Does Your Service Menu Meet Your Customers’ Expectations?
Menus can tell you a lot about a restaurant. Some menus have limited choices; some have way too many. Many have rules like “no substitutions,” “salad bar extra,” or “breakfast only served until 10:30 am.” Some show you pictures of their featured meals; some have crazy...

read a Client Case Study Success. We are a member of The CHIP BELL Group
with affiliates in several major cities, which enables us to marshal the best
customer service experts to focus on the unique requirements of a particular
client. We pride ourselves in modeling the practices and standards we
recommend to our clients. We have far ranging experience consulting for
large public and private corporations to smaller companies. Clients range
from technology and hospitality to insurance, healthcare, utilities, banking and
business services. We also consult with nonprofit organizations.
The efforts of any consulting firm are
guided by a set of beliefs and values. Progressive Insights is dedicated to providing
clients with a pragmatic means of dramatically impacting customer perceptions through
service that is distinctively delivered. Our purpose is to help organizations become
famous in the eyes of their customers, not just for the technical support they provide,
but also for the complete service experience.
We help our clients choose a clear,
consistent service focus and strategy which is tightly aligned with what their
customers value and perceive as distinctive. We help clients see their organization
and service delivery systems through clients' eyes. We assist in providing tools,
techniques and methodology aimed at keeping an organization in harmony with their
customers' changing needs and expectations. We support our clients by providing customer,
organizational and employee research, as well as training in effective service management
and leadership. Our focus is on helping service executives; managers, supervisors, and
customer service specialists better understand their role and responsibility in making
distinctive service quality a central focus.
Progressive Insights works with a limited
number of clients so that we can provide high quality consultation, rather than "hit
and run" help. Practicing what we preach is critical. We maintain a small, highly
skilled professional staff and partner with a large cadre of professional consultants who
possess unique specialties. This allows us to assemble a consulting team uniquely tailored
to the specific needs and requirements of a given prospect or client.
Our work is predicated upon the belief that
the successful companies are those whose plans and practices remain perpetually grounded
in responsiveness to the customer. Superior service implies confident deference to
customer requirements balanced by a responsibility to the shareholders and stakeholders of
the organization. All our efforts must pass the ROI test and be judged in terms of their
long-term impact on success in the marketplace.
We seek to create client independence - our
involvement is always aimed at being a temporary one. Therefore, we work to build internal
strengths and to leave clients able to perpetuate what is begun as well as appropriately
replicate our efforts in the future.
As you will learn our work takes four
forms: management consulting, workshop or seminar development and facilitation, speaking
engagements and real estate project management.
