They invest in fancy advertising, celebrity endorsements, loyalty programs, web sites and much more. The result? Most companies are still not building strong connections with either current or prospective customers.

- Net Promoter Score (NPS)

Your customers are also asked to provide free text suggestions and recommendations for how their experience could be improved, or to provide praise where there expectations have been exceeded. Finally we offer your customers the option of providing their contact information so that you can speak directly with them about their experiences and include their feedback in case studies and testimonials. Why not complete our Sample Survey to try it out for yourself.
We also invite you to complete a Self-Evaluation Assessment. This element of the program is your opportunity to demonstrate, through your responses to our questions, how effective you think your customer service is. Once both the Self-Evaluation and Customer Assessment process has been completed the Awards Team can begin to analyse the results.
Step Three: Review, Recognise and Reward
Finally we analyse feedback from your customers and grade their responses using worlds best practice customer service standards as a benchmark. Once our analysis of your Self-Evaluation and Customer Assessment data has been completed the Awards Team will contact you to discuss the results.
Whether you win an award or not is entirely dependent on the feedback we receive from your customers, however every company participating in our program receives a detailed management report that provides insights on your the customer service experienced by your customers. You and your colleagues can then use that information to ensure your high standards are maintained over time and/or to make improvements where necessary. So whatever the end result, everybody is a winner.
Once our initial assessment and award presentation has been completed, your online survey remains open 24/7/365 so that you can continue to listen to your customers voices throughout the year so your finger is always on the pulse.
