Customer Service Queries & Complaints handling Process
At Blacknight we take customer service very seriously.
Should you need to contact us with a query you have several options:
- Telephone during office hours Irish time
- Email 24 / 7
- Live chat
- Via various social media channels including Twitter and Facebook
Our customer service agents use Zendesk to manage their interactions with you so you can easily see at any time the progress of your query.
We will endeavour to respond to all customer queries within 1 working day, though generally you’ll get a reply a LOT faster!
During Irish bank holidays our response time may take up to 3 days
Complaints and Service Escalations
Nobody is perfect and from time to time things can and will go wrong.
If you are unhappy with the services we provide to you or how we’ve handled your customer service queries we want to know about it.
Blacknight have established an escalation team comprising managers from each department. On receipt of a customer complaint via email, an email is sent to all members of this team. A member of the team will accept the query and respond to it within an hour (during Irish work days) indicating that the issue is being addressed or investigated as appropriate. All frontline customer service team members have been made aware of the escalation procedure in the event a customer service query needs to be raised with a member of this team.
All members of the team are copied on any correspondence in relation to the issue until it has been closed off. Issues are reviewed at manager meetings monthly.
