The Customer Gap


Customer gap is the difference between customer expectations and perceptions. Expectations are the reference points customers have coming into a service experience; perceptions reflect the service as actually received. The idea is that firms will want to close this gap—between what is expected and what is received—to satisfy their customers and build long-term relationships with them. To close this all-important customer gap, the provider gaps need to be closed.
