The results are in! Xref recently conducted our 2023 Customer Satisfaction Survey with the support of Xref Engage. We are thrilled with the results and excited to share what our customers feel about our products and service.

Thank you to our customers who participated for your feedback and support. Let’s dive into the findings. 

About our Customer Satisfaction Survey

Xref’s 2023 Customer Satisfaction Survey allowed us to measure customer satisfaction by formally hearing and recording feedback from our valued customers about where we succeed and areas for improvement. 

Who participated

Our survey was sent to 9,302 users worldwide, who have been most active in our platform since late 2022. 

The largest number of responses came from Australia (61%), New Zealand (12%), Canada and Europe (7% each) and USA (6%). Responses from regions such as Asia and the Middle East comprised the remaining 1%. 

What we asked

Our Customer Satisfaction Survey questions sought feedback from our customer base on products, processes and people, asking about areas including, but not limited to, quality, ease, security and communication. 

Survey categories

Each question in the survey fell into a particular category. Our Customer Satisfaction Survey had ten categories, and our customers provided honest feedback on how we performed in each area, such as:

  • Quality - exploring how satisfied our customers are with the Xref platform’s functionality, reliability and speed.
  • Ease - how easy it is for Xref customers to learn how to use our platform.
  • Capability - how impactful our platform is for customers.
  • Security - uncovering customer perceptions around how well Xref protects data privacy and is compliant with regulations.
  • Communication - exploring how adequately the communications from Xref, such as platform notifications and marketing materials, keep customers informed. 

Types of questions

Xref’s Customer Satisfaction Survey consisted primarily of rating scale questions (rate 1-5) seeking feedback on each category. Our survey had 27 questions.

In addition, the survey featured 3 open-ended questions, allowing our customers to share their comments and opinions. 

Why and how we chose these questions

With the expert advice of the Xref Engage team, Xref asked our existing customers about these categories because we were fuelled by the desire to have tangible feedback from our users about our product, processes and people. 

We often seek customer insights via our team members during one-on-one conversations with our loyal customers. However, these one on one conversations between our people and customers are typically less formal. By running our survey, Xref wanted to hear the voice of our users - what they really like about our platform and service, as well as the areas where we can improve - and have a way to quantify that feedback given. 

The Xref Engage team were able to help us with this. The experts at Xref Engage have more than 20 years of experience in tailoring surveys for organisations to uncover actionable insights. The Xref engage team gave guidance on what questions would offer us deeper insights and actionable feedback.

The easy-to-read graphs in the Xref Engage Data Studio helped us visualise where we excel and where we can improve. 

Key findings
