Do you know the cost of complaints on your business?
Citizen’s advice monitors consumer complaint trends. Over the last 12 months to September 2020, they dealt with over 32,000 issues and complaints relating to the home improvement sector (the second highest sector complained about).
The potential costs of complaints and mishandling of complainants is huge:
- Bad customer service costs firms over £37bn annually.
- Over 92% of dissatisfied customers do not complain and will just leave.
- Unhappy customers influence on average around x24 others whether verbally or on reviews and social media, which can not only impact your reputation, but increase your customer acquisition costs.
Calculate the cost of complaints on your business
Do you know the true impact of complaints on your business? QASSS have produced a handy calculator where you can input your business figures to calculate how many customers and associated revenue and margin you could be losing due to the mismanagement of complaints.
We have worked with QASSS now for sometime and they have consistently proven themselves to be a highly professional service when liaising with our clients. We would certainly recommend QASSS to any installer / large scale sales organisation who is looking to add a touch of professionalism and finesse to their business.
Special thanks to Tracy, Laura & Alan for all their hard work!
I would just like to say how well Tracey has dealt with our complaint, she has been so helpful, and friendly and has kept us very informed at all times.
She is a real asset to the company.
Having QASSS working alongside our head office team will have a huge impact on the customer services department. Laura and the team have been fantastic in helping with the transition and ensuring they are familiar with our working procedures, protocols and, of course, our products. Welcome to the EEC team.
QASSS have provided an invaluable service to not just ourselves but to our consumers, which has helped to resolve issues very quickly which otherwise could have been long, protracted and incurring unnecessary costs for both parties. Thank you for the continued support you provide us.
We continue to use the QASSS relationship to enhance our customer experience. We are now working with QASSS to handle customer resolutions more seamlessly, using their complaint handling expertise to resolve complaints fairly and quickly and ensure corrective actions are implemented.
On many occasions in the past your service has provided invaluable assistance to resolve even the most difficult complaints by taking a common-sense approach and a determination to establish the facts. Thank you for everything that you do, and long may your service continue.
As a company we have only required mediation a small amount of times since becoming a member and found that they have a very fair, independent approach to this, not siding with either the customer or the company; just direct mediation, without emotion, drawing the line based on facts of the contractual agreement. All in all, it has given our customers the confidence to spend more money and given us as a company more confidence to engage with larger contracts, knowing we have the independent service sitting between both parties.
Their assistance was highly efficient, professional and, conducted throughout in an exemplary manner from inception to conclusion. My sincerest thanks to everyone involved.
The benefit from a business point of view is the impartial focus given by the officer that interacts with both parties, normally we as the supplier have exhausted all avenues to bring the situation to a satisfactory end, the input and advice given can be hard to swallow but is normally fair and reasonable and will be accepted by both parties prior to any outcome being finalised.
The individual managers and DRO’s have an in-depth knowledge of not only consumer law and regulations, but the industries they serve as well. I have always found their involvement thorough, professional and innately fair.
