Seyi Popoola-Adkins
Customer Service Manager, UK & Ireland

Seyi Popoola-Adkins joined LM Information Delivery in September 2018 as Customer Service Manager for the UK and Ireland.

She may be fairly new to the world of publishing and subscription management but has worked in customer services for approximately 22 years, having previously worked various sectors such as telecommunications and housing.  Although the industries may differ, good customer service is a universal requirement in all sectors, according to Seyi.

“For me, the journey always starts with the customer. Listing to their needs, ensuring they receive the best possible service and that the team delivers that. I want to see us to building good, long-lasting relations with our customers so that they can truly rely on us to be an invaluable extension of their own teams, enabling them to focus on their patrons and their other daily tasks.”

As Customer Service Manager, Seyi’s responsibilities include managing the UK Customer Service department, including training the team and ensuring they’re confident and supported in their daily work. She’s also the first point of contact for the escalation of any customer service issues.

Exciting innovations in Customer Service technology at LM

Seyi is particularly excited about the recent development work undertaken by LM Information Delivery to improve the Customer Service experience with the introduction of Salesforce’s ServiceCloud.

“I’m confident that working with Service Cloud will give us a 360-degree view of our customers and enable us to deliver smarter, faster, and more personalized service.” comments Seyi, “We have developed an integration with our back-end system, which means that not only are we able to prepopulate data into our customer’s email queries, we are also able to connect data back to our system without the need for time-consuming manual data entry, giving our account managers more time to focus on their customers.”

We are currently working on connecting different key articles and topics to our ServiceCloud which will also enable us to monitor our service metrics and track key performance indicators in a revolutionary way, unprecedented within the industry.

“The best part of it all is that our Customer Service can directly link information to our Sales staff, so that they are also updated with vital information” she added.

Seyi is married with 3 children (2 daughters and a son).  In her spare time loves listening to music, reading and is a committed supporter to her children’s many hobbies which include Karate, Dance, Netball and Football.
