Behind The Design
A new series featuring the amazing people who design and craft all our Pilates Equipment!
This month we’re featuring the Customer and Technical Support Department.
Throughout the year our Behind the Design series has taken you “inside” our manufacturing processes and given a glimpse into the people who are responsible for the great products we make. This month we’re doing it a bit differently and taking a look at our Customer and Technical Support Department. Why? Because they are a critical component in supporting, maintaining, and promoting positive relationships with the most important part of our business – you, the customer.
I know what you’re saying; “we all support our customers”. So, what makes Balanced Body so different?
I think it’s all about how we see our customers.
The largest part of our business is made up of Mom and Pop (mostly Mom) type studios. This means most of our sales are one Reformer at a time and we know if these customers are successful, we can be successful.
Additionally, we know that we are a key factor in providing opportunities – through education and outreach – that may not otherwise be available to many of our customers. Providing this opportunity excites and motivates all of us.
We also understand our unique and quirky relationship with our customers. Even though instructors are our typical customers, it is their customers that we need to satisfy. In a sense, their customers are our customers. We need to provide a product that highlights the skill of our instructors while creating a rewarding experience for their clients at the same time.
For me, as the CEO and founder for Balanced Body, my job is to serve your needs, so, if you were to look at BB’s org chart, you would see that I work for you and that everything flows from there.
In the bigger picture, we feel we have a responsibility to the Pilates Community, Society, and our planet. In the next year, we plan to double our solar power capacity to approximately 2,000 panels. We support and embrace diversity in society and the workplace, and we are supporting refugee programs in addition to the Arts programs.
The bottom line, we always strive to take a 360° look at our customers and do whatever we can to contribute to their success. And our Technical/Customer Support people are absolutely key in that regard.
