Field Inspections and Customer Quality Assurance Services
LRA, a Deloitte business
Companies and brands face specific quality assessment and standards compliance challenges. Whether logistical or due to highly nuanced customer interactions, these challenges often require a tailored, thoughtful approach to measurement.
Field examinations and inspections of your locations can identify the elements—customer-facing, as well as back-office operations—that impact your brand. We collect, evaluate, analyze, and synthesize data to provide quantifiable insights to help you enhance your brand standards, improve operational excellence, and reduce the risk to your brand reputation. Our solutions can be tailored to provide a snapshot view of system-wide performance, measure the delivery of your brand promise, or deliver immediate feedback on the customer experience at each touch point—virtual or physical.
We deploy a full-time, professional team of consultants to measure highly technical brand, product, and service standards that mystery shoppers cannot.
Our consultants are full-time associates who are trained on our distinct methodology, which provides competitive advantages in the consistency of our data.
Consultative field examinations
Unlike mystery shoppers, consultants can assess back-of-house areas and operations. They can consult and provide feedback to location managers or corporate management based on findings.
We deploy field examination and inspections teams with operations and managerial experience in the industries they measure.
Our leadership in design, deployment, and analytics gives you a competitive advantage in customer experience.
Periodic reviews allow us to address emerging challenges and drive continuous improvement. Our brand assessment programs improve with time and secure long-term relationships.
Improving the customer experience drives deeper emotional connections with a company/brand and increases favorable perception, spend, and loyalty.
Our dedicated technology staff has developed a powerful quality management and reporting platform, enabling us to configure scoring, reporting, and dashboard views that speak to our clients.
