Retail Excellence - Customer interaction

Author: Catalyst Education

In retail, customer satisfaction is determined by how well a customer's needs have been met before, during and after any sales or service interaction. Providing a level of customer service that exceeds a customer's expectations should be the objective of each interaction that you have. This can be achieved by using a standardised process that follows a series of logical steps designed to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of every customer interaction. By the end of this Catalyst courses, your staff should be able to:

  • Identify and explain the steps of an effective customer interaction,
  • Describe the benefits of applying a standardised process to customer interactions
  • List the differences between a good customer interaction and a poor one.
