It is a dilemma for all Centre Management, that the success of a Shopping Centre is contained in the hands of so many Retail Managers!
Each Manager and their respective companies maintain their own philosohpies regarding customer service - some excellent, some less so!
The challenge for Centre Management is to encourage all these participants to become members of the 'Centre Team' ensuring excellence in customer service and guarenteed footfall for everybody.
Retail Maxim's activites are centred on 2 core activities:
Mystery Visits - which monitor customer service in all units. The philosophy is carried forward through recognition and reward schemes.
Exit Surveys & Targeted Store Surveys - consult 'real' customers who have either bought or not, with a focused questionnaire to discover their views.
We have been working with Retail Maxim for 4 years to carry out intercept surveys across our portfolio of shopping centres. We have found them to be both extremely effective and efficient but also great value for money. The insights we gain from their bespoke surveys and accompanying analysis provides an unparalleled understanding of our visitors. Equally, the team are a pleasure to work with and we look forward to our continued collaboration with them.
Retail Maxim were extremely easy to deal with, guiding us through the process of undertaking Exit Surveys at our Retail Park and within the local town centre. The surveys were tailored to our specific requirements with the project being turned around quickly. Great service and insight was provided and all for a very competitive price.
