Measuring and Managing Customer Satisfaction ISO 9001 and Beyond
The Customer’s Experience is THE strategic battleground these days.
The internet and Social Media have reduced many industries to commodities to be easily compared and contrasted at the click of a mouse and traded across global borders. The ONE opportunity that these new technologies have not removed (indeed are encouraging) is the Customer Experience. Satisfied Customers are now the ONLY assurance of continuing success. Satisfying customers gives sales, profits (it is FIVE TIMES costlier to get a new customer than to keep an old one) and referrals. Customer Satisfaction is FAR too important to be left to chance and consequently, an International Standard, ISO 9001 has been drawn up to ensure consistent delivery of customer service.
This 5-day Oxford workshop gives you best practice implementation to devising and implementing robust systems to deliver, measure and monitor your enterprises’ performance in this most business-critical area.
