Customer

CRM

A customer focused approach forms the foundation of our mission, values and business creed at Borusan Lojistik. And constantly upgraded customer-oriented practices help establish this approach as an integral part of our company culture.

borusan portIn the broadest sense, CRM is a strategy used to learn more about customers' needs and behaviors in order to develop stronger relationships with them. Designed to facilitate efficient customer relation management so as to ensure mutually value creating long-term partnerships, CRM requires redefining sales, marketing and service processes around a customer focused outlook.

The system is centered around three factors – Human Resource, Process, and Technology. CRM projects involve structuring these three factors in a way that will best serve the organization’s business strategies.

At Borusan Lojistik we believe in taking full advantage of technology in our business processes. The CRM software we installed in January 2006 helps us store a wealth of information about our customers in a unified database so that we can instantly access up to date information online.

Customized to best match our work processes, and constantly upgraded to keep pace with technologic developments and evolving needs, the program is used by our entire sales and customer relations corps as well as executives.

At Borusan Lojistik, customer feedbacks are always welcome and valued as developmental tools.

Borusan Lojistik embarked on its quest to put a stronger emphasis on customer satisfaction in 2002 when it set up the Customer Focus Project Group. Customer Satisfaction Interviews were followed by Voice of the Customer Management Project where ‘voice of the customer’ signifies all feedback we receive from our customers. After nearly eight months of intense work, the VOC Model was finalized and implemented.

The VOC management model incorporates:

  • Systematic and integrative approach to VOC (improved comprehension)
  • Boosting the performance levels of work processes to better address customer expectations (improved implementation)
  • Supplying products and services that meet customer expectations (improved service)

Capturing the Voice of the Customer

Gathering voice of the customer data is the first function of the VOC model. Systematic data gathering is essential if we want to reach an accurate picture. Accordingly, all Borusan Lojistik employees are equally responsible when it comes to gathering and recording customer feedback.

Criticisms, suggestions, requests, notes of appreciation and similar feedback are meticulously entered in records.

Customers can voice their feedback concerning our processes and activities in the course of regular visits from Borusan Lojistik Sales and Customer Services Department staff.

Annual customer visits complementing our Customer Satisfaction Interviews and VOC surveys provide another opportunity to gather feedback.

In addition to the above, customers are encouraged to contact us via written letter, phone, fax or the contact form on our website.
