Solving Consumer Complaints

Consumers are often frustrated due to lack of attention to complaints by suppliers…

Individuals buy goods and services to meet their needs and complaints arise when performace of the products or services do not lead to customer satisfaction. Such customer complaints arise soon after purchase and timely resolution of the grievance is the duty of the supplier or manufacturer or service provider, as the case may be.

However, companies often exhibit lackadaisical attitude in attending to customer complaints and this leads to frustration among consumers who continue to follow-up but to no avail. Sometimes, in case of defective products, suppliers offer free repair whereas the buyers demand new products as free replacement because the buyers believe that newly-bought products should have been defect-free in the first instance.
