The Relationship Between Quality Management and Customer Satisfaction

There is a proven and studied relationship between quality management and customer satisfaction. Without quality management systems in place, a customer is not guaranteed to get exceptional service or an exceptional product, and there is also no guarantee of consistency and equity throughout the customer experience. 

Increased Product Quality

A well-defined quality management system (QMS) ensures a better quality of product. When your quality management system operates efficiently and effectively, you and your employees can stop problems before they happen, avoid unpleasant customer experiences, and ensure that each product and service is of the highest quality.

Consistency and Equity

The only way to maintain consistency and equity in your customer relationships is through a defined quality management system. Your customers will come to expect quality products and services, and you can rest assured knowing that each customer is receiving the same exceptional customer service.

Maintain Quality Control

Your quality management system allows you to maintain quality control. Each piece of the product and/or step in the workflow is evaluated at key points to ensure that standards are met or exceeded. Nothing will slip through the cracks, and if there is a problem, it will be uncovered and fixed before it affects the customer.

Quickly Determine the Source of a Problem

An effective, comprehensive quality management system makes it easy to determine how and why something has gone wrong. If a customer complains, if a product is tainted or broken, or if there is a delay in the workflow, you can find out exactly why it occurred. This is because a key part of a successful quality management system is having a clearly defined workflow and consistent standards throughout operations.
