Recently I had a conversation with a friend who is a gifted businessman.
We were discussing how to give our customers what they need … not what I think they need.
He asked me a question.
“What’s your secret sauce”?
It was such a strange question.
My blank stare prompted him to continue.
“Like the Colonel’s secret recipe for Kentucky fried chicken with eleven herbs and spices”.
He still was not making any sense to me.
“Like the secret ingredient in Coca Cola … and the description is still locked in vault in Louisville, Kentucky by the way.”
Finally I stopped him and asked him to explain in simple straight forward terms a guy from West Texas could understand … what he was driving at.
He replied “What do you provide your customers that makes their life better?”
And before I could reply he said,
“And why do they do business with you instead of someone else?”
Now it was my turn … things were churning through my brain.
Is it the water treatment equipment?
Sure, Culligan offers top of the line products, but that isn’t the answer.
Is it the results?
A Culligan total home solution does make better water for drinking, cleaning and bathing.
But that wasn’t the answer either.
Finally I stopped and smiled and said “HEY CULLIGAN MAN!”
He grinned back and said “BINGO”!
And we talked.
The reason people choose Culligan is the famous Hey Culligan Man service.
At AmarilloWater it’s not about selling equipment … it’s about taking care of the customer.
Some companies have a separate sales department … we don’t … everyone at AmarilloWater is directly involved with customer service.
A Culligan Man has to get certified by the State of Texas to become a Certified Water Treatment Specialist.
In fact most of the service tech team are Class III Water Treatment Specialists … the highest level of certification available.
And it’s not just the Culligan Man who gets certified.
Culligan women are also certified Water Treatment Specialists.
A Culligan Man also participates in professional training courses through Culligan International along with in-shop intensives to keep their skills sharp.
The Culligan Man is your local water expert.
And his workplace is your home.
That’s the secret sauce.
It’s also a sauce we have been dishing up in Amarillo for almost 75 years.
