The supermarket and pharmacy sub-sectors of the Nigerian economy have been highly ranked in a new survey on customer service delivery in the country.
The 2017 survey, just released by Nigeria Customer Service Award Limited (NCSAL), notes that the subsector scored 77.97 percent in the ranking, according to Aliyu Ilias, the company’s managing director.
The oil and gas sector obtained 77.15 percent while the telecommunication sector scored 70.13 percent, to occupy the second and third positions respectively.
Ilias said the results were based on staff attitude, product and process knowledge as well as general appearance.
He said the purpose of the research was to examine service quality delivery, customer satisfaction and customer experience of the top 14 Nigerian industrial sectors in 2017.
The research, he said, was conducted in a bid to achieve standard and credibility and that data were collected on the three service parameters across the sectors.
His words: “Haulage, aviation, and insurance sectors have the lowest performance in the area of staff attitude and conduct as well as ambiance and staff appearance.
“In the area of process, product knowledge, haulage recorded a small step ahead of the visa processing and media sectors as across the three critical success factors considered, the performance of the haulage sector was poor.”
Ilias said all indications across the measurement parameters proved that much still needed to be done toward achieving excellent service delivery, especially in the haulage, media and aviation industries.
According to him, feedbacks from opinion polls and customers proved that customers are dissatisfied with customer service delivery in the haulage and aviation sector.
