THE ART OF PUTTING ITSELF TO CUSTOMER SERVICE
1. LEARN BY YOURSELF & CHALLENGE YOUR WAY OF DOING
Give sense and responsibility to each collaborator by connecting with our customer: "the one who pays us" and treating him as our best friend.
Being customer-oriented requires a long term strategy that should involve the whole factory, from top management to grassroots staff. It also means a change of mentality and an internal organisation that trains its sights on a new target: satisfying customer expectations. This will contribute to boost the image of the factory. Being customer oriented is to guaranty that your entity meets customers needs, problems & expectations. You may build collaborative relationships with them.
