Mystery Shopping

Measuring your customer service tells you where you are now, how you are performing in fulfilling your products/service, so you can have happy customers, happy bottom lines, and  you can differentiate yourself by standing out from the competition.

Why Mystery Shopping?

‘Because you can’t manage what you don’t measure.’ Mystery Shopping gives you an objective view of the service your employees are providing to your customers.


Do you know why customer don’t return to your business?

Well according to a survey by CustomersThatStick, 82% poor customer service! and John Gattorna, a visiting professor at Macquarie Graduate School of Management, published the following figures on why businesses lose customers:

  • 82% poor customer service
  • 68% they perceive you are  indifferent to them
  • 33% consider switching after just a single instance of poor service.
  • 13% poor product quality
  • 9% price

This is why Mystery Shopping is an important benchmark which helps you to set your Customer Experience strategy going forward.

David Elliott, Business Development Director at Voisins Department Store, tells you why businesses need to measure their services

How does it work?

By evaluating, measuring and reporting of customer service standards using a specially trained agents, called Mystery Shoppers, acting as if they were customers. Retail stores, hotels, restaurants, theatres, property management companies and automobile dealers are amongst the many organisations that employ mystery shoppers to help evaluate and improve their service delivery.


Did you know that a 5% increase in customer retention can increase a company’s profitability between 50 & 75%! Now be honest, you know you can’t:

  • be in your business 24/7
  • be in 2, 3 or 20 places at once
  • improve if you don’t get feedback
  • celebrate success if no-one tells you
  • manage what you don’t measure

Measuring your service delivery means that you can really give the support to your team to improve the customer experience, pinpoint how your customers are feeling and how emotionally connected they are to your brand, and that altogether you are following your business vision, this is the difference between surviving and thriving.

Improving your customer service is one of the most effective way to increase profitability in the long term. Repeat business is a key profit-maker by saving on unnecessary expenditure such as advertising, let your customers be your marketers!!
