Customer Service Innovations

Haste’s are proud of the consistent standards of excellent customer care that is at the heart of every service it provides.

Haste reputation has been built on past and continued excellence, and is renowned throughout the industry for the levels of customer care provided. This is recognised and aptly demonstrated by various customer service awards that have been presented to Haste.

Customer service innovation award – June 2014

This month Haste has started a new initiative to further enhance our levels of customer service.

The initiative, known as ‘Cuddle Calls’, entails that every customer visited by appointment is subsequently called at the point our engineer is leaving site, to ensure that the service provided met with their expectations and in order to capture any outstanding issues that remain. This initiative has a two-fold positive driving force on the service we provide.

Firstly it enables the customer to openly criticise any aspect of the service, which in turn drives continuous improvement of the service.

Secondly it enables any outstanding issue to be actioned with immediate effect and reduces time delays to job completion. Since the initiative began 4 weeks ago we have seen an improvement in our turnaround times, and we have enjoyed 100% positive customer comments, see extracts below –

Just spoke to Mrs HXXXX at HXXXX (Lock Island).
They said Chris was most helpful and very pleasant when he visited today. She told me that they have managed to clear up their outstanding issues and she has a receipt that she will be forwarding to us for lamps she has purchased.
