Our gratitude towards customers in allowing us to present a good variety of quality products and services, as well as our appreciation of our employees who are an important driving force behind the Company’s growth, reflects CP ALL Plc. and its Subsidiaries’ (“the Company”) pride in being a company from the east which harmonizes an international outlook in its business operations. These values are imbued in the corporate philosophy to which the Company has strongly committed, “Through happy employees, we desire to see smiles from customers”.

The Company commits to the Service, Assortment, Value, Environment, Quality and Cleanliness Principle or SAVEQC as operational guidelines for 7-Eleven convenient store, in addition to building on the foundational guidelines of license owners. Nevertheless, the Company has cascaded these operational guidelines to its Subsidiaries which operate business related to 7-Eleven, with adaptations to appropriately meet the nature of these businesses.
Aside from following the SAVEQC principle, the Company also builds relationships with customers by listening to their opinions and making improvement recommendations based on customer expectations and complaints, among others, through suggestions and grievance channels. In addition to the Company’s multi-channel communication, the Company pursued a proactive strategy to gather customer opinions by monitoring and analyzing information obtained through different social media platforms, in order to ensure that the Company is able to efficiently respond to customer demands.
The Company has leveraged customer feedback to support continuous improvements by communicating feedback to the relevant functions for their information and appropriate action weekly, creating motivation and inspiration for change and delivery of a variety of services. This also contributes to higher reported customer satisfaction.
