Apple and other companies that are the top performers are going head strong because of their influence built up through the years, also their marketing and management systems, and their customer support. For example, an iPhone has a better after sales service than a Gionee. They replace the iPhone completely if there is a damaging issue plaguing the phone, however most companies would opt for a solution and try to repair the damages, that takes time and may be deal breaking for the customer. And to make things even easier, data sharing and reaching out to customer bases is easier than ever, mostly through cloud services. The cloud services work under the canopy of Apple too, that makes employee satisfaction guaranteed.
