Case Study: Customer Relations

Case Study: Customer Relations
1. Interview: After completing your assigned readings for this week, interview someone who has a customer relations/customer service role or responsibility where the person has organizational responsibility and knowledge of the company?s customer relations policies. This person could be in your own organization or in any other company. Ask the interviewee to describe the role and importance of customer relations/customer service to the organization and the top three customer relations/customer service issues faced by the organization. In case of a last minute conflict it is best to have a second choice lined up.
2. Supporting Research: Based on what you learned in the interview, you’ll conduct online research using scholarly resources, which can be found in the DeVry Online Library (available under Course Home) and online research sources such as Google. Locate at least four articles (two must be from scholarly resources) that discuss the current business climate for this company for inclusion as sources in your paper. What are current trends in this business (or in the overall industry of which this business is a member) that might impact customer service, customer satisfaction, or customer loyalty positively or negatively?
A.) Toyota is a business in the auto industry. Customers want safe cars. Toyota has had a series of setbacks in recent months from brakes failures to acceleration issues. Toyota has a history of great customer relations, but now appears to have to re-shape its image. Other car companies are using safety and quality messaging against Toyota (insert accurate APA in-text source citation here). Toyota needs to address its customer service programs and customer relations for both existing customers and potential new customers.
B.) Yume, the owner of a local Thai restaurant, has recently introduced a customer loyalty program where customers earn points for purchases that can be redeemed for free food and drinks; and customers love it! The American Restaurant Association says that loyalty programs are growing in popularity, especially in small boutique establishments, where there is a more personal connection between the owner and the customer (insert accurate APA in-text source citation here). Yume’s customers are very loyal and very satisfied, so since service improvement may not be entirely necessary, she may be able to expand her relationship with her customers by selling her sauces and cookbooks to her customers. This venture may also attract new customers!

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about this assignment.
Q1. I don’t know anyone in customer relations/service or my company doesn’t have a customer service function. What do I do?
