What constitutes 5 Star Service?
Below is what we have learned from one of our continuing education courses!
What do patients want and care about ...
1) Treats me (the customer or the patient) as a human being, and not just as a number (reservation)
2) Anticipates my needs and have them available for me – for example, printing of boarding passes in the Hilton lobby falls into this category, electronically sending my prescription to the pharmacy of my choice so that I don’t have to wait when I get there. Sometimes surprises me by giving me an upgrade – nicer room, business class seat etc. without me asking for it at all.
3) Fixes problems without any fuss that occur even though I may be at fault – for example, I may have to cancel my trip because of unforeseen reason and even though the hotel (or a doctor’s office for that matter) has a 48 hour cancellation policy, they waive it understanding why I am unable to make the trip – trust/impress me once and I will return the favor next time – I am not trying to fleece you.
4) Remembers me once I have told you my preferences – king size bed, non smoking, room not near the elevator, aisle seat, frequent flyer numbers etc. – without asking me for this information all the time.
5) Provides what was promised. For example, dry cleaning ready when promised, car ready for pickup as promised, flights on time, contractor showing up on time – or if things go wrong – call me instead of me calling you: Things happen, but keep me in the loop, provide me options, show me you care about me.
· Pick the things you would expect, then show me not only their flawless delivery, but surprise me with one thing you might not expect.
- 1) Exceed your customer’s expectations — BIG TIME! 2) If your procedures do not meet the needs of your customers, CHANGE YOUR PROCEDURES!
- To earn 5 stars, you have to be pro-active, not re-active. No matter what the situation, remain calm, collected, and keep a professional demeanor.
- Doing everything possible to delight the customer.
- Personalized (but non-intrusive) customer service with extra attention to the smallest of details, continuously served straight from the heart (genuine).
- Per Scott Ginsberg, “All the policies, processes and tactics won’t mean a hill of beans if those in any kind of customer contact position aren’t *approachable.”
An important thing to remember for any company is that “5-Star Service” is not limited to luxury or high cost goods. It is similar to great speakers:
1. Illustrate/Tell your clients and prospects what they can expect from you.
2. Deliver at or ABOVE what you have promised.
3. Report back to your client how you delivered. An addition to this as “3a” would be to ask/survey your client to see if their perception of your service is the same as yours. Use that feedback as a teaching tool for future relationships.
This one is my favorite, as every customer/client/member/donor/patient is different:
- Client service excellence, just as with beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. For that reason, 5-star service is more of a frame of mind aimed at the individual than a goal for the masses. It’s not about being all things to all people; it is about being specific things to specific people.
In order to really deliver 5-Star Service to our customers, whether business or consumer, we need to understand them first. What are their expectations? What is their perspective, based on where they are today? What would make this interaction perfect for them? Whenever we take the customer’s viewpoint, we are that much closer to success in building up that customer’s relationship – and ultimately their loyalty and positive word of mouth.
