What is Net Promoter Score (NPS)?

Net Promoter Score (NPS) is a metric used to measure customer loyalty and satisfaction. It provides insights into how likely customers are to recommend a company’s product or service to others. NPS is often used in contact centers as a way to assess customer satisfaction levels and the overall quality of customer interactions.

In the context of a contact center, NPS is typically measured through customer surveys or feedback collected after an interaction with a contact center agent. Customers are asked to rate their likelihood of recommending the company on a scale from 0 to 10, with 0 being highly unlikely and 10 being highly likely. Based on their response, customers are classified into three categories: promoters (rating 9-10), passives (rating 7-8), and detractors (rating 0-6).

The NPS score is calculated by subtracting the percentage of detractors from the percentage of promoters. Passives are disregarded in the calculation. The resulting NPS score can range from -100 to +100. A positive NPS score indicates that the majority of customers are promoters, while a negative score suggests that there are more detractors.

Contact centers can use NPS to identify areas for improvement, track customer satisfaction trends over time, and benchmark performance against industry standards. By analyzing NPS feedback and focusing on addressing the concerns of detractors, contact centers can enhance customer experiences, increase customer loyalty, and drive business growth.

LiveVox Surveys

With a special focus on customer satisfaction measurement, the LiveVox Surveys solution provides clients with the necessary tools to design, run and analyze customer surveys. There are three typical deployment scenarios. The classic post-call survey permits customers to opt-in to the survey process before talking with an agent; because the agent is not aware such a survey will occur, the interaction is not artificially skewed. Secondly, outbound surveys can run as a campaign automatically via IVR or SMS. Thirdly, agents can conduct live surveys, using a guided script, with a customer on the phone.

LiveVox surveys are designed with your end goals in mind by our team of experts to help you better understand customer satisfaction. For example, Net Promoter Score (NPS) is acknowledged as a simple yet effective technique to quickly gauge overall satisfaction levels. NPS asks customers to rate how likely they would recommend your services to a friend or family member.

These tools are also interchangeably used to measure and determine Net Promoter Score (NPS), Voice of the Customer (VOC), and Closed-loop feedback. They can be opted-in to at the start of a call, sent via SMS or email, or conducted via IVR
