John Abraham, general manager of Net Promoter programs at Satmetrix., was recently quoted as saying “With the economy in turmoil, companies are focusing on customer experience and retention more than ever. These benchmarks give companies a way to compare themselves against other companies in key industries and understand who is best-in-class when it comes to customer loyalty and organic growth potential.”

According to www.netpromoter.com, “The average firm sputters along at an NPS efficiency of only 5 to 10%.” A score of 73 places Formaspace among the highest-rated companies for consumer loyalty in the United States whose scores have been made public, including Apple, Harley Davidson, BMW and Cisco.

 

What is a Net Promoter Score?

Net Promoter®, developed by Satmetrix, Bain & Company, and noted loyalty consultant Fred Reichheld, determines customer satisfaction based upon scaled feedback.  The concept was first popularized through Reichheld’s book The Ultimate Question. Using a single carefully-worded question with a response scaled from one to ten, companies divide those customers that respond into three categories: promoters, passives, and detractors. The NPS (Net Promoter Score) is determined by the percentage of customers who are promoters minus the percentage of customers who are detractors based on a ten point scale.
