In our prior post, we highlighted five of the most important customer experience metrics for SaaS businesses and why they’re worth measuring. But that’s only half the story.

Keeping track of these metrics is great, but they don’t tell you the root causes of your customers’ delight or frustration. That’s where AI-powered tools like the Viable Generative Analysis Platform come into play.

In this piece, we’ll unveil how Viable dives deep to optimize these metrics and unlocks actionable insights.

How to optimize 5 customer experience metrics with AI

1. Net Promoter Score (NPS)

The Net Promoter Score (NPS) is a simple metric used to measure customer loyalty by asking how likely they are to recommend a company's product or service.

By employing Viable's advanced AI, firms can probe deeper into the stories told by their NPS numbers, especially by analyzing the unstructured feedback in NPS surveys. This technology excels in unearthing crucial themes and sentiments, illuminating what exactly satisfies or irks customers. By organizing this feedback, recognizing trends over time and across varied customer demographics becomes straightforward, paving the way for a clearer comprehension of elements influencing the NPS.

Steps to enhance NPS through real-time analysis:

  1. Real-time monitoring: Use Viable's real-time analysis feature to swiftly catch emerging issues or positive insights, facilitating a timely reaction.
  1. Root cause identification: Address the fundamental causes impacting your NPS by analyzing the feedback, which in turn fosters a proactive problem-solving approach.
  1. Strategic satisfaction improvement: Empower your team to take steps to improve customer satisfaction by leveraging the actionable intelligence garnered from the feedback analysis.
  1. Continuous evaluation: Regularly assess the outcomes of the actions taken and iterate on the strategies to ensure a consistent boost in customer satisfaction, thereby gradually elevating your NPS.

Over the long haul, the meticulous analysis and responsive action driven by Viable's Generative Analysis Platform contributes to a superior customer experience.

2. Customer Satisfaction (CSAT)

Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) is a key metric that evaluates the satisfaction level of customers with a particular interaction or the overall service or product.

Viable’s AI-driven platform delves beyond mere scores to explore the nuances in open-ended responses from CSAT surveys, unearthing underlying factors affecting satisfaction. This deeper insight showcases precise areas needing improvement or reinforcement, aiding in formulating targeted strategies to boost customer satisfaction.

  1. Identify recurring themes: Use Viable's AI to recognize recurring themes and sentiments in feedback, offering a rounded perspective of customer experiences.
  1. Categorize feedback: Automatically sort feedback into themes to easily pinpoint common issues or areas of delight.
  1. Prioritize actions: Understand the subtleties behind CSAT scores to prioritize actionable steps based on the insights provided by Viable.
  1. Targeted improvement: Implement focused strategies to address identified areas, thus enhancing customer satisfaction and overall service quality.
  1. Evaluate and iterate: Continuously assess the outcomes and refine strategies to ensure sustained improvement in customer satisfaction, leveraging CSAT as a tool for ongoing enhancement in service quality.

3. Customer Effort Score (CES)

Customer Effort Score (CES) gauges the ease with which customers can achieve their goals using your service or product.

Viable's AI transcends the typical analysis of CES by meticulously investigating the textual feedback gathered from CES surveys. It's not just about quantifying the ease of interactions but delving into the qualitative aspects that shape customer experiences. By analyzing open-ended responses, Viable's AI pinpoints specific facets of your service or product that either facilitate or hinder customers' goals. It segregates this feedback into distinct themes, thus providing a more structured and nuanced view of customer experiences.

This organized insight proves instrumental for businesses aiming to improve their customer service. They can now methodically address the identified pain points, tailoring solutions that alleviate customer effort wherever possible. By reducing the friction customers encounter, companies foster a more positive and effortless interaction between the customers and their offerings.

Moreover, the detailed analysis by Viable's AI helps in understanding the root causes affecting CES. It unveils the underlying issues that might have been overlooked or misinterpreted when solely relying on numerical data. This deeper comprehension is crucial for making informed decisions that resonate with customers' actual needs and preferences. Plus, the categorization of feedback into discernible themes enables a more targeted approach to problem-solving. Instead of a blanket solution, businesses can devise strategies that tackle specific issues, thereby making a more significant and lasting impact on reducing customer effort.

In essence, Viable's AI acts as a powerful lens that magnifies the intricacies within CES feedback, transforming raw data into actionable intelligence. This, in turn, empowers businesses to enhance their service or product accessibility, streamline processes, and ultimately cultivate a more satisfying customer experience.

4. Customer Churn Rate

Customer Churn Rate is a crucial metric that showcases the rate at which customers leave your service or stop purchasing your product over a defined period.

Viable’s AI emerges as a key player in decoding and tackling customer churn. By delving into customer feedback, reviews, and textual data, it can unveil the underlying reasons why customers may be opting out. For instance, identifying recurring complaints like slow response times can signal a need for improving support systems. This nuanced understanding is instrumental for crafting strategies aimed at enhancing customer satisfaction and reducing churn. The AI's capability extends to personalizing customer experiences by identifying negative feedback or potential issues even before they are explicitly raised by the customer, showcasing a level of empathy and understanding that boosts customer loyalty and reduces churn rates.

Furthermore, maintaining a positive brand reputation online is vital in the digital landscape, and here again, Viable's AI proves invaluable. Monitoring social media channels and tracking customer reviews across platforms helps in early identification and resolution of potential issues that could tarnish the brand's image. In a more investigative capacity, Viable’s AI analyzes qualitative data from open-ended feedback, providing a deeper churn analysis that goes beyond the mere quantitative churn rate metric. 

The actionable insights derived from this analysis enable proactive steps toward improving user experiences and refining retention strategies. In essence, Viable's AI facilitates a multi-dimensional approach to understanding and reducing customer churn, aiding businesses in taking informed, proactive steps to foster customer satisfaction, retention, and, ultimately, business growth.

5. Customer Lifetime Value (LTV)

Customer Lifetime Value (LTV) is a projection of the total revenue a business can reasonably expect from a customer throughout their entire relationship.

Harnessing the power of Viable's AI technology, businesses can delve into the rich data contained in customer interactions and feedback accumulated over time, unlocking invaluable insights into customer preferences and areas needing improvement. By doing so, they can craft tailored strategies to boost customer satisfaction and loyalty, both pivotal factors in elevating Customer Lifetime Value (LTV). Viable's AI goes beyond surface-level analysis, enabling a nuanced understanding of customer sentiments and the factors driving their loyalty, helping to formulate data-driven strategies that resonate with the customer base.

Moreover, Viable's AI can help predict potential issues before they escalate by analyzing historical and real-time customer data. This proactive approach allows businesses to address concerns early, fostering a positive customer experience that can lead to longer relationships and increased LTV. By continuously analyzing customer feedback through Viable, businesses can stay attuned to changing customer needs and sentiments, allowing for agile responses that keep customer satisfaction high and extend the duration of the customer relationship.
