FAQs about Quick CES Survey Template

  1. What are the CES questions? 

The core Customer Effort Score (CES) question inquires as to how simple it is for your customers to interact with your business. They can rate their effort level ["How easy was it for you to solve your issue today?"] on a seven-point scale by agreeing or disagreeing with a statement ["Our company made it easy for me to handle my issue"].

     2. What is a good customer effort score?

Generally, you should aim for an average CES of five or six (on a seven-point scale). If you have the perfect seven, it could mean your customers didn’t care enough to rate you honestly. If you scored lower than five—you have some adjustments to make.

     3. Where can I use this Quick CES survey template? 

At your touchpoint, you can use a QR code. Another method is to send an email or SMS survey to the customer as soon as the service is completed. If you do not have access to the internet, you can conduct offline surveys using kiosks, mobile devices, or tablets.
