Metrics that Matter: Customer Satisfaction

Presented by

Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet

About this talk

Customer satisfaction and cost per ticket are the yin and yang of a service organization. These metrics are in constant tension, and every service organization grapples with how to strike an appropriate balance between the two. With no restraints on spending, it is relatively easy for a support organization to “spend its way” to high customer satisfaction. Conversely, if customer satisfaction is not an issue, a support organization can reduce its costs almost indefinitely. Every support organization should be tracking customer satisfaction on an ongoing basis because it is a measure of how effectively a support organization conducts its business. Moreover, every support manager should be regularly asking: If customer satisfaction is one of the "foundation metrics", how can we affect it? How can we improve it? Put another way, if customer satisfaction is suffering, what is the diagnosis? Learn how to capture and calculate customer satisfaction in this new MetricNet webcast! Additionally, Jeff Rumburg will discuss the tradeoff between cost and quality, and share the key drivers of customer satisfaction along with benchmarking ranges for a representative cross-section of North American support organizations.
