Sanlam: RecoMed success story

This article was published by Sanlam in March 2017 as part of sharing young entrepreneur success stories as result of the Sanlam Enterprise Supplier Development programme. Sheraan Amod, CEO of RecoMed, has been chosen among a select few entrepreneurs to form part of this programme.

There’s no doubt managing the customer experience is the “new” golden pass – it’s been around for years, but only recently attracted the attention it deserves – to achieving customer loyalty and retention. The key here is to cultivate a consistent customer experience and brand persona throughout the entire organisation (as opposed to relying only on your customer service or front-end staff). What does all of this mean to medical practitioners? I included a couple of learnings below that apply:
