Why is customer experience important?

Posted by Nicholas Connell on Jun 6, 2016 1:13:11 PM

On a recent business trip to Singapore I had an experience which has stuck in my mind and I have felt the need to share this. This experience was Singapore airport.

The plane emptied quickly, there was no queue at passport control and our bags were on the carousel when we approached it. We walked out of the airport and hopped in a taxi. As the taxi pulled away from the airport the time was 4.55pm. I even took the time to complete a customer service questionnaire on the way out.
