Mystery Shopping Research

When it comes to understanding company performance, using mystery shopping research is a hugely powerful customer service tool which allows companies to see beyond traditional customer survey results.

Mystery shopping research provides clients with the ability to view the business objectively by asking non-subjective customer service questions. This allows us to focus on the process rather than an emotive view of how a customer feels after interacting with a service or product.

Our research can be conducted by choosing a number of mystery shopping research approaches and includes reporting for physical retail locations, call centre environments and online services.

The detailed research we conduct helps companies to understand at a granular level where customer service delivery differs from anticipated standards. This can be particularly relevant when a business rolls out a new sales process or sets out new customer service standards that take time for staff to adapt to.

Using this type of research measurement means that you can trend improvements over time by having regular, consistent and timely reporting.

Our data collection methods include detailed evidence capture and which can be conducted as either quantitative or qualitative exercises.
