[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Last decade was marked by businesses reorienting themselves as increasingly customer-centric. There's no longer one cable company, one main shopping mall or one vendor of any specific product. Newcomers and established corporations get a foot in the door by promotions, viral marketing, but most and foremost – customer care. If you don't want to be labeled as merely 'satisfactory', but as a company that goes above and beyond, here's how you do it.
