CSAT is Still the Most Used Metric in the Contact Centre Industry


Despite being a very old metric, 78% of industry professionals noted that they still use Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) in their contact centre.

In fact, according to our poll,  CSAT surpassed the next “most-used” metric in the contact centre, Agent Utilisation, by 13% and First Contact Reolution by 14%.

In relative terms, the “new-boy” on the metric block, Net Promoter Score, is not as yet anywhere near CSAT in terms of popularity, only being used by a third of our participants contact centres.
