Automotive mystery audits from SGS – offer OEMs insight into the customer experience of their dealer network.
Mystery audits offer you an opportunity to assess and review customer service, branding, presentation and much more from the customer perspective, but without impacting or affecting employee performance. Our automotive experts pose as customers to conduct audits and evaluate staff performance. This means dealer network employees are unaware of the assessment and react naturally to the auditor.
Every audit is tailored to your brand’s needs. A Mystery Shopper Profile is constructed and our auditor will then visit a dealership in the role of the customer and report on the service elements that are important to you. Our mystery audits report on the service elements that customers notice, including:
Reaction on phone calls, e-mails, website activities
General appearance of the showroom
Staff availability, friendliness, appearance and attitude
Waiting times, response times, transfers
Vehicle reception and delivery
Service fulfilment (on time delivery, quality of work)
Provision of courtesy cars or cost estimates
Quality of the work done (workshop tests)
Explanations of offers and invoices
