THE ONLY 10-POINT CHECK THAT ENSURES PRODUCT RELIABILITY AND CONSUMER CONFIDENCE IN A PRODUCT OR SERVICE.
In today’s stressful business market, it is not merely enough to assume having a quality product will meet industry or consumer requirement. Most customers expect more from their retailers nowadays with regards to how the product supplied affects global issues as well as ethical practices in the design, manufacture and supply chain.
Consumers are more concerned than ever before about:
- How a product was designed and manufactured.
- If it was processed in a sweat shop.
- If it has been manufactured under duress by child labour forces.
- If the environment has been considered throughout the supply chain when producing, packaging and supplying your product
- If animal rights have been taken into account
- Toxins and steriods in animals
- The health conditions
These are just a few items that are guiding a consumer in a certain direction when making a choice of products to purchase and where to purchase them from.
Customer information protection has also become a huge issue due to identification theft and spam marketing, all affecting a potential client’s consideration when buying a product. Customers find comfort in knowing the POPI act and general data protection regulations have been adhered to.
