Elite Companies Excel by Using Customer Complaint Data to Drive Improvement in Service and Product Quality

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Oct. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Complaint resolution groups fulfill a key role not just in resolving customer complaints involving product and service issues, but also by capturing critical customer feedback from which to drive quality and continuous improvement in the supply chain and throughout the organization.

A recent Best Practices, LLC study, "Customer Complaint Resolution Excellence: Capturing Insights to Drive Business Improvements," will enable complaint resolution and quality leaders to assess how efficient and effective their complaint management organizations are in terms of handling complaints, reducing the volume and cost of service claims, and managing both key and problematic customer segments.

Sample key findings from this critical study include:

  • Most Companies Do Not Use Penalty Systems or Incentive Systems to Reduce Complaint Volume: Whether to provide superior service to key customers and accounts or to reduce the overall number of service claims filed, few companies employ a penalty system (12%) or an incentive system (20%).
  • Benchmark Companies Deny Only 21% of Customer Service Claims: Of these denied claims, study participants report an average denied claim recovery percentage of 51%. For companies currently recovering on less than half of the claims they deny, there exists a substantial portion "unrecovered" revenue on all of these denied claims. Increasing recovery percentage represents a valuable opportunity to significantly boost revenue.

This benchmarking study allows Customer Service, Supply Chain, Quality and Complaint Resolution executives and managers to see how best-in-class manufacturing companies manage their customer complaint and claim resolution systems to quickly resolve problems, win back customer loyalty -- and spot trends and insights that drive process improvements.

Key study topics include:

  • Complaint Resolution Groups: Structure, Roles & Responsibilities
  • Listening to Customer Complaints to Glean Improvement Insights
  • Service Claim Resolution Benchmarks
  • Programs for Reducing Complaint Volume
  • Complaint Process Automation & Analytics
  • Strategies for Driving Improvements via the Complaints Process
  • Lessons Learned: Turning Customer Complaints into Business Improvements
