We use multiple methods to achieve this including WhatsApp groups, email communication and our thorough Customer Relation Management (CRM) system, in order to give the client peace of mind. WhatsApp groups are utilized on all projects, whereby members of staff including the company director, office manager, plumber, electrician and all other relevant on-site workers are added. These groups are utilized by the client in order to ask any questions they might have regarding their project, which will then be seen and addressed by the relevant persons. These groups are also used for our workers to update the client at the end of each day, on the current status of their project, with a small write up and corresponding photographs. 

With the addition of our new CRM system clients portal, clients will be able to log on to a portal that will have all the relevant documentation, including drawings, photographs of the job, building control certificates and correspondence etc. pertaining to their project. This will be updated frequently by our team, for clear and thorough communication between our staff and the client. This should help to provide the client with a sense of structure for their project, as they will be able to see what works specifically we intend to carry out every day, and at the end of each day they will be able to log on and see the progress that has been made. The value of good communication is one of the most vitally important aspects, that has an impact on the costs, the overall success of the project, and most importantly the overall customer experience.
