Luke Duffy, a member of the @ArgosHelpers social media team, got the tone just right when he replied to a customer asking when Argos would be getting more Playstation 4 consoles in its Moss Side, Manchester store.

As the nation's consumer champion the team here at Which? has strong expectations to live up to when dealing with customers! Like most contact centres we provide our agents with a set of KPIs in order to measure performance and ensure that standards are met. But this year particularly we have received some great 'extra feedback' from customers regarding a number of advisers who, in the eyes of our customers, have gone 'above and beyond' the kind of customer service level our clients expect.
While some retailers thrived on Black Friday and Cyber Monday - Amazon UK, for example, recorded Black Friday orders for more than 5.5 million goods with around 64 items sold per second - other retailers only just survived after not quite being ready for their customers! Sainsbury's was all over the news as customers fought to secure 40" LED TVs at under £150, while Tesco's Black Friday Deals website unfortunately succumbed to high customer volumes, simply announcing that 'the service is unavailable'. Not a great customer experience!
