Service Effectiveness Monitor (SEM)
What is it: A strategic diagnostic tool that assesses, measures, and monitors the effectiveness of your company’s service personnel, quality of service and process, and how they may affect your brand performance and bottom line.
How does it work: Compares individual sales/service personnel performance; your company’s relative performance opposite similar organizations; and identifies specific strengths and weaknesses in service provision, product offering and process. It also establishes a benchmark (performance indicators) against which future performance may be measured.
Who can benefit: B2B or B2C. Companies whose business depends largely on a face-to-face or telephone contact with its customers/clients, whether in a sales or service capacity. These include banks and financial institutions, insurance agencies, chain stores, department stores, HVAC sales and service, airlines, etc.

- Customer retention
