What is a Customer Business Review?

Simply stated, a customer business review is:

  • A formally scheduled session of approximately two hours between key representatives of both your company and a top customer’s company.
  • A session designed to review the business your two companies have done during a sales period, highlight key accomplishments, discuss any outstanding issues or problems, and agree on a plan for future growth.

What People Are Saying After Holding Customer Business Reviews?

“This meeting really helped enhance our relationship. They opened up more than they ever had. One customer told me this showed him that we don’t take them for granted!”

“We had 4 people there and they had 7 people. It gave us a great opportunity to review all the things that we planned to achieve. We came away with a handshake and tremendous commitment for additional business.”

“We learned a lot about issues they had with our organization that we did not know about. Many of them were small stumbling blocks, but if put together and not addressed, we may have lost their business. Probably sooner than later.”

“I thought this gave us a great opportunity to thank the customer. They saw us as a collaborative team for the first time. They want to do it again next year.”
