If one is talking about flawless customer support operations, then it is the duty of the customer care department of the company to provide services that are at par with international standards! Often, this department is empowered by a call center solution.
The quality of service relies on the executive handling the customer call as well as the call center software the department is using.

It is the standard that is followed all over the world today and is not a niche practice!
