What is customer effort score (CES)?
This metric shows how much effort the customer thinks they had to put in to have their problem resolved. It’s a survey question “How easy was it for you to get your problem solved?” (scale of 1 to 5)
Why should you measure customer effort scores?
Knowing your CES allows you to see what needs to be done to improve the way your support team interacts with your customers.
It is a strong predictor of future customer loyalty – those with high effort scores are less likely to become return customers.
