Princes Risborough, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 18, 2009 -- As a result of the worldwide economic downturn it is vitally important that business maintain a very high standard of customer service care. If the customers are not being looked after properly, then they will be lost, whereas with proper customer service there will be repeat business.
Philip Suter of JML Training and Consultancy said" Last week I had to sort out a problem with some audio visual equipment we use as part of our training programmes. I had to visit tow retailers. One is a large UK electrical retailer and the other is a company selling own brand Japanese merchandise.
In both of these establishments I experienced a very high calibre of customer service, with sales assistants taking a lot of time trying to solve the problem I had with equipment and not pushing for a new sale. The end result was that I had to go back to one of the two retailers again a day later to buy a new product and again because of some technical problems setting it up, the sales assistant taking plenty of time to explain how to connect it up and make it work as it should"
In both cases those companies have trained their staff well. It means people will return there again and again. However the market is getting much harder and in many cases there is no second chance.
JML Training and Consultancy have designed in-house Customer Service Courses.
