An HD Picture of Your Customer Experience

What gets measured gets accomplished.

There is a lot of focus on customer reviews and social media posts today. In fact, many businesses are almost completely reliant on online reviews and star ratings as the measure of their reputation. They often believe that these customer reviews are all searchers need to get a complete picture of their offerings and experiences.

But even in the Digital Age, these methods for gathering, sharing, and responding to word of mouth don’t really tell the whole story. There is some information that can only be collected using first-hand data collection methods. That’s why Mystery Shopping is a necessary tool for any business serious about reputation. It provides a unique view of the experience from a customer’s point of view, allowing you to assess the experience against your standards and expectations – are you measuring up?

Mystery Shopping provides you with quality control for the customer experience. We use trained mystery shoppers to look at the entire customer journey and guest experience from an objective standpoint based on your standards and expectations. This provides you with visibility into your customer’s experience that can uncover things like roadblocks to customer satisfaction, the effectiveness of training programs, and how well marketing programs are being discussed with customers.
