Customer Service Appreciation Week!

Did you know that October is Customer Service Month? We have some fabulous customer service representatives in our office, and we’ll be celebrating Customer Service Month by recognizing them and the wonderful work that they do for our customers, all week long!

Day after day they man the phones, ready to help with any and all questions, concerns, or changes that may need to be made.  We think that deserves a shout out, don’t you?  We decided to ask them a few questions so that everyone can learn a little bit more about these representatives, and put a face to the people that do so much for our customers!

Spotlight On: Christine Rojcewicz!

chrissy

We have some very exciting news in our office!  One of our very own employees has been nominated as a Massachusetts Association of Insurance Agents 2014 CSR Star!  Christine Rojcewicz, or Chrissy as she is known around the office and to customers, started at MassDrive in July of 2013, and came to us with no experience whatsoever.  Since then, she has quickly learned the ropes and become an invaluable part of our team!  She handles every phone call with professionalism and grace, and always remains calm no matter what situations arises.  We wanted to take a few minutes to chat with Chrissy and find out a little more about her and her job as a CSR rep.

What’s your favorite thing about your job?

My favorite thing about my job is the customers. I love to help others, and being a customer service rep is all about helping others! I really enjoy working together with our customers to find the best solution to any problem, no matter how complicated. I love a challenge!

What’s the hardest thing about your job?

The hardest part of my job, particularly my role as a retention specialist, is explaining tough rate increases to customers. I place great importance in being certain that the insured truly understands their coverages and any reasons for premium changes. Often, the cause of the rate increase is ambiguous, but I always try my best to clarify the specific reasons for the increase, or decrease, not just quote a price without an explanation. Insurance rates are not black and white, and it is important to me that the insured is comfortable with the insurance they are receiving and the reasons for the cost.

 What do you think it takes to be a good customer service rep?

To be a good customer service rep, one needs to have patience and  perseverance. This job is not easy, but it has the potential for fulfillment and forming great relationships. It takes a lot of patience and humility to remain calm and cooperate with a difficult customer, but when the experience is positive for the insured, it is positive for me as well! The feeling I get after finishing a particularly successful call is very rewarding.

 What’s the key to dealing with an angry customer?

Dealing with angry or upset customers can be very difficult, but the key is to empathize. I try my best to put myself in the customer’s shoes and see the situation from his or her point of view. Often, when I do so, the reason for the customer’s frustration and anger becomes apparent, and I can better assist them.

What do you wish all of your customers knew?

I wish all my customers knew how difficult being an insurance customer service representative can be, and I wish they knew just how far a simple “thank you” really does go. My coworkers and I love nothing more than to share with each other when insureds are grateful and provide positive feedback. Often, a little appreciation can turn my whole day around!

In addition to answering phone calls, keeping up with paperwork, and so much more, Chrissy also implements our Renewal Readiness Program™, which monitors our customer’s policies that are about to renew, and will re-quote them if there is a significant increase in price.  She always goes above and beyond to make sure our customers have the most pleasant experience possible, so we’re wishing her the best of luck in this contest, no one deserves it more than she does!

Furry Friend Friday With Bosco!

bosco 4

It’s our favorite day of the week again, Furry Friend Friday!  Our special guest this week is extra cute if you ask us, he’s a 7 month-old schnauzer mix named Bosco!  This cute little puppy is currently up for adoption at the Scituate Animal Shelter and has been there since July, so he’s overdue to find his forever family!

So Bosco, how does a cute little pup like you wind up in a shelter?

Well I was actually found as a stray on the south shore, I’m not exactly sure where, but Animal Control picked me up.  They didn’t have a facility to keep me in, so I ended up at the Scituate Animal Shelter!  I really lucked out, everyone here is so nice!  I’m definitely ready to find my forever family though, I’ve been here since July and even though everyone here is so nice, I’d love to have a family that could give me all of their attention and love!

What’s your favorite way to spend the day?

Well I’m still a puppy, so I’m VERY active.  I love to run around outside, go for walks, explore new places like the beach, and play with my toys!  The staff here are always trying to get me to play fetch, and I always run after the ball but won’t pick it up and bring it back, I guess you could say I’m still figuring that game out.

Do you have a favorite toy?

I love those fluffy toys with a squeaker on the inside.  Not only are they cute and cuddly, but I can’t get enough of that squeaky sound!

Is there anything that makes you nervous?

Not really, everyone here says that I’m a very confident and outgoing boy.  I guess my time on the streets as a stray made me pretty tough!

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

Well as you already know, I’m still a puppy, and I hate to admit it but I could definitely use some more training.  I’d need to go to a family that could be patient with me and show me the ropes so that I can be the best pet possible!  I’d also love to go to a family with kids that I could play with, the staff here think that I should go to a home with kids ages 8 and up, since I can be a bit rambunctious when I play and wouldn’t want to knock down any little kids.  My last request would be to go to a family that could handle my energy level.  I’d need to go on long walks or be able to run around inside a fenced-in back yard.

Bosco, why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

Hmm, well I know I’m just a young pup but it seems obvious to me that pet insurance is a good idea.  Pets can get sick or hurt unexpectedly and those vet bills can be very expensive!  I think that pet insurance sounds like a good idea because if pet owners have it, they won’t have to pay a huge bill at once if their pet needs to go to the vet.

Bosco may be young, but he’s a very quick learner!  That’s why we’re sure he’ll find the perfect family for him very soon!  If you think pet insurance sounds like something you’d be interested in, call us for a free quote and take the first step to protecting your furry friend’s future!

 

Furry Friend Friday With Elvira!

Elvira

We’re back with your Friday pick-me-up!  Our special guest for today’s Furry Friend Friday interview is named Elvira!  This pretty lady is a 3 year-old cat who’s up for adoption at the Lowell Humane Society, she’s been there since June so she’s definitely overdue to find a family of her own!

So Elvira, how does a pretty girl like you wind up in a shelter?

Well, I actually used to have a family, but they moved and unfortunately couldn’t bring me with them, so I ended up here.  I came in with my brother, Merlin.  We’ve been together since we were kittens, so we’re very close and would love to go to a home together, although it’s not a requirement.

What’s your favorite way to spend the day?

I’m still young so I’m very playful!  When I get really excited I do “happy paws” and roll on my back with my paws in the air while I play with my toys, it’s pretty funny if you saw it in person.  After I’ve gotten my energy out, I enjoy sitting on window sills and just watching the world go by.  I also LOVE getting brushed.  Have you ever had someone just sit there and brush your hair?  Well let me tell you, it is amazing, especially for me with my long, luxurious fur!

It sounds  like you are a very fun lady!  Do you have a favorite toy to play with?

I really like chasing after laser beams, it never gets old for me!  I could chase after those all day, it’s a great way to keep my girlish figure in shape!

Is there anything that scares you?

I hate to admit it, but I am very scared of dogs.  They’re usually not that friendly towards me, sometimes they growl, or even try to chase me!  If you ask me, that’s just plain rude.  Who can blame me though?  Wouldn’t you be nervous if a giant, barking dog was chasing after you?  I thought so.

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

I could really fit in with any loving family, as long as they could handle me being so active.  Like I said, even though it’s not required, I would really really love to go to a home with my brother Merlin.  I can also be shy at first when meeting new people, but I warm up very quickly.  When it comes to kids, the shelter thinks I would be good with them, as long as they were school age and cat-savvy.

Elvira, why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

I’m no doctor, but if I had to guess I’d say that pet illnesses and accidents are pretty common.  I’ve seen a lot of pets coming and going from the vet’s office, and while I’m sure they’re excited when they leave, their owners seem to be pretty upset when they see the bill.  Pet insurance seems like a good way to make sure your pets can get fixed up by the vet without their owners having to break the bank.

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!  Pets get sick just like people do, and their vet bills can be just as expensive as human medical bills.  Call us today for a free pet insurance quote and take the first step to protecting your furry friend’s future!
