There are some customers who make you want to scream after you hang-up (that’s if they even pick up the phone the first place!) or worse yet, customers
that cause you to lose money. Identify those bad customers early and put strategies in place to readdress the relationship before it becomes an issue.
Join me, Chris Little – Commercial Director for Coface ANZ – along with our guest Murray Lawson, Managing Director at FTI Consulting for a webinar on May
17th at 12pm to uncover what some of those strategies may be.

So, here are the ten things we wish our customers would stop doing!
#1 become a “corporate ghost” – You can never get a hold of them or it’s a matter of hot-potato between reception and voicemails
#2 Are goal-post shifters – Constantly changing their commercial terms
#3 Misunderstanding tariffs –Not knowing when and if tariffs are applied
#4 Are relationship Gold-diggers –They take advantage of your contracted commercial terms
#5 Are delayed responders – Simply issues that can resolved quickly just drag out from weeks to months before they’re resolved
#6 Are operating as a Phoenix Company – a company that “rises from the ashes” of a failed company
#7 are “faceless” – when dealing with customers with language or cultural barriers, it’s difficult to know who you are trading with
#8 Steel your trademarket, patent or design – Your customer suddenly stops placing orders and only a few weeks later your find a very similar product on
#9 Aren’t open with their business
#10 Think they know it all and aren’t open to negotiation or discussion
