In today’s competitive digital marketplace, most clients of publishers and information services companies expect to get what they demand. That’s the norm. When something goes wrong, for example, they need to resolve the issue as fast and as efficiently as possible. And yet, to stand out from the rest, publishers and information services companies need to exceed expectations consistently. For instance, publishers are also under increasing pressure to rein in costs, which makes the challenge of keeping customers happy even more pressing. Therein lies the opportunity.
To help publishers meet this challenge without breaking their budgets, SPi Global has combined its domain expertise in the publishing industry with its global resources to provide claims and returns processing, order fulfillment and technical support. Many of the world’s largest commercial and not-for-profit publishers have benefitted from these customer support services we provide.
SPi Global also sets and achieves aggressive process improvement goals for our clients, applying best practices that have routinely improved turnaround time. One client cut the turnaround time from nine days to two. Another reduced it from two days to only one. We also provide detailed performance tracking reports on client engagements, giving our clients visibility into key metrics that document our performance.
Here’s a more detailed look of how we’re helping our clients meet and exceed the expectations of their customers:
