My wife and I have been traveling to San Francisco every May for the past several years to run in the Bay to Breakers 12K cross-city race. We always stay at a downtown hotel, and never rent a car since hotels charge $50 – $60 per day for parking, and street parking is virtually non-existent. This generally works out well for us, but it does limit us to staying in a certain section of the city or the alternatives of combersome public transportation or expensive taxi cabs to branch out further. For this trip, we planned to make use of DriveNow, a premium carsharing service provided by BMW. In Europe, DriveNow is a Joint Venture between BMW and Sixt. This would be my first chance to try DriveNow as a customer. I signed up for the service in advance at their website us.drive-now.com, and within a couple of weeks my membership card arrived. I also downloaded the DriveNow App for my iPhone.
It seems companies cannot say enough about the importance of good quality customer service.. Here at Sixt rent a car, we have a tool to help monitor our customer’s perception and satisfaction with Sixt.
This tool is called our Customer Service Index tool, or CSI. After all, we have been around since 1912 and know a thing or two when it comes to customer service. On occasion our customers let us know areas that Sixt could improve upon. We have a team dedicated to customer service and anytime we receive a complaint our team jumps into action with more than just generic letters of an apology. However, they are not the first team to tackle negative feedback. Our branch managers are expected to come face to face with our customers and we expect them to listen and dedicate their time daily, so our customer’s can feel a sense of relief right away if they are upset.
Here at Sixt, the motto is, “The Customer is Boss” and we strive to make all of our customers happy every day.
We focus on keeping this index at the highest level and sometimes miss opportunities to shine. Our branch managers hear this weekly if not daily or anytime we see a drop in our CSI. For this reason we become complacent and don’t focus as we should on our front end with each customer every time. Read all about: Steven, We Listen..
