Client Record Cards

Not only is it a requirement by law and for insurance purposes to maintain a client record card system but they should contain useful information to help you give good service, aid your marketing and build your business.

Always record the clients name, address, post code and contact number & mobile number. You may need to contact her to inform her that the technician is ill for example. You could telephone or text to remind her of an appointment or to enquire why she missed an appointment and maybe reschedule. You could also advise her of forthcoming promotions or to send Christmas/ Birthday cards. It is very important that you note a clients correct title, Miss; Mrs; Ms etc. clients can get very upset when given the wrong title! Month & day date of birthday.
