Therefore, internal customer satisfaction is as important for businesses as external customer satisfaction. Especially in service enterprises where the human element is very important, it is possible to evaluate the personnel as internal customer.

Therefore, creating a competitive advantage can only be achieved by ensuring internal customer (employee) and external customer satisfaction and by ensuring a positive interaction between the server and the buyer of the service.
