What is satisfaction management?
As organizations become more customer centric satisfaction management is a process that helps them to measure how well they deliver on customer requirements. Central to the idea of satisfaction management and its measurement is that strong customer relationships promote higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty. This in turn increases customer lifetime value which has a positive impact on market share, ROI, profitability.
The satisfaction management process provides data that is essential to making critical business decisions, such as:
- What product and service issues are the most important to our customers?
- How do we perform on these issues?
- How do these issues impact current and future product development and service strategies?
- How can we improve our understanding of the customer’s perspective?
- How can we obtain actionable information that will help us achieve total customer satisfaction?
- How can we obtain valuable insight into the marketplace and our competitive environment?
Companies have traditionally relied on customer satisfaction indexes and surveys to provide data regarding customer needs and satisfaction levels with products and services. Much of this data is static and does not reflect the changing needs of a dynamic marketplace. This type of data is insufficient when improvements or real changes need to be made to corporate strategy.
