)-- In today's market conditions, retailers the world over are looking for any possible competitive advantage and are turning to Mystery Shopping services to get an edge.
Mystery shopping services provide personnel that pose as regular shoppers and visit client and competitor businesses to assess customer service quality and collect other market related data.
Tobias Kurzmaier, business spokesman for International Service Check, http://www.internationalservicecheck.com/ explains that he has noticed an increase in global brands approaching International Service Check of late asking for help in improving their customer service levels.
“Companies have known for a long-time about the importance of customer service but only since the GFC have they started to act” he says.

According to Kurzmaier, organisations are seeing the benefits of mystery shopping services and how it can stimulate business growth.
