New customer portal release

Published on: 28 September 2018

The team at Simon Driscoll Consultancy are always listening to our customers, encouraging feedback and seeking ways of improving the efficiency of our customer service. Earlier this year a comprehensive survey of our customers was undertaken to seek out ways in which we can provide greater value on a day to day basis.

As was recently highlighted in an interview with our CEO Simon Driscoll in CEO Monthly Magazine, in response to this customer feedback we have created a new online customer portal making it a more informative, engaging and intuitive digital interface.

As of 1 October 2018, all customers will have access to an online account and support portal that will enable them to see, at a glance, all aspects of their relationship with Simon Driscoll Consultancy. From logging and amending cases to reviewing contact details and contracts, the new online portal provides our customers greater control over their interactions with us and more transparency in the operations of our consultancy.

This feature roll-out will also provide all of our customers the opportunity to interact with Anne Douglas, our Learning and Development Manager, who will be working with each of our customers to introduce them and guide them through the new online portal.

This online support portal is the first phase of our operational improvement program, we will be rolling out. As we engage further with our customers and seek out more feedback, we will be continually finding new and better ways to conduct our business and provide value to our customers.
