Bill Howe Family of Companies Hires Customer Service Expert to Improve Company

San Diego plumbers receive ongoing training to improve customer service to support Bill Howe Mission

November 26, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing has a distinguished history of offering the best in services for San Diego plumbing, heating and air conditioning, and restoration and flood customers. For 35 years, they have been industry leaders and set the precedence for service companies in their community. Not only focused on delivering the highest quality of workmanship, the company focuses on continually delivering the highest quality in customer service as well. Because of the philosophy for building relationships, not just customers, the San Diego plumber’s boast a 90 percent repeat customer base.

The Bill Howe Family of Companies recently hired Barbara Khozam, an award winning Motivational Speaker and Trainer specializing in Custer Service, Leadership and Communication. She has been hired to “educate and empower” the Bill Howe employees in San Diego. Plumbers, HVAC techs and remediation specialists, as well as the office support staff, all benefit from the special training from the author of, How Organizations Deliver BAD Customer Service (AND Strategies that turn it Around).

While Khozam will be instructing all the 142 employees, managers and owners at the San Diego plumbing company, the field technicians take away the most. Experts in their industries and trades and educated on how to repair even the most complicated plumbing, heating or water damage problem, they can be unprepared to deliver effective customer service and communication. The training seminars allow field employees to become comfortable and knowledgeable in how to engage with customers to uphold the Bill Howe mission: Provide every customer with ethical and high quality work and customer service always aiming for 100 percent satisfaction. And, with the assistance of Barbara Khozam, the Bill Howe Family of Companies seeks to update “satisfaction” to 100 percent happiness on every service.

“Our work speaks for itself,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We train and educate all of our employees to ensure the safety and happiness of our customers. But making sure that our employees are also communicating with ease and going beyond good to great customer care is so important and through Barbara’s courses, we are achieving success.”

The company will host Khozam each month at the company wide shop meeting and in the monthly office meetings. She focuses on teaching what great customer service is and engages employees in role playing scenarios to teach them how they can carry out these practices in the field and over the phone.

The Bill Howe Family of Companies spends a great deal of resources on ways to continually improve in their industry and community. They encourage reviews and customer communication through social media and direct communication with Bill Howe’s customer service representatives, managers and owners. Bill and Tina Howe are involved in all day-to-day operations, including all customer feedback.

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
