Keeping Customers Happy I have been asked in this assignment to write a report about Asda and also about the different laws, which help the consumers and how to make customers happy. In my full report these are the criteria's, which will be included: � The different types of customers at Asda � How good customer service can affect a business performance � What services to Asda provide to the customers � The protection of customers receive by law and sources of information Section 1: A01 In this section I will be explaining the following: We can identify customers of a range of different categories we can do it on race, age colour, culture, special needs, kids, careers, etc. � The different variety of customers at Asda There are a wide variety of customers, who needs or wants a particular product or service. Asda has different types of customers, including: * External customers: Individuals (such as your self) or visitors are very important for ASDA because they have to cater to as many individuals as possible. This is done by making a wide selection of products and extra facilities'. * Other business organizations such as Tesco, Sainsbury etc * Different ethnic groups like: Asians, Afro Caribbean, and White etc * Different cultures such as: Muslims, Sikhs, Indians, Jews, Chinese, Hindus and Buddhist etc * Non-English speakers, Special disabled people like Wheel chair, pensioners blind etc * From different cultures you have got different catering market such as: � Halal food for Muslims this means that they can only eat meat which has been specially cut by a Muslim person. � Same as Muslims, they only eat Halal due to their religion they do not eat any meat products. * Young boys and girls age from 2-4, 5-8, 9-11, 12-14, and 15-17, there is a specific section targeted for each age group e.g. baby section * Business men and woman, this type of customer will usually come at lunch time to buy a sandwich or drink. ...read more.


the product either front or back about vegetarians or calories etc � Communicate with customers calmly Things in which the three businesses do different are: � Sainsbury visit customers at home and ask them about the products to find out how the products are performing in terms of quality and price. Then this information will be passed on to ensure that there products are right for the customers � Tesco organizes and run over 1600 customer questions where customers are invited to come and talk to their local store management team about their shopping likes and dislikes � Asda offer a policy called the 'ten foot rule' this is whenever a member of staff comes within ten feet of a customer they must greet them and ask for any assistance After comparing the three businesses Asda, Sainsbury and Tesco you can see the majority of services are the same with having these services the business is more likely to benefit from more repeat business and also an edge over competitors. So if Asda carries on good customer their performance will dramatically increase their profits and their will be more satisfied customers. Section 2: AO3 In this section I will produce a guidance report of how customers can be protected and the different organization, which customers can go to receive advice. I will be explaining the following laws: � Sale of goods Act � Trades Description Act � Weights and Measures Act � Food and drug Act � Food and safety Act � Consumer protection Act � Consumer Credit Act Consumer protection describes various laws, which are designed to protect consumers from unfair and bad business practises. Some of the legislations deal with the consumer's safety; other laws attempt to protect the consumer from exploitation by strong or unethical firms.
