Background on Comparing Customer Satisfaction Assessment Tools

In fact, many customer satisfaction tools exist. And let’s learn about some of them.

According to Gert van Deesel, writing for CheckMarket:

“In market research. we love acronyms almost as much as the IT world does. Here are three of them: CSAT, CES and NPS®. Indeed, all three measure customer satisfaction. So what do they do? And how do they differ? Can they be used in conjunction?”

Customer Satisfaction Score (CSAT). As a typical question: How would you rate your experience with your … (e.g. recent support requirement)? With the CSAT, the score represents the sum of respondents that answered somewhat or very satisfied.”

Customer Effort Score (CES). As a typical question: The organization made it easy for me to handle my issue. After aggregating the replies, a high average indicates that your company is making things easy for your customers.”

Net Promoter Score (NPS®). As a typical question: On a scale of 0-10 how likely would it be for you to recommend [company name] to a friend or colleague? The Net Promoter Score = % of promoters (respondents that gave a 9-10) – % of detractors (respondents that gave a 0-6)

“In some instance, these measures could stand on their own. But they can also complement each other. For example, we could imagine a survey to measure the satisfaction among attendees of a recent event. When building a feedback survey, you could ask the respondent to fill out some Customer Satisfaction scores (CSAT). And split up into different areas of the event (satisfaction about content, timing, speakers quality, location, etc.). In addition, you could ask the CES question to measure the efforts your customers needed to sign up for this event. At the end, you could ask how likely your customers are to recommend your company.”
