We had a good customer service ethos but needed to formalise our processes. The reaction from everyone was very positive and we worked in collaboration to come up with our company charters.
Since we have done the scheme we are communicating better throughout the company, monitoring and capturing key information and we are generally working better as a team.
The benefits thus far have been very positive and I expect that in the medium and long term we will benefit from an enhanced reputation, improved teamwork, which will translate into our bottom line.
All these benefits reinforce the positive impact that focussing on your customers can have.
Nic Stirk. Managing Director
"Engaging in the Service Excellence pilot scheme has made a huge difference to how we interact with our internal and external customers and I have no doubt that this will enhance our reputation and have a positive effect on our bottom line. Before the scheme we felt that we had a good customer service ethos but we wanted to validate our practices to ensure we were providing top class customer service. By formalising our processes and putting a plan in place, we have been able to align the company with the best practice advice that the centre for competitiveness has given us and show increased professionalism with our clients. I would highly recommend the scheme to other companies, as it has given us a fresh look at how we interact with customers and has ensured that we have processes in place for continuous improvement."
