A Fifth of Contact Centres Don’t Use Post-Contact Surveys

Our results show that 20.6% of contact centres don’t use post-contact surveys, which is surprising, as knowing what customers feel about the service they receive and identifying areas for improvement is vital to business success.

There are several possible reasons for this, but it is most likely that these contact centres are using other means to establish quality of service, so although the number is surprising, it doesn’t necessarily mean these contact centres are not collecting insights on customer experience and quality of service.

Fingers on the Pulse

39.4% of contact centres are asking customers to complete a post-contact survey after every interaction.

By doing this, these contact centres run the risk of over-surveying their customers, leading to survey fatigue.

This survey was done in partnership with NICE
