ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 12, 2011 /CNW/ -- ForeSee Results, the leader in technology-driven customer satisfaction measurement and management, today released new research that quantifies the impact of Canadian customer satisfaction on future behaviors.
ForeSee Results surveyed nearly 20,000 site visitors in Canada in the month of April and compared the behaviours of highly satisfied website visitors (those with satisfaction at 80 or higher on a 100-point scale) to the future behaviors of less satisfied site visitors (those with satisfaction 69 or below). Highly satisfied visitors to Canadian websites report being:
-- 70% more likely to purchase online,
-- 133% more likely to purchase offline,
-- 132% more likely to recommend, and
-- 66% more likely to return.
"This research shows us that the value of a satisfied customer in Canada is huge," said Larry Freed, President and CEO of ForeSee Results. "Canadian companies that can satisfy their customers in any channel are just at a huge competitive advantage."
ForeSee Results works with companies in Canada, the United States, Europe and around the world to measure and analyze customer satisfaction in a way that helps increase loyalty, sales, and return on investment.
