Webinar: Moving Your Voice of the Customer to the Next Level

May 10, 2018
VOCMay 10, 2018 (2-3pm ET)

Most Voice of the Customer (VOC) processes are base solely in contacts and surveys, which tend to be presented separately. The most compelling VOC processes reinforce their recommendations with four items:

  1. Operations data and employee input that reinforce the survey findings
  2. An economic model which quantifies the cost of inaction on an issue (ideally monthly cost)
  3. Emotional examples, ideally case studies or recordings
  4. Formatting that works for multiple audiences

This webinar will provide a method for collecting, integrating , analyzing and reporting the data in a manner that is compelling to the CFO and CMO. An alliance with Quality or Continuous Improvement (CI) for both analysis and implementation of pilot test is critical. CX and Service executives bring a valuable asset to CI executives in that most are not fluent in how to convert customer sat into revenue implications. Learn how to work with front line staff to both collect real time granular data as well as show them that their input is impacting the Continuous Improvement process. Gain insights on how this approach was applied within NACS to achieve significant improvement in scores and record breaking attendance at key events.


  • How to create an economic and emotional imperative to act on the Voice of the Customer. This includes revenue, margin, word of mouth and share of wallet as well as emotional dimensions which have been recently explored with Az State U's Center for Service Leadership.
  • How to collect, integrate and format the data to precipitate and guide immediate action by both executive and front line managers. Process and outcome metrics to track impact.
  • How to get the resources from Marketing and Finance to enhance the VOC process and move from a firefighting mode to a preventive mode - ideally taking control of website content.
