Just like any couple, the company has to build and maintain good relationship with its customers through the customer experience. More than 50% of that experience depends on how the customer feels they are being treated (McKinsey).
The management consultant firm – Bain & Company did a survey towards 362 companies in 2005. The result came out interesting. About 80% of the companies claimed that they deliver “superior” customer service. Meanwhile, speaking from the customer’s perspective, there were only 8% of the customers think that the same companies really deliver “superior” customer service.
This fact tells you that the company oftentimes misreads the market because they don’t truly understand the customers. To do so (understanding your customers accurately), companies have to conduct an evaluation from the customer’s perspective. Unfortunately, this evaluation isn’t an easy thing to do without proper knowledge and experience.
In this case, Evaluate Indonesia comes to support any company to do it good and right. As a professional company with more than 8-years experience, we offer the Mystery Shopping as our superior method. This method specifically has 5 focus services, where the Customer Experience Evaluation is one of them.
In this service, the mystery shopping will focus on the holistic observation and evaluation towards our client’s customer service performance. Our main goal is to discover the quality of the companies’ customer service on its true nature.
The evaluation process consists of some steps. First, Evaluate will ask the company to reassure their specific goals, in correlation to the customer experience. Based on that step, we will discover what indicators we need to put attention to, in this evaluation. Next, this process will continue in the making of the mystery shopping scenario.
While doing the visit, a mystery shopper is directed to focus on giving their objective evaluation towards their experience, based on the existing questionnaire. Some things to be carefully noticed, such as: how do the staffs treat the customers? how good are the staffs on dealing with customers and responding the request? are the staffs being helpful? and how well are the staffs manage to comply their task as the responsibility?
The mystery shopping is not just based on buying experience on the store. It also can be conducted towards the buying experience via online channel, the complaint experience, competitor observation, etc.
After the visit, the shopper will give their valuation in the form of report draft, as it based on their visit experience. Afterwards, Evaluate will validate the data from that draft and later process the information carefully into an evaluation report for the client.
The findings as mentioned on the evaluation report are the valuable information, which client can use to judge (1) whether the service already met the company’s term and condition or not, (2) is the customer service strategy succeed or failed, also (3) identify the plus and minus of the strategy implementation.
One thing for sure, the evaluation result will be very useful for the client to understanding the customers’ heart. With this asset, client can personally decide the right direction for its company to reach the best-quality customer.
