Customer Service

In the eyes of the majority of our customers, the only real difference between between us and others is customer service.  Appearance, attitude and respect for our customer’s time and property are all judgments that are made by the customer, generally the second we walk through the door.

Customers have a choice, its essential to ‘wow’ our customers at every point, from answering the initial telephone call, the sales process, through to delivering the service and by ‘actively’ listening to our customer to deliver ongoing value and further services to support and ideally exceed our customers’ expectations of the relationship.

Its important that the customer receives added value by choosing WFP, this includes helping customers to make the most of their systems; including advising them how to spend their budgets wisely on upgrades and repairs and to remain compliant with law, keeping them abreast of any changes in the law or technology that could benefit their long term objectives; either by saving them money or giving more benefits for the same or less expenditure.

Where do we work?

WFP is based in Essex and we work in London and all of the surrounding counties, most of our work is in the centre of London and out towards East Anglia.
