The following situations are common to the customers of many organizations.
We need to know how our customers really feel about our company, our products
and our services.
Our products are very good, but we just don’t attract new customers.
We know that our customers are not always pleased with the support service we
provide, but we don’t know what to do to improve things.
Here is an example of how Booth Associates can help:
An Example of Finding What the Customer Really Wants
The following is an example of how Booth Associates can help your company save
money and better satisfy your customers at the same time.
A small bank was feeling the pressure of competition from larger banks in the
area. Their customer base had been slowly shrinking over the past several years
as competing banks introduced new products and services. The bank had tried to
keep up, adding 15 new ATM locations and keeping all of their branches open on
Saturdays. Despite the additional services, the loss of customers was painful
evidence that they were not giving their customers what they really wanted. A
study of current, former, and potential customers showed what services were
wanted and how great the demand was for them. For example, the study revealed
that while customers liked the ATM’s, the need centered around having ATM’s at
certain key locations and that four of the added ATM locations were
unnecessary. It was also shown that the customers that most wanted Saturday
banking hours were businesses located downtown and that it would be possible to
close all branches on Saturday except for the downtown branch and still satisfy
most of the customers. Perhaps the greatest discovery was the unanticipated
demand for Internet banking. The bank found that by developing an Internet
banking system, it could attract many more customers and it would ultimately be
an extremely valuable investment. Through a scientific study of its customers,
the bank was able to cut costs, provide better services, increase its customer
base, and keep those customers satisfied and loyal.
