Net Promoter Scores and Systems

Transform Your NPS® From Score to System

What is Net Promoter Score℠?

NPS began as Net Promoter Score and eventually transitioned to Net Promoter System℠. Net Promoter Score places customers into three groups: promoters, passives, and detractors. These groups are formed based on how the customer answers the question, “How likely is it that you would recommend Company XYZ to a friend or colleague?”

Net Promoter Score Scale groups

  • Promoters (score 9-10) are loyal enthusiasts who will keep buying and refer others, fueling growth.
  • Passives (score 7-8) are satisfied, but unenthusiastic customers who are vulnerable to competitive offerings.
  • Detractors (score 0-6) are unhappy customers who can damage your brand and impede growth through negative word-of-mouth.

Net Promoter Score is most definitely a useful metric in tracking customer satisfaction. By itself, Net Promoter Score is the equivalent of going to the doctor’s office and receiving a diagnosis, but no prescription. Fortunately, the “prescription” lies within the Net Promoter System.

What is Net Promoter System?

The Net Promoter System is the evolution of the score; it combines Net Promoter Score with other contextual customer data to create a strategy of ongoing action and customer centricity for your company. A Net Promoter System takes your CX program to the next level and helps steer business decisions to provide better service to your customers and improve customer satisfaction.

Five keys to a successful Net Promoter System:

1. Sustained leadership commitment

The single most important factor in creating and maintaining a successful customer and employee-centric business is having a leadership team committed from the top down. This team recognizes customer experience as a competitive differentiator and invests resources, hires talent, and consistently makes decisions to reinforce commitment—across the organization, at all levels, and over time.

2. Reliable, trusted metric

Using the NPS Score is an easy way to establish a common language for your organization. This score should be based on a constantly updated flow of information and data from customer engagement and feedback.

3. Feedback, learning, and improvement

Close the loop! You hear this statement everywhere, but what does it mean? At its core, this is the ability for your organization to respond to individual customer issues (Inner Loop) while understanding larger patterns that affect your brand and sharing those insights with the right people so they can take appropriate action (Outer Loop) to improve customer satisfaction.

4. Employee environment focused on loyalty

Your plans have been created and now they need to be carried out. Commitment from your employees is crucial. The interactions they have with customers will have a huge impact on whether a system succeeds.

5. Robust operational and analytic infrastructure

Net Promoter Systems are complex and require power, flexibility, and scalability on the technology side. Supporting an enterprise’s complex needs can quickly hinder many vendors because of the technical requirements involved. Look for a vendor who can scale to meet the needs of your Net Promoter System practices.
