We see to it that our reports are delivered in a timely manner to enable decision-makers to apply the necessary improvements in the quickest time possible.


1. Manpower Integrity

All your stores but one are hitting expected revenue targets. There have been issues reported by a number of employees at this underperforming store that lead to loss of sales. What you need now is to understand where the difficulties lie so that you are able to work with your employees to improve the stores’ performance.

Our retail mystery shopping services can be used to look into Loss Prevention issues as well.  We help identify the issues that cause customers to leave your brand. See Level HX can work directly with your human resources department in order to understand the execution of training programs on the ground and at the point of sale.

2. Competitive Intelligence

It’s not only your business that can be assessed by our retail mystery shoppers. See Level HX also offers a way to give you a comprehensive report on how your competitors are doing in terms of customer service, pricing, promotions and products.

We give your business an edge by identifying the strengths and weaknesses of your own brand and your competitors. Benchmarking your performance with competing businesses can help improve your brand’s overall performance and provide strategic direction.  Understanding the landscape allows you to invest wisely and direct the future of the business strategically.

3. Online User Experience

Websites and social media are now the main sources for accessing information and obtaining feedback from consumers. Your online presence has become a major force in driving customer satisfaction.

SeeLevel HX offers retail mystery shopping services exclusively for assessing online performance, user-friendliness, user experience and efficiency. Physical and online interactions should receive the same level of importance, and we can help you meet those expectations.

We use the UX metrics appropriate for your brand to conduct our surveys for online channels, enabling us to identify areas to capitalize on and improve upon for a seamless online customer experience.

4. Shop and Location Auditing

A brand’s success doesn’t rely solely on product quality and customer service. Location and shop design both play an important role in brand satisfaction. Your company’s environment as a whole – the colors of the walls, the lighting, the space, the arrangement of shelves, and even the scent of a store – can all affect customer experience.

The location and the store’s ambiance should mirror each other to give customers the experience they’re expecting to receive. Our retail mystery shopping services can help ensure your shops utilize the right combination of both.

5. Brand Standards

Every brand has their own operational standards that must be followed in all stores, whether company-owned or franchised. Ensuring brand consistency across all stores encourages compliance to brand standards which results in higher customer loyalty.

See Level HX’s retail mystery shopping services can be used to objectively assess brand compliance among your chain stores.  We can help evaluate practices for handling money, food safety, inventory control, material promotion, and most importantly, customer service.

6. Retail Mystery Calling

Telephone lines are quite effective for handling customer complaints. One of our retail mystery shopping services delves into assessing this communication channel to ensure that customer concerns are handled properly and in the most effective manner.

Customer representatives are trained to handle these complaints and we are here to evaluate the way that they were trained.  Often we focus on the handling of irate customers, answering questions, escalating issues and promoting brand offers.
