The mastery of customer service can mean the difference between success and failure. The corporate trend of raising customer service is a business necessity. Customers are more willing to forgive a product failure than a service failure by a ratio of 5 to 1. If customer retention is important, then improving customer service must be the tactic. Unfortunately in many companies, the customer has become a low priority. When people are not treated according to their expectation, they will take their business elsewhere. What’s more, they relay their bad experience to ten or more other people. The question then becomes not whether to improve your company’s service standard, but how. Excellence in customer pays off dramatically to the bottom line in every industry.

As with all of our results-oriented processes, the facilitation is customized to meet the specific customer service issues within your organization.
