What does a typical timescale look like?
The end-to-end process for a full IIC assessment, is designed to cause minimal disruption to your day-to-day business activities. Usually full feedback is provided within 6-8 weeks with on-going support for a further 12 months.
Your IIC assessment will give you an honest, independent view that you simply cannot get from internal reports.
We will conduct an implementation meeting with you to agree how to adapt the IIC framework to best suit your needs. This meeting will allow us to agree the best questions to provide the information you require; the segments that you wish to analyse and the best time to run the project.
We will send questionnaires to all (or a selection of) your customers, employees and management. In addition, or alternatively, we can set up dedicated URL links to the relevant surveys which can be sent directly to customers by your senior team or key account managers.
We use standard question sets but, where appropriate, will tailor these to your business requirements. The customer and employee question sets are different but cover the same topics, which allows direct comparison between internal and external perceptions of your business. We include “free text” questions which tend to point to specific areas where improvements can be made.
We also ask you to complete a short questionnaire which asks you about how you deal with your customers (complaints procedures, how you collect feedback etc). The responses to these questions, together with analysis of your website and literature are scored to provide an external perception of your customer centricity.
We will work with your project team to help with data, agreeing questions and email communications. We suggest that you brief key members of your team as soon as possible and mention the project to all employees and customers in advance. This helps to drive up response rates and assures customers that the questionnaires are genuine. The process usually involves you sending a warm-up email out a few days before we go live. We will provide you with examples of briefing documents and warm-up communications.
Examples from the report you will receive from us
We will provide you with a comprehensive report, detailing all feedback scores and comparisons between key stakeholder groups and relevant segments, together with a benchmark to how you compare to other IIC customers. We also deliver an action plan detailing the steps to take to improve the service you provide. You will also receive copies of all customer; employee and management comments.
Helping you validate the progress you make, year-on-year, with piece of mind. Our multi-year subscription option offers an affordable way to assess and maintain your IIC accreditation on an annual basis.
