Many organizations, especially in Kenya, tend to look down on their customer service departments so much that when they want to down-size, they start with their customer service officers.
These organizations assume that all the customer needs is to get the services or goods and to pay for them. This couldn't be further from the truth.
Today's customer needs more than just a service or a product. He/She is well informed and has high expectations. Corporates that meet these expectations usually enjoy the fruits of return customers and increased revenues.
