Service Excellence

How well are you organised to provide excellent service to your customers?

  • Do you know what they actually want from you?
  • Do you know how well you deliver the service?
  • Are your employees empowered and able to deliver the service?
  • How can you attract and retain the right customers?
  • Are you clear about the way you conduct business?
  • Can you adapt to changing circumstances?

These questions are at the heart of the assessment process used in judging the Sunday Times UK Customer Experience Awards (previously known as the Unisys/Management Today Service Excellence Awards) that have been conducted annually since 1996. In that time more than 1,000 UK organisations have been assessed and have contributed to the repository of service excellence best practise.

Based on a number of years of experience on the judging panel, we can now offer a focussed assessment service that builds upon the awards process.

Having agreed objectives we will conduct an assessment of your organisation using the Service Excellence Model to assess five key areas of focus:

  • Customer Intelligence
  • Operational Effectiveness
  • Engaging People
  • Leadership & Values
  • Organisational Agility

Assessment will be performed using a combination of methods including questionnaires, mystery shopping and direct interview/observation.

The final presentation and report will draw on comparisons to best practice and, where necessary, recommend actions to achieve service improvement.
