Introduction

Developing Customer Service: Task 4 1. A business needs to monitor and evaluate their customer service.

Staff should also be presentable and always available to help a customer. They would be more willing to approach and may have a better opinion of the business. This can be evaluated by doing a secret observation. This can be done by CCTV or a mystery shopper. The customers also need to be getting their value for money.
