Turning Customer Service Inside Out

How Your Company's Internal Customer Service
Affects External Customers

While attention is rightly focused on delivering quality customer service to external customers, how effective is your internal customer service? Are you treating other departments with as much attentiveness, courtesy and understanding as you accord your external customers?

Research has shown that when internal customer service — teamwork and effective communication — is lacking, external customers suffer. The correlation is clear. Exemplary external customer service derives from the inside.

Developing a customer service orientation within your company can not only pay dividends with external customers, but also improve efficiency, build teamwork and promote understanding within your organization. Isn't it time you tuned up your internal customer service?
