Competitive Advantage

The SERVICEBRAND approach is based on the well respected service profit chain model (“Putting the Service-Profit Chain to Work”, Heskett et al, – Harvard Business Review) and includes the additional elements of Brand Identity and Systems & Processes.
The focus is on placing the Customer Experience at the heart of the business and aligning the following areas:

Brand Identity – having a strong sense of Purpose and Values guiding all areas of the operation.

Employee Engagement – inspiring people to be One Team of true ambassadors for the organisation.

Systems & Processes – ensuring that the organisation infrastructure supports the other elements.

The SERVICEBRAND approach involves aligning these areas at the levels of Strategy, Management and Delivery.

A supportive, coaching style is used to engender ownership and deliver sustainable success.

We collaborate with a network of partners to deliver bespoke SERVICEBRAND initiatives.

“Truly progressive thinking. The pragmatic approach to providing a customer experience achieves measurable return on investment.”
