Survey Analysis on Internal Customer Service at PFG

From the Paper:

"Defining the problem is the first step to solving the problem (Gomez-Mejia , 2002 p.7). The PFG-Little Rock procurement department has received complaints about the adequacy of customer service provide by the procurement department associates to the outside sales associates. In investigating the symptoms associated with the complaints, sales associates indicate procurement associates respond with the correct information while exhibiting an appropriate attitude but not as quickly as preferred by the sales associate. With the analysis of the information, the question should be posed; does the response time of a procurement associate influence a sales associate's perception of adequate internal customer service?"
