Introduction

BTEC First Diploma in Business Unit 2 Developing Customer Relations Introduction: In this assignment I will describe how customer service can be monitored and evaluated and I will also explain how monitoring and evaluating can improve customer service for the customer, the organisation and the employee and then I will analyse, with examples, how effective customer service benefits the customer, the organisation and the employee.
