We are committed to meeting if not exceeding our clients’ expectations whenever possible. As much as we all dislike receiving complaints, we recognise that dissatisfied clients have a right to complain and to have their complaint handled quickly and directly. Clients who take the time to complain may well still have confidence in us and want to continue dealing with us.
Complaints are not just a nuisance or a cost, they are an opportunity to obtain feedback from clients about their product or service experience. We use them as a way to assist us to rapidly and inexpensively change products, service style and market focus to meet clients’ needs, maintain clients’ confidence and continuously improve service and relationships with our clients.
Complaints are, in fact, a valuable and important part of ongoing business relationships. They provide a flag to potential problems and difficulties, and a repetition of complaints can indicate a recurring systemic problem that needs immediate attention. They enable us to provide solutions to problems, rather than have remedies imposed by an external body.
The prompt resolution of complaints is a good indicator of whether, generally, we are consistent and presenting the best possible image to clients and prospective clients. It enables us to prevent disputes from becoming entrenched.
All staff and credit representatives must comply with our internal dispute resolution procedures.
We do not charge a fee to consumers who make a complaint.
