  1. Generally speaking…
    Hi John,

    I would say that customer service is viewed in the present tense, whilst customer care is after sales.

    The easiest example that springs to mind is the sale a car. Good customer service should ensure the sale. Good customer care should ensure repeat business.

    Does that help?



  2. Customer Care v Customer Service
    Customer Service is what you do. Customer Care is what you give. Essentially I would say they are the same thing to all intents and purposes. My customer service team manage faults and enquiries for our customers while exibiting customer care skills. OK another way of saying this Customer Service is doing the job. Customer Care is understanding the customer’s needs. Showing empathy and the like.

  3. Customer Service & Care
    I have a couple of articles reference the subject of your posting.

    Please feel free to drop me an email confirming you interested in having them emailed.
