Client Retention and Proactive Service Recovery in a Buyer’s Market
Largely due to the rise of TNCs in the ground transportation market, it’s become clear that we are in the midst of a buyer’s market. As a result, if your company isn’t doing everything possible to accommodate and cater to your client base then they’re likely to find another service.

You’ll learn the benefits of keeping ahead of the curve and having policies in place to appease clients when a customer service issue arises.
