Customer Satisfaction, Loyalty and Advocacy

To successfully manage your customer satisfaction, loyalty and advocacy—not to mention your bottom line—you need an accurate understanding of your customers’ experiences with your company and brands. For in-depth, actionable insights, companies that are industry leaders have chosen us as the leading voice of the customer experience.

The reasons are compelling.

At GfK Customer Loyalty, we have proven, results-oriented methods for measuring and managing customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Proven metrics: GfK Loyalty Plus SM provides a multidimensional measurement of the intensity of customer relationships that is a leading indicator of business outcomes. GfK makes satisfaction, promoter and loyalty metrics more actionable with proprietary analytics.

The most accurate prioritization: GfK Loyalty uses a fact-based consultancy approach, providing prioritized, deployment-ready insights on how to improve your customers’ experience. If your satisfaction, promoter or loyalty scores are not improving, GfK KDA+ SM (Key Driver Analysis Plus) will accurately indicate the strongest drivers of customer loyalty. We provide two priority lists: a short list of powerful enhancers that differentiate your business and create loyalty; and a short list of dissatisfiers to help prevent attrition.
