Airlines: love is in the air

Plane tickets: today, they have become more than common among consumers. But the pressure on airline companies is bigger than ever.

Penny wise, pound foolish!

To consumers, financial products such as mortgages and loans are incredibly alike. So if you’re in the business of selling them, you need to focus on attention rather than content. That’s your USP. It’s all about adding a personal touch so the customer will choose your financial product over another. Easier said than done, because attention costs time, and time is costly. Therefore, we’d like…


Ah-ha or oh-no moment?

From pain to gain: solve issues before they occur

Wherever output and service levels are measured, you will find an organized department that needs to guide the entire process in the right direction. It may be any organization’s contact center, but it can also be a logistics company’s warehouse or distribution center. The important thing is to know where you stand at all times.

Happy customers

Happy employees, happy customers: fostering vitality and energy

Happy employees perform better. If you think about this statement, it’s so logical that mentioning it seems superfluous. Unfortunately, it’s highly necessary to do so.
