Scoop Independent News Editor Alastair Thompson interviews Michele Levine CEO, Roy Morgan Research about the winners of the 2011 Customer Satisfaction Awards
Michele Levine, CEO, Roy Morgan Research, says:
“Customer Satisfaction is absolutely vital to every New Zealand business, particularly in the new age of social media, where any negative customer interaction can literally be broadcast to thousands people virtually instantly.
“Roy Morgan Research has over 70 years’ experience in collecting objective, independent information on consumers’ beliefs, attitudes & preferences and collecting data on New Zealanders for the last 10 years, including Customer Satisfaction.
“Our clients have recently helped us realise that our Customer Satisfaction data is far more robust and meaningful than most of the Awards that we see constantly promoted in the media. Unlike all the others, ours are the result of a single question – the same question across numerous categories - which asks consumers to rate products and services they have used on a five-point scale.
“This will obviously produce different results to the considered opinions of a few people in a product testing laboratory or the readers of a particular magazine or the opinions of users who are asked to rate products in just one isolated category.
“The Roy Morgan Customer Satisfaction Awards are presented to those businesses in New Zealand who are leading their category in Customer Satisfaction and have earned formal recognition of their achievement.”
