  1. 1. Vocalcom Satmetrix : 12 millions of French customers switched to concurrence after a bad “customer experience”12 millions of French customers changed of provider in essentials sectors in the last six months aftera bad “customer experience”. This is the outcome of the last benchmarking study Net Promoter doneby the company Satmetrix, specialized in software and services oriented customer experience. Thethree common causes of customer infidelity are prices and unjustified additional costs, then badcustomer service. Brands troubles are not limited to this infidelity: nearly 40% of the persons leavingtheir provider talked it down to their entourage; it is four times higher than the average.Electronics on the lead, energy providers at bay.Conducted on nearly 9000 customers and focusing on nine sectors, the Satmetrix study reveals thatsome are getting through in a better way than others. The biggest winners are clearly computerbrands and common electronics goods as televisions and mobiles phones which are benefitting of aquite strong fidelity rate from their customers and a positive word of mouth. On the other hand, theenergy providing sector show a Net Promoter score 62 points lower than the leader sector,correlating the low fidelity rate of customers for associated brands and companies.Customers won’t get mistreated anymoreLoyalty to brands is less and less written into stone, moreover if customers are mistreated.Robert Salvoni, Satmetrix Internaitonal Managing Director, can’t figure out how so many companieshave not yet understood this customer requirement: “I’m puzzled that brands are still not listening towhat customers are saying. Large brands tend to raise their prices and to increase the number ofpaid services, this will help customer volatility growth. Our study shows also that companies don’thelp teams to understand their behavior‘s implication on customers. Given the current economicsituation and the stress applied on every level of sales and profit margins, it is unacceptable to losecustomers for reasons that are totally under company’s control.”
  2. 2. Benefits from positive recommendation also under evaluatedIt seems that companies aren’t able to understand fully the benefits of an esteemed customerservice. During the study’s time period, promoting customers (having recommended their band)were nearly five times more (46%) than scorning customers (9%). When a brand or a provider createsa promoting customer, it generates a higher fidelity rate and a positive word of mouth, avoiding bythe same the negative effect of the lost clients. Robert Salvoni concludes that “study shows thedoubled positive effect generated by having satisfied customers for a brand. The company will keepthese customers for longer but it will also create a higher recommendation rate. All indicators provethat overcoming expectations of customer experience is extremely lucrative”. I other words: listen toour customers, trust them. If you love your clients, they will repay you.
