Strategic Versatility

Channel Integration

Many of today's businesses have a presence in more than one medium, but focus their resources and efforts in customer management in one direction. While most market research vendors are limited to data collection in one area or another, National Shopping Service can design a strategy that takes all of these channels into account, covering all of your "people".

Maintaining and increasing customer loyalty is a complex process that requires the intricate choreography of a number of varying strategies specifically tailored to each individual communication medium. Using covert quantitative personal reporting, digitally enhanced visual and audio assessments, interviewing, as well as custom browsers for tracking online behavior, NSS is capable of analyzing and assimilating data in order to give management the ability to see important trends and patterns cutting across more than one customer contact point. To truly leverage the opportunities for improvement that exist in your organization, management must be able to combine diagnostic tools from more than one marketing paradigm.

Typical Interactive Customer "Touch-Points":
These are the critical windows of experience that a customer uses to judge their satisfaction with a brand and its representatives...

  1. In-Person
  2. Phone
  3. Online

We allow you to monitor any or all of these touch points for performance indicators and thresholds that your company values. Integration of multiple solutions allows management to consult ONE information portal for real-time statistics on their current customer and employee feedback statistics.

Leverage existing customer data...
Online, integrated customer experience management provides the ultimate flexibility and power in analyzing your performance levels. These solutions can also be integrated with existing customer relationship management data collected internally by your company. That means we can leverage your existing customer service investments by incorporating data and other resources from legacy customer support systems into your current NSS solution.
