After Sales Service

SABSON has come up a long way since from the inception and we are glad to see the name engrossed in the Top Most Valuable Brands across here in the region. Our name has become synonymous with innovative & customer Centric Services Provider. Our aim and motto are related to the “The services and how it pays”

The services & how it pays:

We are proud to say, we “Sell the right Services”. The ‘Management agenda’ for ‘maturing companies’ focus on the real requirements of the ‘after sales services’ - service needs of the customer, which will persuade customers to buy their products. Our experiences so far remind us of the fact that ‘Customers need be treated on priority’ & never ever think of losing them.

We design the right Services and measure the customer satisfaction. At the moment most organizations provide too few or too many service offerings. In reality, there are very few companies who fulfill most customer requirements by focusing their efforts on just three to four of the following:

“RESPONSE TIME, after hours availability, Product coverage and Add – on services”.

Our group sets an example, given the margins to operate in this country, which after the introduction of various companies and provision of services, has paved the way for development all around and made the customer contented and proud to have an association with us.

There should be a consistent, high quality service maintained all the time for any growing company whenever and wherever they operate. It is highly damaging to “customer relations” if the time bound response is not guaranteed thus failing to deliver the right service. Part of the problem is that a “Service Business” is too often regarded as the ‘stepchild’ of the core product group, so Service Managers aren’t given the ‘resources’ to develop the right techniques, systems, tools, incentives to maximize returns and take fool proof measures. However, a handful of companies are now capturing the tremendous value from their Service Businesses by adopting a more careful, more fact and tactful based approach and by making the task a priority of Sr. Management. SABSON being a typical example for this which has captured and won the hearts of many.

“Customers are segmented according to their Service needs. We remember that the revenues from after sales are around 15-25 % and in our view are still more and proportionately increasing. Undoubtedly, putting a price on Services is more difficult than pricing products because the benefits are less tangible and they often lack the standards as a benchmark.

We are proud to state we share risk with the Customer “The companies that handle services most successfully have developed terms and conditions packages that ‘share risk with the Customer’ “. “And one can count the number of companies for the matter”.

To all our Valued Customers

SABSON shall endeavour to continue to patronize and extend our valuable support as usual. We can proudly say, we have created a “MOMENT OF TRUTH” by truly serving all our Customers with great Will & Spirit.
