Customer Service

Since incorporation in 1998, CD-Mediaworks has grown the number of products and services offered. The goal of this Customer Service Policy is to convey to you, the customer, what you can realistically expect from CD-Mediaworks.

CD-Mediaworks is committed to improving the way it offers high quality services that are easily accessible. With this in mind, the policy presented here is organized for your convenience. For example, look in the On-site Standards section to find out how CD-Mediaworks will help your business with our On-site Service Policy. To find out about in-house contract work such as Web Design and Custom Software Development, see the Software Contracts section.

We hope that you find this policy to be as user-friendly as possible, and we welcome your comments and suggestions.

Principles
This Customer Service Policy revolves around people --from industry to the individual. It is based on ideas, suggestions, and feedback received from our customers and staff. It defines our customer service standards and processes for building and maintaining high quality services to meet those standards throughout the world.

The following principles drive our customer service policy:

Customers Know What They Want -Rather than sitting back and assuming that we knew what customers wanted and needed, we went out and asked. We listen to what our customers think about the types and quality of services and products we offer. What we discover helps us to refine our products and services to ensure that we are meeting your needs.

Customers Needs Are Paramount -Based on feedback from our customers, we respond immediately to comments and suggestions about improving the way we deliver our products and services.

Communication Is A Key to Our Success -Developing effective tools to open lines of communication with our customers helps us do our jobs better. By developing effective lines of communication, CD-Mediaworks is in a good position to address any customer needs and concerns.
Approach
The standards established here are partly based on industry standards. More importantly, our standards reflect the feedback we have received and address issues important to our customers.

Our Customers
CD-Mediaworks serves four primary customer groups -the general public (e.g., home users), office professionals, small businesses, and others in the computer industry. These four broad categories encompass the populations that we serve and work with most often.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In-house (Software) Contract Standards


The standards described here represent our effort to identify the needs and concerns of our customers and to establish and address these needs and concerns.

Time Estimates are a key ingredient to this policy. In contracts where time estimates are required, documented procedures will be followed to arrive at a clear estimate.

Job Progress - An informed customer is a happy customer. We want our customers to be apprised of any major (or minor) developments in any work undertaken by CD-Mediaworks. This serves to avoid any surprises at the end.

Job Auditing includes the review of all records, logs, and journals. All work performed on a worksite, location, or at CD-Mediaworks. All project time is be logged, as well as any additional details or info that might be useful to the work at hand.

Consistency - You can be assured that every representative of CD-Mediaworks holds to the same principles or practices across the organization.

Feedback- is welcome at any time both during and after any job. Please see our Contact Info page for ways to contact us.

Problem Solving- Proposed solutions or considerations are made in writing to resolve something that is an obstruction or prevents progress.

Prompt handling of complaints- Immediate management of charges of dissatisfaction are addressed. Any deficiencies that are found as a result will be fixed at no-charge to the customer.

Timeliness- information and/or responses are provided early or on time.

SUMMARY - All CD-Mediaworks Software Customers are entitled to:

Fair, courteous and professional treatment;
Information that is accurate and current;
Timely responses to requests;
Flexibility- the capacity to adapt to or change requirements is paramount in our goal of providing superior products and services. 'The customer is always right' is a defining principal of our company.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On-site Standards

The standards described here represent our effort to identify the needs and concerns of our customers and to establish and address these needs and concerns. The following standards apply to the customer groups where on-site service is required:


Job Start and Completion Times will be presented, in writing, before any job is started. If extra time is required in order to complete a job satisfactorily, the customer will be notified by telephone or email immediately.

Follow Up Contact- is our standard procedure. A follow up contact will be made within 48hrs of the job completion time. A Maintenance Agreement of 1 to 12 months may also be negotiated at this time at a highly discounted rate.

New Equipment is often the easiest 'fix' when it comes to on-site service- but this option is also balanced with the notion that the customer may not be in a position to purchase new equipment. Our policy is to only replace when absolutely necessary. This is determined by assessing the repair costs including labour against the replacement costs, or if the near/long-term maintenance of the original equipment will outweigh the cost of replacement.


Consistency - You can be assured that every representative of CD-Mediaworks holds to the same principles or practices across the organization.

Feedback- is welcome at any time both during and after any job. Please see our Contact Info page for ways to contact us.
