Customer Support

Given what we do for a living here at Customer Thermometer, we’ve always known that our customer support needs to be top notch. Our customer service approach comes very much from the heart. We genuinely support our customers as we would like to be supported. No gimmicks or giveaways, but genuinely excellent service that solves problems and takes pain away.

The result is our Ministry of Magic – our name for our customer support department. Every customer email is written and then reviewed for that extra 10% of magic, help or advice to ensure that we knock it out of the park. Every customer request or suggestion is shared, investigated for what can be learned and genuinely appreciated. In this section of our blog, you’ll find amongst other great content, our own internal customer support handbook – Good Magician, Bad Magician – a really popular download.
