Local Authority Mystery Shopping

Government agencies and local authorities have a duty to provide services that are cost-effective, meet customer needs, and align with national and local goals. Tackling avoidable contact can help to reduce waste, save resources, and improve customer satisfaction and reputation.

In other words, local authorities should strive to provide services that are:

  • Efficient: Services should be delivered in a way that minimises waste and maximises the use of resources.
  • Effective: Services should meet the needs of customers and achieve the desired outcomes.
  • Responsive: Services should be delivered in a timely and accessible manner.
  • Accountable: Local authorities should be accountable to their constituents for the quality and cost-effectiveness of their services.

Tackling avoidable contact is one way to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of local government services. By reducing the number of unnecessary interactions between customers and government staff, local authorities can save time and money, and improve the customer experience.

Using the expertise of mystery shoppers to assess your current service delivery and processes is a cost-effective and impartial way to ensure that you are not wasting valuable resources.

A professional and well-executed mystery shopping program provides a unique and objective perspective of the customer experience while keeping your staff on their toes with automotive mystery shopping..

Our highly experienced and trained mystery shoppers visit your office posing as potential customers, follow your scenario and inspection guidelines, and report back in great detail from the customer’s point of view.
