About the course

Customer surveys are an invaluable tool for understanding the customer's perception of your service delivery. Findings from a survey program provide critical information about your support center's performance -- information that can serve as a basis for continuous improvement projects and ultimately lead to long-term customer loyalty. Surveys are also an important tool for researching customer needs and expectations. However, a survey program is only valuable if the surveying effort is properly designed and executed.

This interactive course is designed for customer service or customer support managers and business analysts who are conducting their own customer satisfaction surveying program or are considering outsourcing the surveying effort. Attendees will get the background needed to build and conduct a successful customer satisfaction survey program. For service organizations that are considering outsourcing the surveying effort, this course will provide valuable information for selecting the right vendor of surveying services and for being a successful partner in the surveying program. The techniques presented can also be applied to other types of surveying, such as employee satisfaction
