This score reflects how many of our customers would willingly recommend our services to a friend or colleague...Consistently each week, City Hire reaches out to a handful of clients who have recently experienced our services. We make a point of varying our feedback sources by speaking to a balance of site operatives, buyers and accounts administrators across our entire client base. All feedback is shared in management meetings to ensure that the team is 'on the pulse' and never losing touch with our core mission.

The results from tracking this number are inspirational…! Team accountability, constant improvements, driving down wastage and, most importantly of all, maximum effective use of our hire equipment on your projects! The biggest expense of hiring occurs when you are wasting time without your crucial equipment on site. There a number of common root causes for this, including: delayed delivery, breakdowns on faulty equipment, errors in site address and incomplete or wrong equipment selection.City Hire constantly monitors and tracks these inefficiencies/errors in our relentless mission to ‘outlaw’ them! Any occurrences are recorded, shared with the entire team every week and detract from the overall Trip Efficiency score of activity for that period.
Your job is a demanding one! As a construction buyer or site operative you cannot afford to waste time placing your order. Understanding these pressures, City Hire tracks our response times to your phonecalls through the day on a live dashboard.These results are captured on a weekly basis and published to identify any trends and constantly improve.

This number is watched vigilantly following very definite and candid feedback from site managers!

To ensure City Hire doesn’t focus on new delivery priorities at the expense of delayed collections, we track and report on this KPI each week.
