Customer Assistance Technology

Customer service representatives interact with customers to handle complaints, process orders and provide information about an organization’s products and services.


Customer service representatives answer questions or requests from customers or the public. They typically provide services by phone, but some also interact with customers face to face, by email, or live chat.

In certain industries, such as finance and insurance, customer service representatives must remain current with changing regulations.

Employment of customer service representatives is projected to decline -1% from 2020 to 2030.
