Customer Care Feedback.

“Discover What Your Customers REALLY Feel About Your Service…

…With Our Pilot ‘Test’ Customer Feedback Offer!”

Show your customers you care by letting us phone them for you! 

  • Are you getting filtered or distorted customer service feedback from your own staff and sales people?
  • Would you like happy customer testimonials, case studies and sales content for your online marketing and sales’ kit?
  • Do you want to know exactly how powerful customer feedback (done professionally) can be for your business and bottom line profits?
  • Do you know which fixes are needed to correct problems causing your customers to leave you, to do business with your competitors?

Maybe it’s time you discover what your customers ACTUALLY think about doing business with you.

Give it a try…

You can try our Customer Care Programme to get an idea of how we work and especially to gain valuable customer feedback. For a limited initial investment we guarantee you’ll find those hidden insights into your business which enable you to deliver an enhanced customer service experience, leading to improved sales and customer retention. As a “pilot” or “test”, we will engage with 10 of your selected customers to measure, evaluate and monitor customer service levels.

Our Customer Care Program (CCP) uses extensive business expertise to check your customer service levels and helps you reap the benefits of increased customer loyalty. It provides you with peace of mind, knowing that your customer service staff is performing as they should and ultimately help you fully leverage the value of your customer base.

New Styles


Join over 5 million people who use FreshBooks (animated)I recently downloaded a Free Freshbooks package to check its functionality to see if it had any benefit for me, a person always on the go.

I was pleasantly surprised at the ease of creating an invoice on the fly. I saw that I could also use a job costing section as well as an on-the-cloud billing for a client visit. I created one as soon as I had downloaded the trial and what I saw was a professional looking invoice which added to my reputation as it clearly allowed me to proclaim my branding

The invoicing feature is brilliant with its late payment reminders that automatically email clients when they forget to settle their bills on time.

The expenses tracking feature is also excellent for us who are always on the run. I used it to keep track of my expenses for that day and it worked. I used my camera on the mobile device I was using and it was instantly uploaded straight into my account. Wow!

A great feature is that when I bill a client I can get payment at that point as the package allows acceptance of credit card payment. Great for improving cashflow.

I have not yet used the financial reporting but if the hype about that is true then I am sure I am going to be just as impressed with this feature as I was with the others.

Some of the benefits, which I tested,  from the Freshbooks site.
