SPACIOTEMPO UK LTD
Spaciotempo is a temporary building and warehousing specialist with offices and significant stock holdings in the UK, France and Spain.
Each year, Spaciotempo undertakes an in-depth survey of its entire customer base to measure satisfaction levels covering multiple criteria including the customer’s initial enquiry and administration, the installation period and aftersales.
The survey culminates in a total score for customer satisfaction.
Between 2013-2014, the business scored 84%, which rose to 86% for the period 2014-2015.
The areas where Spaciotempo scored highly were attributable to customer service, with professionalism, politeness, helpfulness, and punctuality of personnel among the highest scoring results.
Where scores are lower than expected, Spaciotempo implements immediate improvement plans and asks its customers what improvements they would like to see being made.
To ensure they provide the highest service levels to their clients, each Logistex customer’s site has a primary and secondary expert assigned. This structure ensures a rapid resolution of issues, as complex problems are escalated to the appropriate level of expertise.
As well as explicit feedback to the call originator, Logistex provide an innovative Twitter feed to help keep a broader audience within the client’s business informed.
Logistex also hold an annual User Group Meeting to allow customers to network with each other. Industry experts, as well as customers, give presentations on various topics that have been preselected by the group.
Both customers and Logistex gain from the User Group as it provides a forum for all to parties to engage and learn from each other.
Logistex measures overall customer satisfaction using what it calls the Net Promoter Score. This is calculated by asking customers how likely is it that they would recommend Logistex to a friend or colleague?
Respondents give a likeliness rating of between 1-10 and are grouped into detractors, passives or promoters depending on their score.
Subtracting the percentage of detractors from the percentage of promoters gives the Net Promoter Score.
According to Logistex, this is a very effective way of measuring customer satisfaction as it not only yields higher response rates due to the simplicity of the survey, but there is also no ambiguity about the responses and comments, meaning that it is much easier for managers to act upon the results.
