BORUSAN LOJİSTİK AWARDED ISO 10002 CERTIFICATE
January 8, 2008, Istanbul: Borusan Lojistik has crowned its works to date in the field of customer satisfaction with the ISO 10002 Customer Complaints Management System Certificate. The “Voice of Customer (VOC) Management System”, which has been implemented since 2003, has played a significant role in the success of Borusan Lojistik, the first and only company in the logistics sector to obtain this certificate.
Borusan Lojistik uses the “Voice of Customer” (VOC) model, which emerged as a result of a 6 Sigma project completed in 2003 under the leadership of Borusan Holding, in order to listen to the customer’s voice and increase customer satisfaction. With this mechanism, all kinds of feedback (complaints, thank yous and suggestions) from the customers are evaluated quickly and analyzed and proactive solutions are presented in answer to the research conducted. In particular, quality and 6 Sigma applications are being used to trigger the necessary improvements for complaints to be reduced and not to be repeated.
Speaking about the awarding of the ISO 10002 Customer Complaints Management System Certificate, Borusan Lojistik Deputy General Manager of Sales İbrahim Dölen said the following;
“Borusan Lojistik shifted its route, in line with its restructuring process in 2002, towards a journey of excellence. One of Borusan Lojistik’s key objectives on this route is to manage innovation, speed, costs and quality effectively in all its processes to create added value for its customers. By using modern management techniques towards this purpose, not only does it makes a difference in the sector, but it is also regarded as an example by many companies outside the sector. In surveys on customer satisfaction in industrial products and services carried out by Borusan Lojistik as a result of its sensitivity towards customer satisfaction, Borusan Lojistik achieved an index level above average with 75 points in 2005 and 78 points in 2006, while average Trim index figures were 70 globally, 68 in Europe, and 66 in Turkey. We have been awarded with the certificate after enriching our activities under the VOC Model that we apply to improve customer satisfaction with the ISO 10002 standard. We are also proud of being the first and only institution in our sector to receive this certificate.”
