St Albans, Hertfordshire – Service Management Group (SMG), a global customer experience (CX), employee engagement and brand research partner to more than 500 brands, has been selected by Topps Tiles to amplify its customer experience programme. Topps Tiles is utilising SMG’s robust CX technology platform and best-in-class services to elevate its in-store and digital customer feedback management programme.

With 367 stores nationwide, Topps Tiles is the UK’s leading tile specialist, supplying tiles and associated accessories for the refurbishment of UK domestic housing to both a trade and retail customer base.
