PVM have been working hard to develop and invest in our associates during the last few months, strengthening our Customer Service provision and providing greater support for our customers.
During the nationwide lockdown period we took the opportunity to take an in-depth look at our own operation to determine how PVM is best placed to help our customers. We understand that it is fundamental in these times to invest in our associates, and explore new ways to further our service and engagement with our customers, both new and existing.
We have implemented changes including the creation of two new supervisory roles within our Customer Service and Sales Support functions and have also appointed a new Head of Business to Business. This has seen the promotion of three existing associates into these roles, further developing both our customer service and sales proposition.
We understand that in the current landscape we are operating in, every business has its own set of individual challenges. Like many other businesses we have had to develop, explore and adopt new working practices. Over the last few months, we have looked at ways to innovate, develop and invest in technology for our associates so we can successfully enable these new working practices into our everyday working life. We have provided additional hardware to enable those normally office based to work from home without complications, and our associates are now also utilising a number of different online facilities to hold regular customer, stakeholder and associate meetings. This has been working so well for the last couple of months we can see ourselves taking these new practice’s forward in the future, ensuring our high service levels stay the same.
Our teams worked tirelessly throughout these past few months and we are proud to say we are now not only maintaining our business standards but through the changes we have made such as home working and the investment in additional hardware we have also be able to improve levels of engagement with our customers.
‘"n these unprecedented times we understand our customers need support more than ever. We’ve strengthened our Customer Service and Support functions, promoting two team members into Supervisory roles and giving each team a core set of specialist skills. We have also like many, had to adopt new methods of working and these new practices along with our other recent changes see us able to give those customers who wish to take advantage of our services even greater support." David Waring, Head of Account Management, Pendragon Vehicle Management
