Our lecturer Luciano Manunta talks about the figure of the Mystery Guest on TV8

The professional figure

It is indisputable that the quality of an establishment is directly proportional to the satisfaction of each customer. But how can one get a complete analytical picture of one's business, with the knowledge of providing the best quality of each service offered?
This is where the activity of the Mystery Guest comes into play. The Mystery Guest, in the guise of customer X, carries out a careful analysis identifying strengths but also critical points of the establishment in order to improve its performance. He then uses all the services offered, often creating extreme situations, to test the staff's interaction skills as well.
The figure of the Mystery Guest therefore operates incognito, for the benefit of all those hotels or, in general, companies offering goods and services; he provides his high level of professionalism and his strong analytical and critical skills, evaluating every aspect of the company through the attentive eyes of a typical customer, while measuring its quality.
