Лучший сервис - это отсутствие сервиса. Как избавить клиента от необходимости в обслуживании и сэкономить деньги компании Спросите себя: чего хотят клиенты, проснувшись утром? Связаться с сервисным отделом компании или просто пользоваться ее продуктами и услугами? Ответ очевиден, не так ли? Безупречный, с точки зрения клиента, сервис незаметен - эта идея лежит в основе книги "Лучший сервис - это отсутствие сервиса. Как избавить клиента от необходимости в обслуживании и сэкономить деньги компании". Чтобы достичь подобного уровня сервиса, необходимо кардинально изменить поведение, стратегию и систему оценки. Усилия будут оправданы: результатом станет повышение уровня удовлетворенности не только клиентов, но и персонала, снижение эксплуатационных расходов и, как следствие, рост прибыли. Авторы полностью меняют традиционный взгляд на культуру обслуживания, предлагают конкретные инструменты и методы. Книга будет интересна руководителям компаний, специалистам по продажам, а также всем сотрудникам отделов по обслуживанию клиентов.
