MAN highlights new 'CustomerFirst' concept

UAE, March 28, 2018

MAN Truck & Bus Middle East highlighted its latest customer experience concept, ‘CustomerFirst’, at its recently concluded 2018 After-Sales Conference, which was marked by the strong participation of MAN partners from 14 countries in the Middle East.

The concept topped the agenda of the event, which was held from March 11 to 14, in Muscat, Oman, and attended by representatives of MAN Truck & Bus headquarters in Munich, Germany, and its regional office in Dubai, UAE, said a statement.

The conference highlighted that exploring the fundamentals of better and effective customer experience is key to the success of businesses of all shapes and sizes across industries, it said.

The attendees emphasised that enhancing customer experience is more relevant in the automotive industry as needs and expectations of consumers continue to evolve along with advancements in technology, it added.

Dr Richard Brown, head of after-sales, MAN Truck & Bus Middle East, said it is important to derive deeper insights from customer interactions to design and deliver products and services that create value and exceed the expectations of users.

Brown said: “The innovative customer-centric programme records the perceptions of our customers with regard to service quality using a measuring system that tracks information from start to finish along the most significant customer journeys.”

“Modern-day customers are more empowered and are looking for integrated and end-to-end solutions. We are convinced that integrated offering is the key for future service contracts,” he added.

Franz Freiherr von Redwitz, managing director, said: “After we implement our programme, we will be better positioned to offer peace of mind with every vehicle we deliver so our customers can focus on running their businesses.”

The comprehensive customer service programme was awarded the German Awards for Excellence 2018 in the “Products and Services - Customer Support” category by the German Institute for Service Quality and DUB Unternehmer magazine in February this year.

During the three-day conference, the representatives of MAN Truck & Bus headquarters and the regional office briefed the attendees about the latest developments in the world of business and marketing.

Furthermore, members of after-sales team of the regional office hosted workshops on four themes, such as ‘Close Cooperation and Steering’; ‘Fighting the Competition’; ‘Commitment’ and ‘Focus on Customer’.

In addition, participants representing six importers in the region gave presentations on customer service initiatives they have implemented over the past year and highlighted their achievements.

During the event, the ‘Floating Trophy for the Middle East Market of the Year’ was awarded to Integrated Automotive, the MAN Truck & Bus importer for Jordan. The winner was chosen on the basis of regularly submitted KPIs and the quality of business conducted over the previous year, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
