Benefits of LibSatLibrary Customer Satisfaction Management Service versus Traditional Approaches

The benefits of using LibSatLibrary Customer Satisfaction Management Service are best understood by comparing with the traditional approaches to measuring customer satisfaction. Organizations using period specific, point-in-time surveys are missing some key opportunities and may in fact risk missing out on valuable feedback from core users.

Until now, common approaches to collecting feedback include:

  1. Scheduled annual (or less frequent) point-in-time surveys
  2. Service-specific polls and surveys (e.g., web site surveys)
  3. Use of ad-hoc, anecdotal and "suggestion-box" feedback
  1. Collecting feedback using regular formal surveys is considered a best-practice approach to monitoring customer satisfaction. From a planning perspective it is easy and typical to schedule the collection of feedback during the same time period (e.g., a month) each year. This approach while seemingly practical and affordable, often results in over-representation of certain patron groups, while others are under-represented. A potential side-effect is that results are skewed, creating a situation where subsequent interpretation and planning is based on invalid assumptions.
    Annual (or less frequent) surveys provide opportunities to compare long term trends, but totally miss the opportunity to monitor the impacts of specific changes and events or determine the specific timing of changes that impact satisfaction. These potentially significant missed opportunities can be resolved using a continuous feedback system. With annual feedback solutions the cause-effect and corrective actions may have to wait up to 12 months before they can be analyzed – and even then determining the impact of each event and change over the past year may never be fully understood or handled appropriately. With LibSatLibrary Customer Satisfaction Management Service, there is continuous measurement and reporting of results, ensuring balanced and inclusive results that enable management to understand trends and impacts, as they happen.
  2. Collecting partial feedback through opinion polls and service-specific surveys is one approach to gaining feedback and insight from customers. This “limited-view” approach is often more practical and lower cost than formal customer satisfaction surveys. From your customer's perspective, they are provided with an opportunity to provide specific feedback – and this type of feedback collection heightens the sense of commitment to measuring customer satisfaction by staff and customers – even those who are not directly participate.
    However, a more ideal approach enables all patrons to provide feedback. The “ideal” approach gathers information consistently across all services. It is comprehensive and enables management to monitor results on an ongoing basis. With the introduction of Libsat, this "ideal" approach is now available. It is as cost-effective and practical as previous “limited-view” approaches, making it an easy choice for organizations wanting to transition to a better solution, typically with lower cost.
  3. It is always a good idea to offer as many opportunities as possible for clients to provide feedback. It is always a good idea to listen for and respond to front-line specific feedback. This information, while invaluable, risks being unheard by management – or worse – leads to a situation, where the vocal few heavily impact decision making. Only broad feedback and consensus can lower the risk of this kind of bias and guarantee that frontline feedback reaches all levels of management. For very little cost, organizations can now use LibSatLibrary Customer Satisfaction Management Service to manage all feedback and reduce the risks associated with making decisions in a vacuum or making decisions based on partial and/or biased information.
