From the Author:

This book presents the Customer Service Management Model, a dynamic mechanism developed to evaluate the interactions present in the customer service environment. This model considers several interactions:* The balance between customer's service level expectation and the level of service actually hired from a given supplier* The correlation that compares the customer's expectation in relation to the level of service that is to be delivered and the perception about the actual service level* The difference between the official contracted level of service and the process performance actually delivered to the customersTo translate customer needs into a customer-centric business, it is necessary for the relationships between supplier and customer to have the maturity to promote change management and to review the balance of the following forces: product, customer, service and process. Customer-centric strategies offer the best solution based on personalized packages of products, service, support, education, and consulting.Through people it is possible to manage knowledge, triggering the virtuous cycle that creates and sustains the value-added innovative environment that leads the business to its ultimate goal: delivering value to the shareholder. The balance between operational activities and strategic influence represents an organizational challenge because it requires people diversity within a small group of people.The customer service department tends to have few thinkers and innumerable operators. To address this reality, the authors present the Customer Service Balanced Organization Model (CSBO Model), which is basically founded on two pillars: an order-management celland a compliance cell.
