Mystery Audits to Measure Customer Experience, Retail Operations Compliance & Inventory

Mystery shopping meaning at the helm of it is pretty simple. It’s the process of employing an auditor to visit target stores or customer touchpoints incognito. He poses as a casual shopper to gather key information about the quality of goods and services.

Our mystery audits enable you to precisely measure your customers’ experience. Be it at your retail stores, service locations, or customer touchpoints.

All our audits are driven by in house technology to ensure the accuracy and reliability of data collection. Our highly experienced and trained secret shoppers and auditors help find deep insights to help you improve your business.

Quality Metrics

With our automated training and certification processes, we ensure top quality shoppers only are deployed on projects, and verify each response received for accuracy and insightfulness by measuring the quality before reporting to clients.


In a customer experience audit program, Factors like store ambiance, staff courteousness, communication skills, facilities and infrastructure, the billing process, and other aspects of customer service are paramount.

Our customer experience management audit process objectively gauges the end customer’s experience by simulating a customer visit by an auditor to your end customer touchpoint.
Mystery Auditors who are an exact fit to the profile of your target audience visit locations secretly.
They tap the key parameters of their experience on dozens of objective and subjective parameters to conduct customer experience audit.
We are one of the top customer audit companies in India having done more than 300 audits for our clients.
With our In house technological expertise, we collect the data in a real-time, reliable, transparent, and media-rich way.
A weighted average indexing process then translates these measures into an index that you can use to objectively evaluate the quality of audits at your locations.
Measurements and insights are reported at a location level, and can also be aggregated at any level of organizational structure or geography.
The detailed analysis in reports provides a customer’s view of their experience.
Majorly a Brand wants to get Price check audits for two motives –
a) Measuring pricing variations, standards of own products to drive pricing discipline
b) Measuring the pricing of competitors to create pricing strategies and schemes and offers.
Bringing price discipline in the sales channel is critical for avoiding customer dissatisfaction and confusion, discouraging price-hunting shopping behavior, and for maintaining the company’s financial interest.
TopHawks conducts what is called Price Checks, or SRP (Suggested Retail Price) audits or MOP (Market Operating Price) audits in which a customer attempts to purchase a product at the best possible negotiated price.
If the price offered violates a brand’s pricing guidelines, brands can use various incentives/penalties methods to bring partners back in compliance.
A similar process can also be deployed for competitor products to discover their pricing strategies and promotional schemes and offers.

The experience of interaction with staff in an end customer touchpoint, be it a store or a restaurant is the biggest factor of a customer’s overall experience.

A good team member can maximize interaction and conversion and lead to an increment in sales, whereas a poor quality person can do the opposite.

Tophawks as a Store Staff Audit company in India evaluates numerous aspects such as grooming, personal hygiene, communication skills, selling skills, product knowledge, and demonstration skills. Products and services like troubleshooting, negotiating and closing skills to identify training needs, evaluate training impact, or to assess if the right set of people are deployed.
