Congrats to Customer Service Leaders: USAA and Chick-fil-A

Since today is the final day of Customer Service Week, I want to give a shout out to the leaders in the 2015 Temkin Customer Service Ratings: USAA, Chick-fil-A, credit unions, Aldi, Trader Joe’s, Publix, Panera Bread, and H-E-B. Here are the top and bottom scoring organizations.

As you can see in this portion of our recent infographic, customer service plays a hugely valuable role in recovering after a bad experience.

Also, since we just celebrated Customer Experience Day, I want to include a quote from Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos that explains how CX and CS relate to each other:

Internally, customer service is a component of customer experience. Customer experience includes having the lowest price, having the fastest delivery, having it reliable enough so that you don’t need to contact [anyone]. Then you save customer service for those truly unusual situations. You know, I got my book and it’s missing pages 47 through 58

The bottom line: Happy Customer Service Week!
