NPS vs. NLP: Will NPS score survive the age of advanced customer feedback analysis?

Over the past few decades, the Net Promoter Score (NPS) has become a popular metric for measuring customer loyalty and satisfaction. However, with the rise of Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology, the relevance of the NPS score has been called into question. In this article, we will explore the evolution of the NPS score and how NLP technology is changing the way we measure customer feedback.

The origin of net promoter score

Fred Reichheld of Bain & Company first introduced the NPS score in 2003 as a measure to gauge customer loyalty. This metric is extensively used today, providing businesses with valuable insight into their customers’ experiences on an easy-to-understand scale from 0 – 10. Customers who provide ratings between 9 – 10 are known as “promoters” and those that rate 6 or lower, “detractors”. The overall NPS score for a company is simply calculated by subtracting the percentage of detractors from promoters.

The limitations of net promoter score

The Net Promoter Score (NPS) has long been a popular metric for tracking customer loyalty, but its homogenous methodology can often leave companies in the dark about what drives their customers’ satisfaction and recommendations. By focusing solely on one action – recommending or not – NPS fails to address all of the factors that create meaningful, holistic insights into consumer behavior; such as which products are resonating best with consumers, how they interact with channels throughout their journey and why certain experiences result in feedback rather than referrals.

The role of natural language processing

Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a revolutionary artificial intelligence technology that allows computers to comprehend and process human language. With the help of this innovative approach, businesses are able to more deeply analyze consumer feedback from reviews, social posts, support tickets and chat dialogues; information essential for understanding customer opinions at an even deeper level than ever before with just an NPS score alone.

Harnessing the power of NLP technology, companies can gain valuable insights into customer feedback that facilitate improved decision-making. By leveraging advanced analytics algorithms to identify patterns and trends from customer responses at scale, organizations are better equipped to address common challenges as well as evaluate improvements they make over time.

In conclusion, while the NPS score has been a useful metric for measuring customer loyalty and satisfaction, NLP technology has revolutionized the way we measure and analyze customer feedback. By providing more detailed insights into customer sentiment and feedback, NLP technology enables companies to make more informed decisions about how to improve their products and services, ultimately leading to better customer experiences and increased loyalty.
