Enterprise developed a platform of Total Quality Management (TQM) meets extremely satisfied consumers. In essence there is no middle compass, either consumers are completely satisfied overall, or completely dissatisfied. The company's approach to customer satisfaction is to create a consensus of superior customer service, which in my opinion goes far beyond the customer service from their competitors.

Organizations establish a business model that embraces constructive feedback, in Enterprise Rent-A- Car's case; they integrated an Enterprise Service Quality Index (ESQi) to measure the quality of customer service of each local branch via telephone surveys from thousands of customers. Upon a customer's feedback of being completely satisfied, Enterprise earns a higher ranking based on an implied rating system of the consumers' level of satisfaction.
