Customer Care: Delivering the Wow Factor

customer_care_large_200Where would you go for the best customer service in the world? Until recently, there was only one answer to this question: Japan! The Japanese, a country with no natural resources of their own, except for their people, were the undisputed leaders in service, quality and customer care. There were two reasons for this. One was Ichiban meaning "a desire to be the best". And the other was Kaizen, meaning "never-ending improvement". Put together, Ichiban and Kaizen make an unstoppable force. When everyone has them in a business, the WOW! factor goes through the roof. Customers come back to you again and again. They'll even come back to you for things you don't sell, just for the experience of great service. And the simplest way to deliver Ichiban and Kaizen is to train your team in great customer care.
