Voice of the Customer SWOT Analysis Strengths Residents feel the apartments are reasonably priced Residents enjoy greater independence and quieter atmosphere Apartments provided at no cost to summer employees, holding down employment costs for the college Weaknesses Poor communication of maintenance needs (all areas) Apartments are always in demand/occupied Further decreased maintenance opportunities due to policy allowing residents to request to remain in the same apartment if staying on campus across business seasons Maintenance Challenge: 25 year-old facilities of low-quality construction Facilities are dirty, broken, and have insect issues. (floors, walls, pests) Communication: slow response to maintenance requests Remote location lends to a sense of being forgotten Weaknesses (Cont’d) Residents lack a sense of ownership Inconsistent expectations and enforcement of those expectations between business seasons Negative impact on college reputation due to poor facility maintenance Opportunities Train residents on maintenance work request system Address cleanliness, pests, and maintenance of floors & walls Change apartment policy to designate maintenance seasons allowing greater maintenance opportunities. Update facilities’ amenities Threats Poor internal communication among stakeholders Poor maintenance coordination/prioritization Apartment facility standards below main campus standards Residents resist the inconvenience caused by maintenance workers’ presence in the apartments.
