The Best Service Is No Service

A best selling book written by colleagues in our global alliance LimeBridge, The Best Service Is No Service is an ecosystem of data, process, cloud based tools and accountability. It is ideal for high growth without adding proportionate sales and support costs. For large scale operations, the benchmark is a 20% per annum reduction in effort for customers and in budgets.

We work and share with UK and global clients, so we stay up to date with the latest practices and technologies that might help you. We present & judge awards, work with Pro Bono charity clients and with our colleagues internationally. For a decade, we have facilitated the Chief Customer Officer Forum of passionate clients, sharing customer challenges old and new.
