Email and social media have become a standard customer service channels. How do you rate when it comes to responsiveness?
If you respond in about a day, you’re average at best according to the E-Tailing Group’s recent mystery shopper survey. The top-tier performers responded in about 3 and a half hours!

How do you stack up? And how do you monitor your response times?
