See Your Business As Your Customers See You!

Our Mystery Customer Programs allow you to see your company's service levels through the eyes of your customers. The research from our mystery shopping can help you evaluate your service levels more critically so that you can improve them.

Our specially trained mystery customers will pay regular visits to your business posing as customers, performing independent, objective inspection of your business's facilities and service standards.  You can then evaluate these inspection results and check your customer experience and compare your business’s performance against your last visit or against your competitors.

Without "pointing the finger" it will allow you to uncover poor employee performance and allow you to reshape that performance in a cost-effective manner. In the process you will discover how to identify and correct organizational weaknesses and act upon them.  You can use this powerful feedback tool to re-measure for organizational improvement to give you the much needed competitive advantage over competitors. Additionally, your mystery customer feedback will allow you to identify and reward superior employee performance.

Today, Mystery Customer Programs in the region are common in service industries such as fast food franchises, hotels and airlines as a staff training and performance appraisal tool. They are becoming increasingly important in market research where service is a key part of the brand image and where understanding "customer experience" is central to understanding customers’ needs and preferences.

Benefits of Mystery Shopping

It’s about Customer Relationship Management
Research tells us that a satisfied customer will tell an average of 5 people about their positive experiences. On the other hand, a dissatisfied customer will tell an average of 10 other people about their bad experiences. There is no doubt that better service from a well-conceived customer relationship management program can help you increase market share and profits.

Customer relationship management is about good customer service and understanding how to retain customers.  A company that can identify and correct its customer service weaknesses will definitely have a competitive advantage over its competitors.  When you are continually improving customer loyalty, you are infact assuring yourself more sales.  Mystery Shopping Program (MSP) is the most cost-effective method of measuring customer service and is often considered the lynchpin of modern customer relationship management. Research has shown that one can reduce the need for administrative overhead with valuable information provided from mystery shoppers.  Our Mystery Shopping Program is a proven cost-effective tool for gathering information about the actual customer service experience so you can develop a successful customer relationship management program for your company.

It is strange but true that employees will do what you inspect rather than what you expect.  Also, monitoring your sales efforts through a Mystery Shopping Program will provide coaching information as well as help you identify training needs.  It can help you save training dollars by identifying specific training needs.

Our Mystery Shopping Program systematically measures a pattern of strengths and weaknesses in service delivery and can help you develop an effective customer relationship management program. We have a proven record in providing:

  • baseline studies – comparisons with your competitors
  • incentive programs -  assessments of your location manager 
  • training needs assessments - recommendations for service improvements

Our Shopper Preparation

Shoppers prepare in advance for their mystery shopping assignments by reviewing detailed specifications about your needs. The custom-designed mystery shopping form addresses those issues that are particularly important to you in a format that is easy to understand.  Armed with this information, mystery shoppers will visit your locations. Simulating what would be a normal customer experience, these mystery shoppers pay careful attention to every detail of the visit: from the cleanliness of your establishment to the friendliness of your employees, their sales ability - even their ability to verbalize clear-cut product knowledge of your products or services.

Your Mystery Shopping Report
After the visit, each mystery shopper completes the mystery shopping form online. This information - which will include detailed comments about the visit - will enable you to get a firsthand "bird's eye view" of how your customers are being served.

Our Quality Assurance Guarantee
Before mystery shopping reports are transmitted to you, each one is carefully reviewed by an executive assigned to your account to ensure that the shopper has addressed all the issues important to you.  Once we have confirmed the information to be correct, the original mystery report is sent to you. This transmission is done on-line. If you require an analysis of their findings, we are able to compile these on a regular basis for an additional research reporting fee.
