“Frontline staff are vital to the success of a company. They are the public face and brand guardians, outwardly expressing all the positive values of a company or brand.  Many companies do not have a clear view of their brand from their customers’ viewpoint.  Those companies that closely measure the customer experience react to the challenges presented and change the frontline to deliver real customer satisfaction and build long-term loyalty will ultimately flourish.”
