My department uses letter, phone and email to communicate with customers. The letters are used to remind customers to pay and to send welcome letters and information such as terms and conditions. We tend to email order information such as confirmations. We use the phone to collect cash because it allows us to achieve a one-stop solution and hopefully obtain the payment over the

phone. I think some of the credit controllers avoid using the phone because they dont like confrontation, but it should be used more because it is so effective. We also use personal visits for key customers but we do not use social media very much. This could be improved upon. We use all channels to communicate with internal stakeholders, which shows that our communications are better here. (144 words) Using the Shannon and Weaver (2010) model of communication (appendix X) analysis of the communication channel within the credit department was undertaken (appendix Y). This revealed that, of the 5 channels available, only 2 were used on key customers.

As a high power, high influence stakeholder (appendix Z), adoption of other channels would be worth considering, in order to maximise communication effectiveness with this key stakeholder. In contrast, all available channels were used between internal departments, predominantly the customer care and sales teams. This indicates open communication (Reuben & Steward 2006) with another high influence stakeholder. It could be argued that the use of postal communication is obsolete because it slows the message speed. However, its permanency reduces noise, which distorts the message. It should therefore be retained for non-urgent but important messaging, such as changes to policy and procedures. (140 words) Assignment format
