ELRUS Performance from a Customer’s Perspective

ELRUS Aggregates Systems is an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of aggregate equipment that is serious about customer satisfaction. For a business in the aggregate crushing industry to be profitable, it must maximize uptime, as downtime kills profitability. ELRUS builds dependable equipment, stocks a wide array of parts, consumables and critical spares, and has Service Technicians available 24 x 7 who know how to repair the equipment they sell and service.

To measure their customer satisfaction results and improve their profitability, ELRUS hired Client Insight Inc. to interview their customers and inquire about the customer experience. Client Insight’s customer feedback process measures ELRUS’ customer loyalty and elicits the factors that influence their purchase decisions and identifies what customers value. The customer feedback and results below are compiled from more than 1,100 customer interviews completed since March 2012. ELRUS understands the importance of customer feedback and uses the business insight to improve operational productivity and customer satisfaction.
