What is an NPS Score?
NPS stands for Net Promoter Score. NPS is often held up as the gold standard customer experience metric. First developed in 2003 by Bain and Company, it’s now used by millions of businesses to gauge the customer’s overall satisfaction with a company’s product or service and the customer’s loyalty to the brand. An NPS score is awarded after a research process that includes exhaustive questioning and interviewing of a company’s customers. After the collection of data, an NPS is calculated and awarded. An NPS can be from -100 to +100.
Any score above a Zero is considered an acceptable NPS. Scores above +50 indicate excellence in customer service and high customer loyalty. A score of 100% is very rare and almost never awarded.
Why Did EB Industries Get a Perfect Score?
Our NPS 100 citation mentioned a number of points that lead to our +100% rating.
- Responsiveness: 100% of our customers reported we meet or exceed their expectations;
- Service and Care: 100% of our customers reported we meet or exceed their expectations;
- Ease of Doing Business: 100% of our customers reported we meet or exceed their expectations;
- Design and Production Speed: 100% of our customers reported we meet or exceed their expectations;
- Problem Resolution: 100% of our customers reported we meet or exceed their expectations.
While an NPS rating is based primarily on empirical data, anecdotal data is also collected.
I think more than anything else it is their ability to jump on things and their quickness to solve problems and collaborate.
The people who work there are exceptional. They get things done for us in a timely fashion.
Their final summary was especially telling:
EBI’s value proposition is defined by strong customer service. Lead times, technical expertise, and quality of services also emerged as top strengths.
