American Express Exceeds Customer Expectations

The Business Issue

American Express recognized the state of their customer service was suffering. The Company set out to create an integrated solution that meets the needs of customers and exceeds their expectations in a way that’s driven through the eyes of the customer. This huge global company also wanted to be able to still deliver local, personalized service to its customers. American Express called this new focus “Relationship Care℠.”
