Don’s Did You Know?

Customer Experience (CX) has become our absolute passion and we are devoted to doing all we can to improve your experience with us as well as our retail customers.

Recently, our entire management team went to
a training class, with Clayton Athens, to gain a better understanding of how to become customer obsessed. We had a great day and ultimately came away with reminding ourselves to always look through the eyes of the customer (see the red glasses) in everything we do.

We keep a pair of these glasses on our desks and our conference room to ensure every decision we make, we think about our customer!


 

Custom Care Spotlight

Customer Care and Sales Team Join Forces

We know that “after the sale” service is just as important to our customers as our “pre-sale” efforts. That’s why we’re making a revolutionary shift on how we take care of our customers throughout the entire purchase process.

We are so excited to announce that our Sales team and Customer Care team have united forces for the ultimate customer experience!

Each of our Sales reps is now aligned with a Customer Care rep to streamline your purchases. We aim to eliminate frustration and confusion by giving you one point of contact for each of your sales and each of your customer care needs. We appreciate their collaboration!

“I think having some accountability from both sales and customer care to one customer is a really good way to streamline communication and remove the guess work. Love the direction you’re heading!”

Sales Update

WE’VE UPPED OUR STANDARDS!

Those red glasses from the CX training are working at Sulphur Springs! The sales team recently took some time to look through the lens of our customers and found that several of our options are items that are put in nearly 100% of our homes.

If this is what our customers want every single time, why not just make them standard in all of our homes? It just makes sense, and it’s the right thing to do. Going forward, the following options will now be STANDARD with no charge in all of our Sulphur Springs models:

  • Dishwasher
  • Vinyl Shutters
  • Steel Front Door
  • Lino Entry
  • Can Lights in Kitchen /Dining Room
  • 40 Gal. Water Heater
  • 2” Mini Blinds
  • Trim Around Mirrors
  • Ceiling Fan in Living Room
  • 42” DuraCraft Cabinets
  • Main Panel in All Closets
  • Low E Windows

We’re so excited to bring extra Value, Integrity, and Design to our Sulphur Springs Customers!

 


 

Service Tidbit

With the new Sales Path rolling out comes lots of changes. Please feel free to reach out to us at any time for assistance with entering bill backs, parts or factory service. Keep in mind that it is imperative that you provide detailed descriptions along with supporting pictures. This will allow us to process your request more efficiently.

Also, Vantage Support is there as well to assist
with challenges that may arise as we transition over. Communication will be the key to success! Working together in conjunction with this new tool, we will be able to provide the best possible experience for our new Clayton Family members!
