What Is Customer Satisfaction Research?
Customer satisfaction research focuses on the experience and perception customers have when using a company’s products or services. The research process begins by identifying the best method for collecting customer experience data based on a company’s needs.For some businesses, this will be quantitative research, which is the collection of statistical data through telephone, online, or mail surveys. For other businesses, this will be qualitative research, which provides insights into customer reactions, emotions, and thoughts using focus groups.
Data is then analyzed to measure levels of customer satisfaction and returned with suggestions and recommended action items for immediate product or service improvement.
