The cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion score, or CSAT as it's often called, intends to mea­sure a customer's sat­is­fac­tion with the ser­vice received.

There can be a large vari­ance between the CSAT scores of com­pa­nies in a given indus­try, or at the same com­pany over time. Many com­pa­nies that boast high cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion are those with CSAT scores in the upper 80's or 90's, though how this is mea­sured can be very tricky.
