Concerned About Your Call Center Outsourcing Partnership? You Need A Checkup!

Do you know the health of your customers? Not their physical health, but the health of the relationship between your customers and your company. In a recent article, Bob Hayes, PhD discusses the importance of measuring various metrics or analytics to determine customer health scores. Knowing customer health scores can assist companies by offering descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics. Hayes goes on to give detailed information on the following three steps to creating customer health scores: 

1) Identify available metrics

2) Select metrics to include in the customer health score

3) Combine metrics

These steps can help create customer health scoring, but Hayes raises another point that these scores won’t be effective if employees don’t understand what they mean. Hayes offers the following four things companies need to report on with customer health scores: 

1) Clearly define your customer health score

2) Use precise algorithms when calculating a customer health score

3) Determine the measurement quality of the customer health score

4) Demonstrate the usefulness of the customer health score
