That's Entertainment

Since we started with Retail Maxim the service scores that we have achieved are improving across the chain wave on wave. The Retail Maxim mystery shopping programme has assisted us in improving our customer service ensuring all of our customer's receive the shopping experience they deserve.


This is a short note to thank Robert and the team for all their support with our Online Customer Satisfaction Survey. The programme we now have in place is extremely user friendly, simple to digest and very economical in terms of our budget. The rolled up monthly reporting is particularly useful in helping us to use the measure as a KPI within our business.

Vital Ingredient

The service Retail Maxim has provided us has been really effective and excellent value for money. We have benefited from your expertise in retail metrics and monitoring 'service levels' and 'experience', which have now been integrated into our company KPIs.
