Have you experienced the pain a customer would feel on getting delayed services? The frustration when the customer executives say "It will still take time, ma'm" and your customer returns home agitated?
In business, keeping the existing customers happy is equally important to getting the new customers in. So when you keep the front door open for the new customers, it is also essential not to loose customers from the back door. Else, howsoever aggressive your marketing activities be, if your present customers aren't happy with the after-sales support, there is no point winning new customers. So remember, "Winning trust" and "Providing Best Customer Support" is more important! Whatever the product, a certain percentage of all of them is likely to be returned for repair. While some products experience the aftermath of wear and tear, some may just die down during the warranty period. It is apparent that customers would want all the utility products to be repaired as soon as possible. Hence manufacturers pay superior attention to repair and deliver the products in minimum turn-around-time. So how would you ensure that the repair cycle is on track or it seeks improvement?
