About the course

It is essential to accurately measure what your customers want and to develop breakthrough strategies to serve their needs. How satisfied are your customers and how does your organization’s customer satisfaction level compare with that of your competitors? The heart of any organization can be found beating inside the walls of its customer service department. All the money that a company spends on sales training, marketing research, advertising, and PR initiatives to attract new customers is wasted if they can’t keep them satisfied after the sale. A satisfied customer’s positive “word-of-mouth” endorsement is by far your company’s greatest asset and most effective marketing strategy. Delegates will discover how to use a variety of statistical methods to collect and measure key indicators to identify service quality gaps to improve customer service satisfaction.

Customers have high expectations and demand quality customer service from companies they choose to do business with. Successful organizations understand the importance of developing a customer centric mindset and deliberately restructure their customer service model to increase customer satisfaction and brand loyalty. This advanced, 5-day training course gives delegates the best practices, communication skills, conflict resolution strategies, and customer satisfaction assessment tools they require to build a customer-centric organization.
