Mobile Customer Engagement for Services

It costs 5 times more to acquire new customers than to keep existing ones.

“Companies that alienate and frustrate their customers will soon have none left to bother them.

Those that go out of their way to please customers will soon have many more.”

- Harvard Business Review

Service businesses must retain customers to survive.

Mobile Customer Engagement from Impel provides tools to do just that.

Your Current Customers are Your Most Valuable Asset

You spent a lot of money to acquire your current customers. You thought simply providing great service was sufficient to keep them. Unfortunately this is no longer true.

In today’s hyper-competitive world, if you have not adopted leading customer engagement methods, you will lose your customers to your competitors who have.

Impel provides tools that allow you to engage your most precious asset and make them your long-term advocate.
