World Class Service Accreditation



The benefits of achieving World Class Service Accreditation


We see the customer experience as a total solution, so in Manchester, for instance, we work with the airport, hotels and taxi companies to help drive standards.


Expect a lot of benefits for your hard work:

  • Better recruitment profile and people want to work with you.
  • Customer endorsement in a transparent world and on line rating systems have transformed how people are rating customer service
  • Increased customer spend and happy customers spend more
  • Increased frequency of visits
  • Lower long run marketing costs and word of mouth recommendation is the marketing channel of choice in the socially networked world.
  • Lower staff turnover and confident, professional staff stay longer
  • Less complaint handling and rework
  • Better destination reputation for your city
  • Better promotion prospects if the business is successful promotion opportunities are more likely
  • Improved customer loyalty
  • Better brand reputation and on line transparency challenge means we have to be consistently good at service
