Conclusion

Telephone Telephone communication is a type of verbal communication. It also includes elements on non verbal communication, such as tone of voice, though not as many as face to face communication. More and more companies are increasing their use of the telephone in communicating with customers. Call centers and mail order are the fastest growing operational departments for UK organizations. In telephone communication, it is essential for all employees to represent their organization in a professional and friendly way. Internet and intranet The internet providers businesses with the ability to make information widely available. A number of businesses also use the internet to sell products or services. For internal communication, companies will often use an intranet. This works in the same way as a website on the internet, but is limited to internal use only. Putting information such as phone directories, product information, health and safety procedures, etc. on the intranet can be much less expensive than using printed documents. Confidential information When working in customer service, it is essential to know what information is confidential. There will be certain information about a business that must not be passed not to anyone outside the company. Any information that, if disclosed, could damage the business's reputation or service or affect its competitive advantage would be sensitive.
