The function of production is to change inputs to outputs, i. e. produce the goods and services that are to be bought by customers. After sale services are only available after a customer has made a purchase.
Pre-sales services are for customers who have not yet purchased. Customer service is the way in which the organisation deals with its customers. Effective customer service is the key to the success of every business. It is used to attract new customers and retain existing ones. It is an essential part of non-price competition and a means of differentiating the organisation from its competitors. Every business should aim to achieve continuous improvement in its customer service as a way of achieving sustainable competitive advantage.
