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.

Chrysler: The Life and Times of an Automotive Genius (Automotive History and Personalities) Here is a richly detailed account of one of the most important men in American automotive history, based on full access to both Chrysler Corporation and Chrysler family historical records. Chrysler emerges as a man who loved machines, an accomplished mechanic who also had highly developed managerial skills derived from half a lifetime on the railroads, a man whose success came from his deep understanding of engineering and his total commitment to the quality of his vehicles.

Chrysler was quite different from the other auto giants--a colorful and expansive man, deeply involved in the design of his cars, a maverick in establishing his headquarters in New...
