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.
