A new Cus­tomer Ser­vice Index (CSI) Study, con­duct­ed by J.D. Pow­er and Asso­ciates in the Phillip­ines, locates the source of the high­er sat­is­fac­tion rate at deal­er­ships there.

Keep read­ing to uncov­er the source of sat­is­fac­tion and apply it to your deal­er­ship.

New-vehi­cle own­ers in the Philip­pines this year put more impor­tance on per­son­al inter­ac­tion and hav­ing excep­tion­al ser­vice advi­sors as a first point of con­tact at the deal­er­ship, accord­ing to our 2013 Philip­pines Cus­tomer Ser­vice Index (CSI) Study.

The study, which mea­sures over­all cus­tomer ser­vice sat­is­fac­tion among more than 1,800 vehi­cle own­ers who vis­it­ed an autho­rized ser­vice cen­ter for main­te­nance or repair work dur­ing the first 12 to 24 months of own­er­ship, finds that over­all sat­is­fac­tion with ser­vice at autho­rized deal­er­ships improves by an aver­age of 4 points in 2013 to 832 (on a 1,000-point scale) vs. last year.

Study find­ings indi­cate that man­u­fac­tur­ers and deal­er­ships need to focus on com­mu­ni­ca­tion and soft skills, such as man­ag­ing cus­tomer expec­ta­tions, espe­cial­ly since among the five fac­tors* mea­sured in the study, the impor­tance weights of two fac­tors have risen from 2012: ser­vice advi­sor (to 22% from 13%) and ser­vice ini­ti­a­tion (to 19% from 13%).

Build­ing pos­i­tive rela­tion­ships with cus­tomers, sup­port­ed by the right peo­ple and process­es, may lead to high­er lev­els of ser­vice sat­is­fac­tion and the like­li­hood that cus­tomers will return to the deal­er­ship for post-war­ran­ty ser­vice.
