Cisco-Eagle Customer Satisfaction Survey: Overview of 2004 Results

When you depend on a company to deliver the kind of material handling systems we do for you, it’s good to know its overall performance. This is the second time we’ve released our confidential customer satisfaction data—something few companies are willing to do.

These results cover surveys distributed between September 2003 and August 2004.

In the last year, a total of 1,605 Customer Satisfaction Surveys have been sent out with 209 responses received. No single person is surveyed more than once in a six month period. All orders over $1,000 were surveyed.

Each survey has the sales team identification and the survey number printed on the page in a bar code format so that this information can be scanned into our database. This allows our sales and implementation teams to gauge their individual performances.

Survey Results Summary

Questions 1-5 and 9 all receive a numbered rating from 1 to 5. If the percentage of the combined "4" and "5" ratings for a question is less than 80%, then it is noted as an area of concern. Scores of “1”, “2” and “3” are considered to be inadequate. We consider a neutral response to be a negative, since our goal is not to be average, but to exceed expectations.

These percentages reflect the percentage of respondents who graded our performance for the question involved as a 4 or 5.

In other words, this is the percentage of respondents who believed our performance was outstanding.
