Customer Satisfaction Measurement


Customer satisfaction is a business term which is used to capture the idea of measuring how satisfied an enterprise’s customers are with the organization’s efforts in a marketplace.
We can design and deploy customer satisfaction measurement systems, including facilitating customer focus groups.

Scope And Deliverables

Every organization has customers of some kind. The organization provides products (goods and/or services) of some kind to its customers through the mechanism of a marketplace. The products the organization provides are subject to competition whether by similar products or by substitution products.

The reason an organization is interested in the satisfaction of its customers is because customers purchase the organization’s products. The organization is interested in retaining its existing customers and increasing the number of its customers.

Customer satisfaction is an ambiguious and abstract concept and the actual manifestation of the state of satisfaction will vary from person to person. The state of satisfaction depends on a number of both psychological and physical variables. The level of satisfaction can also vary depending on other options the customer may have and other products against which the customer can compare the organization’s products.

Because satisfaction is basically a psychological state, it is a difficult thing to measure quantitatively. In other words, there are no units of satisfaction that have been defined. SatiStar’s usual measures of customer satisfaction involve a survey instrument with a set of statements using a Likert Technique (Strongly disagree, Disagree, Neither agree nor disagree, Agree, Strongly agree) or scale. The customer is asked to evaluate each statement and then select from a scale how much the customer agrees or disagrees with the statement.

Likert scales may be subject to distortion from several causes. Respondents may avoid using extreme response categories (central tendency bias); agree with statements as presented (acquiescence response bias); or try to portray themselves or their group in a more favorable light (social desirability bias).

SatiStar’s consultants are well versed in designing customer satisfaction instruments that avoid or account for these types of bias.

SatiStar's Experience Makes The Difference!

  • . . . worked extremely well with the departmental and site managers . . . goal oriented and met the objectives set within the quoted budget and ensured the results were attained for the Company.

  • The guys from SatiStar did more in one week than we were able to do in 6 months.

  • Achieving ISO registration was far less onerous than we thought, our employees really rallied to the cause. The registration effort really brought us closer together as a team, and SatiStar really came through for us when we needed them.

  • We started this process a year ago with Mickey helping us create a spaghetti map of our processes on the whiteboard, and then his team guided us through their streamlining methodology and got us to where we are today. Our processes now look nothing like the spaghetti map – and we’re much more efficient today

  • This projected cycle time reduction of over 80% annual cost savings amounting to over 3% of sales, one-time savings of roughly $10 million, and working capital reduction of roughly $30 million really have us excited!

  • An outstanding success with Motorola’s vendor audit! What made this an exceptional achievement is that it typically takes 4 to 5 attempts to pass this audit. SatiStar’s expertise made it easy to avoid all the extra attempts.
