What our client’s customers thought of the CRA process.

At the end of the interview we ask our clients’ customers what they thought of the interview. Their responses are very insightful and are listed below. This list is from four surveys, it is sorted alphabetically, unedited, and complete with good and bad statements about us and our process. Names have been removed to protect our clients. As you can see the majority of our clients customers support the process and hope their supplier (our client) will listen and act on their feedback.

  • A good exercise
  • A good idea – an excellent way to check service levels
  • A good idea for companies to do this with their customers
  • A good idea, hope my suppliers read it and do something about it
  • A unique outlook for a survey whereby they should be able to see if problems are unique or if there are trends
  • A very good idea as there is no better way of conveying what we have done now to the rep when he visits
  • Admire the fact you have gone to the trouble to do this but the MD could have come and asked these questions and I would have told him
  • Always good to get input

  • By doing surveys like this, problems can be identified and services and products fine tuned
  • Can’t do any harm to do this
  • Comfortable with it
  • Creates awareness of what the perceptions of their customers are. They should take advice we, the customers give and take advantage of opportunities suggested.

  • If you want honest answers this is the way to get them
  • Interesting to see that they are doing this now

  • Something that has never happened to me before. It gives me an idea someone is trying to do things right. Think it is wonderful
  • The fact that they are doing this survey shows that they have concerns in their business. Someone from management should have come here long ago and I would have told them the same things I have told you.
