In September 2019, PatientBond surveyed its current customers to determine its Net Promoter Score (NPS), which is a cross-industry measure of customers’ willingness to recommend a company’s products or services to others. It is used as a proxy for gauging the customers’ overall satisfaction and loyalty with a company’s product or service and predicts the company’s business growth.
Sixty-one respondents across 41 companies answered the question, “How likely is it you would recommend PatientBond to a friend or colleague?”
PatientBond received a remarkable NPS of 82, up from an already-impressive 73 in November 2018.
Net Promoter Score (NPS)
The Net Promoter Score is calculated using the answer, on a 0-10 scale, to the question: How likely is it that you would recommend [brand] to a friend or colleague? Respondents are grouped as follows:
- 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
Subtracting the percentage of Detractors from the percentage of Promoters yields the Net Promoter Score, which can range from a low of -100 (if every customer is a Detractor) to a high of 100 (if every customer is a Promoter).
A “positive” score or NPS above 0 is considered “good,” +50 is “Excellent” and above 70 is considered “world class.”
PatientBond’s NPS of 82, with 87% Promoters, places it in the list of top customer-centric companies. It also helps explain why PatientBond was recently ranked in the top 5% of the Inc. 5000.
Industry NPS Scores
As further testament and context for PatientBond’s excellent score, the IT Services industry only scored 33, while the healthcare industry had an NPS of 62. Telecommunications fares the worst at 24.
