Beyond Satisfaction: Creating Customer Happiness


Positive Customer Experiences drive Positive Word of Mouth advertising, increased referrals and happier customers and employees – all of which lead to more profit. Positive Customer Experiences are the result of a “value chain” inside the organization that engages and involves everyone in taking care of customers (internally or externally.) Companies that thrive constantly seek to create value and happiness for all stakeholders.
