Customer Satisfaction

Customer satisfaction encompasses a huge range of topics but the ultimate goal is that by keeping customers satisfied, organizations can keep costs down, per-purchase amount up, and keep staff happier for longer too. There’s a great line that goes along the lines of “customer complaints are the schoolbooks from which we learn”.

In this section we have detailed articles which will guide you in the multi-headed beast that is customer satisfaction. Here, we feature articles on why a sale is not something you pursue, it is something that happens to you while you are immersed in serving and satisfying your customer. Companies who listen hardest, win. These articles, tools and assets will help you do just that.

What is Customer Satisfaction?

Customer satisfaction is often abbreviated to CSat. It is a measure of how well services or products, provided by an organization, meet or exceed the expectations of customers. Customer satisfaction is often evaluated by determining the number of customers, or the proportion of customers, whose experiences exceed specified satisfaction targets.
