Adapt or perish…How prepared are you?

Adapt or perish is the adage that most businesses needs to follow today-if they are not already.
As per a study conducted by KPMG*
- 89 percent of consumers began doing business with a competitor following a poor experience
- A customer is four times less likely to defect to a competitor if the service-related problem is handled effectively.
- A 5% reduction in the customer defection rate can increase profits up to 95%
