How we help

In today’s competitive environment, retail stores and operators have two primary objectives:

  • Enhancing customer satisfaction
  • Boosting revenues

To achieve these it is critical to engage and communicate with customers, understand their likes and dislikes, identify and act on problems and listen to their needs and wants. Providing a great experience not only leads to satisfaction but also to loyalty and advocacy. Customers will spend more, visit over and over again and influence their friends via social media and word-of-mouth. This all helps to generate additional revenues and meet business objectives.

As a retail operator you want customers to tell you first about any problems and give you the opportunity to address any issues, before posting negative reviews on Twitter, Yelp, Trip Advisor or any other social media or blog site. To do so you need to provide a closed, simple and quick in-the-moment feedback channel for customers to report problems and then alert designated staff immediately so they can take actions to address customer concerns and turn a poor experience into a positive outcome.

It is equally important to inspect all retail units on a regular basis to ensure they are operating in terms of contractual requirements and that staff are complying with standards and procedures. This can be done using a mystery shopping program or an inspector based monitoring process to obtain in-depth feedback about unit performance relating to staff, service, products, cleanliness and other key factors.
