This course aims to provide the skills needed to achieve a strong customer focus, by identifying and analysing customers, so that a positive relationship can be developed. The implementation and management of these skills is established, through examining the principles of quality customer service. This, in turn, will highlight the link between customer service and quality customer relations – the essentials of a competitive advantage.
