CASE: XEROX CORPORATION: THE CUSTOMER-SATISFACTION PROGRAM

u come out with a guarantee for its products that would be unique(P13,para7), which would lead to
u greater customer satisfaction and would also drive the organization to greater levels of performance(page13 para5) , so as to achieve
u the immediate objective of increasing sales by 5%-10% while applying the guarantee to all Xerox products for a period of three years and servicing them directly(page14,end Para).
