Using Client Feedback to Deliver Outstanding Service
Using Client Feedback to Deliver Outstanding Service > Establishing Outstanding Service
We want to know exactly how our clients feel about our service, without bias. We use the third-party Net Promoter Score (NPS) system to capture client feedback after every service call and measure how happy our clients are with our services.
As an example, the average North American company has an NPS of 10 out of 100. Some companies do much better than average: Costco, for example, has a score of 79 and Amazon has a score of 69.
Central Office Systems was ranked #1 in North America for July, August, and October 2019 NPS, with a final 2018 NPS of 92.16.
Our loyal clients are the basis of everything we do at Central Office Systems; we make it a priority each and every day to put client satisfaction first. Our NPS and the lasting relationships we’ve built with our clients are the greatest rewards and benchmarks of our work.
