Language: SpanishDescription: La importancia de la comunicación, y de los procesos seguidos en la atención al cliente, es especialmente relevante en el sector turístico por sus características (es más dependiente de valores intangibles cuyo enlace principal es la comunicación). La existencia de un canal de información constante entre el cliente y la empresa que proporciona el servicio turístico, no es sólo una herramienta de marketing y fidelización sino, en muchas ocasiones, la única garantía para el cliente de que el servicio cumple con los requisitos de calidad. Esto se debe a que el momento de consumo del servicio no coincide con el momento de adquisición del mismo, creando cierta incertidumbre en el proceso.Independientemente de que la comunicación con el cliente sea directa, no podemos olvidar que debemos poner de relieve nuestras mejores cualidades y hacer uso de nuestra capacidad de comunicación, verbal y no verbal, para que el cliente se sienta cómodo. Se trata de crear la atmósfera idónea para lograr nuestro objetivo.Instructor Description: Este curso incluye un mentor y ayuda asistencia escritorio educativo.
