In the world of customer service – the actual quality of the service you deliver means nothing if not for your customer’s perception of it. From their purchase behavior, to the memories and emotions they associate with your brand, the quickest way to gain a loyal follower is to make them feel as though your services are meaningful and personal. Do they feel like you understood their needs? Did your team go out of their way to provide a personal experience? Here’s a tip: one of the quickest ways to answer these questions is to ask the customer directly for personal feedback.

SMS Valet knows how important it is to communicate directly with customers – which is why it offers the option of including simple guest surveys after each valet experience. Not only is the information your customers provide valuable to the valet management but also to the property owner where they operate.
