“5 Keys to Growing Your Business With Customer Experience”

86% of customers say they will pay more for a better customer experience

In today’s hyper-competitive business environment, you need strong differentiation in the engineering space to stand out. It’s no longer feasible to compete on price alone— or even the features of your products or services.

Savvy business owners and CEO’s are realizing that providing a consistent “above and beyond” experience for your customers essentially does 3 things:

1. Engages employees internally. And the more engaged your employees are internally, the better the experience for customers externally.

2. Increases customer loyalty. A natural by-product of exceeding customer expectations consistently is their loyalty. This makes retaining current customers much easier and an easy sell for new customer acquisition.

3. Higher Revenue. The end result of improved customer experience is a better overall bottom line.

It Starts With Your Organization’s Culture…

A dysfunctional or un-cohesive culture is the single greatest barrier to an organization’s effort to provide a truly great, world-class customer experience. Many of our clients are initially stuck in a ‘customer SERVICE’ mindset. When we can prove that making the leap to considering every touch point in the end-to-end customer experience, medium-sized companies increase profits and retain great talent.

CES helps organizations transform their service delivery by creating a culture of excellence and accountability throughout all levels and departments of the organization.

Technical audiences and engineering-based businesses alike are looking for new services and products to help them solve their biggest challenges. Attract more engineering consulting clients and ensure your marketing efforts are effective through educational initiatives for ALL of your people from the leadership team to front line supervisors and foremen.

We do this both in-person and/or virtually, to improve customer satisfaction through employee engagement, personalized coaching and consulting and high-energy, real-time webinars. It’s a one-year customer experience journey. Are you willing to make the leap?

We help you gain clarity on who you want to serve, how to get your internal customers more engaged at what they do and instilling a culture of “WOW experiences every time.

62% of engineering clients don’t feel like they get service excellence from interactions ‘after the sale’ in dealing with a firm’s frontline professionals (Emplify 2022)
