX Solutions offers call center order taking services and order entry outsourcing designed to answer your customers’ questions and provide them with a positive experience that is profitable for your business.

How much are missed sales costing you? Today, many businesses outsource their phone order taking services to allow sales to continue beyond the regular 9 to 5 business hours.
Order entry outsourcing allows businesses to handle orders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Any set of instructions may be submitted to forward to your customer, such as product information, specials, cross-selling opportunities, pricing, payment options, etc.
Additionally, outsourcing online order taking allows guests to access your website’s live agent callback feature. Whether they prefer live chat over the web or toll-free phone access, your customers always have access to live interaction with our professional order takers. Without outsourcing, this constant connection with live order entry takers just isn’t possible for many companies and causes them to lose valued customers.

How Does An Order Taking Call Center Work?
Your order taking service will receive customized training to become experts on your brand and products. They will answer questions and process the orders, leaving you more time to concentrate on production and marketing. The order taking call center will also, whenever possible, integrate with your order-processing system, additionally streamlining your order fulfillment process.
Automated vs. Professional Telephone Order Taking
Instead of having service representatives take orders, businesses now can utilize technology for order processing. With an automated telephone order-taking service, you can automatically assign tasks, process orders, and verify them. Customers placing orders will also receive updates in real time.
In a professional telephone order taking process, live operators handle tasks manually, such as completing order forms and communicating with customers. Many companies believe this makes human errors more likely and may opt for an automated system. Using an automated telephone order taking system, however, is not without drawbacks.
The reality is that the majority of customers still prefer talking with a live operator before placing orders. A human touch reinforces the legitimacy of the business and assures customers that you are already processing their orders.
What’s more, many people are more comfortable with having a live person assist them and walk them through the process. Whenever a concern or question arises, customers can get a response right away.
At times, automation can hurt customer service when a business takes the focus away from customers. Depending too much on technology to reproduce human interactions can weaken your bond with them. Empathy and emotion play a big part in persuading customers to place orders and having them look forward to doing more business with you.
