Our NPS Score

What does NPS mean?

The Net Promoter Score (NPS) is a way of measuring if our customers would recommend us.

We ask every person who talks to us about our service and how they would rate us. During an average day, we update our score. We really are obsessed with service and providing the very best solutions to you and that's why we are growing our portfolio!

What is the Happiness factor?

The Happiness factor is a single, simple metric for gauging satisfaction, we use this to update in real time.

It is calculated as follows:

Percentage happy (GOLD + GREEN RESPONSES) / Total responses

How can you help?

Your feedback has truly been amazing, and it is important to us, so we would like to keep them coming in, so that we can remain at 100% Satisfaction and Happiness Score.

The average score for an IT company is usually around 70-80% so we are extremely proud of this as we are far from average in everything we do!

After each and every helpdesk ticket you will have the opportunity to click on one of the Gold star or smiley faces and provide us with your feedback which is very important to us, as it allows us to see how we are performing.
