NPS: The Next Generation

Customer experience analytics provider, ForeSee has developed what it’s calling the next generation of NPS -- the Word of Mouth Index (WoMI) – which can accurately capture the voices of passive and active promoters as well as detractors to give organizations a complete picture of what customers are saying. Through its own research, ForeSee found that Net Promoter Scores overstate detractors by 27% -- primarily because it doesn’t distinguish between positive and negative word-of-mouth. With WoMI ForeSee says that organizations are able to take action and foster more positive word-of-mouth while decreasing negative word-of-mouth which can result in more customer satisfaction and improved overall customer experience.
