The American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI, www.theacsi.org) is the only national cross-industry measure of customer satisfaction in the United States. This strategic economic indicator is based on customer evaluations of the quality of goods and services purchased in the United States and produced by domestic and foreign firms with substantial U.S. market shares.
The ACSI was started in the United States in 1994 by researchers at the University of Michigan, in conjunction with the American Society for Quality in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and CFI Group in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Index was developed to provide information on satisfaction with the quality of products and services available to consumers. Before the ACSI, no national measure of quality from the perspective of the user was available in the US.
The American Customer Satisfaction Index provides unique customer experience benchmarking capabilities that come from the Index’s one-of-a-kind, cross-industry structure. For two decades, the ACSI has used its science-based, proprietary methodology to nalyse customer satisfaction for 10 economic sectors and more than 40 key industries that together represent a broad swath of the national economy.
This consistent, reliable, and precise approach means customer satisfaction results as produced by the ACSI are comparable across all sectors, industries, companies, and time periods in the Index.
The American Customer Satisfaction Index(ACSI) has presence in more than a dozen countries like US, UK, Singapore, etc. Such measures and perceived customer satisfaction based indexed ranking exist in most mature markets, and is launched for first time in India. SOME ACSI GLOBAL PARTNERS
