READING, U.K. - Sept. 16, 2022 - PRLog -- Verbatim Telephone Answering Service, one of the UK's leading telephone answering services has recently uncovered staggering statistics on accountants' digital customer service, via results of their extensive research study.

This research has revealed that 1/3 accountancy companies in the UK are virtually invisible in search engine results and 75% have neglected social media to promote their business; Verbatim's research highlights a negative picture for the industry. Verbatim's report also points to digital opportunities and examines examples of best practice to show what could possible.

So what were Verbatim's findings?
  • 81% of the accountancy websites we reviewed would be classed as 'difficult to read' even though the average reading age in the UK is nine.
  • 1 in 3 accountancy companies have websites which are virtually invisible in search results, preventing customers from finding their business online.
  • Despite over 95% of digital users frequently using social media, three-quarters of the accountancy companies we reviewed either didn't have a presence on LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter, or didn't promote it. In most cases, we found that those who did have a presence on one of the major channels would have a presence on all.
  • Only 8% of the accountancy companies we reviewed had web chat on their website, despite the fact that research has shown that 75% of millennials have confessed to avoiding phone calls.
Verbatim's report discovered that 92% of accountancy companies don't use web chat.

Digitally native customers like to be able to select their channel of preference and communicate via a screen; Contact Forms are often disliked by users, and many don't bother with them - 75% of millennials admit to avoiding phone calls. Verbatim Telephone Answering Service (https://verbatim-cc.co.uk/)'s research has found that accountants who are not embracing webchat are missing out on its' great customer service potential.

Despite over half of all website traffic coming from mobile devices in 2022, 61.2% of accountancy websites do not load fast enough for customers on mobiles.

Customers are waiting more than 'breath' for accountants' websites to load and will return to their search results to find another company. Verbatim has discovered that slow-loading websites are driving potential customers away from the very first click. Customers are now using mobile devices more than ever for the convenience of doing business on the go during a busy working day, which is why slow mobile speeds will frustrate and deter customers.

Overall Verbatim has shown that accountancy companies need to be embracing digital customer service. To read more about Verbatim's findings, view the full report here (https://verbatim-cc.co.uk/press-releases-are-accountancy-...).
