12 Trends in Voice of the Customer for 2012 - Part 3
Measures and Questions
With a wealth of experience now present in the area, choosing a metric to measure customer satisfaction has moved on from being a one size fits all solution. Organisations will begin to look for the right metric for them from the many which are available such as Net Promoter Score (NPS) and Customer Effort Score (CES).
Full Service Suppliers
As the Voice of the Customer market matures and becomes more complex the need to understand how to interact with customers will grow. There is a need for a full service which includes the provision of both technology and consultancy to ingrain the system throughout the organisation.Vendors will use their knowledge to provide a consultancy service which will ensure there is the required skills transfer for organisations to manage their system going forward.
Increased speed of insight collection and analysis
As systems become more sophisticated the collection of customer feedback will become a quicker process with more automation. By choosing the right channel for the right time customers will be more inclined to give feedback, for example using an event such as a delivery to trigger a survey going out. Visualisations will allow insight to be analysed and displayed rapidly, this will enable immediate actions to be taken based on the insight.
