Some Good Quotes on Customer Service

Being on par in terms of price and quality only gets you into the game. Service wins the game.

The single most important thing to remember about any enterprise is that there are no results inside its walls. The result of a business is a satisfied customer.

Quality in a service or product is not what you put into it. It is what the client or customer gets out of it.

Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.

Quality, is job one.

Well done is better than well said.

You’ll never have a product or price advantage again. They can be easily duplicated, but a strong customer service culture can’t be copied.

People expect good service but few are willing to give it.

Biggest question: Isn’t it really ‘customer helping’ rather than customer service? And wouldn’t you deliver better service if you thought of it that way?

Good leaders must first become good servants.

The true leaders serves. Serves people. Serves their best interests, and in doing so will not always be popular, may not always impress. But because true leaders are motivated by loving concern than a desire for personal glory, they are willing to pay the price.

If you get everybody in the company involved in customer service, not only are they ‘feeling the customer’ but they’re also getting a feeling for what’s not working.

If you don’t understand that you work for your mislabeled subordinates, then you know nothing of leadership. You know only tyranny.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Customers don’t expect you to be perfect. They do expect you to fix things when they go wrong.

Unless you have 100% customer satisfaction…you must improve.

I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.

There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.

The fruit of SILENCE is Prayer.
The fruit of PRAYER is Faith.
The fruit of FAITH is Love.
The fruit of LOVE is Service.
The fruit of SERVICE is Peace.

Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify!

A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependant on us – we are dependent on him.

A sale is not something you pursue, it is something that happens to you while you are immersed in serving your customer.

As far as customers are concerned you are the company. This is not a burden, but the core of your job. You hold in your hands the power to keep customers coming back – perhaps even to make or break the company.

Although your customers won’t love you if you give bad service, your competitors will.

A Very Good Illustarion of an excellent customer Service (Going a Step Ahead of Cutomer requirement)

Jay was a fresh graduate who just finished his graduation and was on job hunt.
He was absorbed into a mega mall on probation. He was recruited as a sales
executive with the condition that he would be confirmed on his job only if he
could have a sale of atleast Rs 5000/- to his account on a daily basis.
On the first day of his duty as per the usual practice everybody was gathered for
briefing and at the end of the briefing before they dispersed to their respective
work stations they were instructed to gather back to the assembly room at
8.30pm for submitting their daily report.
The manager somewhere had a feeling that this boy would prove to be a shining
star and thus made it a point to specially visit the medical section where Jay was
It was already 4.30Pm and on being asked about his sales for the day as of 4 o
clock, Jay replied, “it is really good to see the people of our city so hale and
healthy” so as of now my score for the day is Zero!
The manager left the section giving a warning to Jay but internally also feeling
very dejected and depressed for the boy.
At the end of the day the manager was given a report of having a record
breaking sale figure.
So he decided to meet and know about the star employee of the mall at the end.
So as per his routine practice to give more emphasis and concentration to newcomers,
he started taking the daily reports first from the new joiners.
Jay was the 8th for report submission.
On his turn he entered the manager’s cabin very coolly.
The manager welcomed his and offered him a seat and asked – so what is your
score for the day, he replied back after a short calculative pause – Well Sir, it is
just Rs 1,43,14,037.75/- What?!!!!!! Exclaimed the Manager with a tone of
happiness in his voice.
The manager was very curious to know the details about this record breaking
sale figure.
Jay explained, sir today the sale thru my employee reference code enlists - a
fishing rod worth Rs 250, Baits for Rs 75, Walkman with earphones Rs 900/- Boat
for Rs 1250, Anchor to fasten the boat Rs 450, Mini Tempo Rs 67000, Home Rs
13245000, Furniture and home appliances Rs 575000, Car Rs 425000 & Medicine
Rs 12.75. So finally totaling to Rs 14314937.75
But till 4.30pm your ERC had no sale to its account, how did you manage these
within 4 hours? Asked the manager.
Sir, I had a NRI customer who has recently shifted to our country. As he came to
my section he looked very disturbed, confused and helpless. He was very new to
this place, people and culture here. I offered him a glass of cold water and in the
meanwhile sold him all the above items.
I should actually thank the management and the administration for equipping us
with the latest technology that I could finish selling all these just within the short
span of 3.5 hours with the least hazzles. I logged into our intranet and got into
the various relevant portals and showed the customer all the relevant products
on screen and finalised the deals very easily.
Manager asked - But Jay how did you manage to convince the customer to buy
all these.
Jay Replied - Sir, On talking to him I realised that he needed peace of mind and
the best way to have a peace of mind is Fishing and Music, so I suggested him to
buy, a fishing rod and baits for fishing and a walkman for hearing music while at
To go fishing a boat would be required and an anchor to tie the boat which he
agreed to. There after, the thought of carrying the boat back home came and we
finalised on the purchase of a mini Tempo. While showing him the ideal location
for boating and fishing, the thought of going in for a real estate – a home in a
peaceful location in the banks of river came up. Linked to the real estate were the
home appliances like, AC, fridge, Water heater, TV, Washing machine, Sound
system & DVD etc and also the furniture and fixtures.
Now with such a posh well furnished home a luxury car was essential and last
but not the least - a strip of tablet to take care of his headache – this is how he
came to me to my section.
No Wonder this Sales Executive definitely deserved to become a Chief Executive
Officer - CEO some day.
