You can use Zendesk to automatically solicit feedback from customers and prospects, via surveys and support tickets, natively within the support application. But that’s just the beginning. All data from customer interactions—including CSAT surveys—gets captured and leveraged to improve service quality.

With CSAT surveys, you can help your team highlight top performers and identify training opportunities to maintain a happy and effective workforce. You can also see trends in customer complaints and areas of opportunity and what channels are most popular for what types of communication.

Thanks to the array of free native integrations on Zendesk Marketplace, you can keep using your favorite survey tools and access your data in one place. Combining the industry-leading automation and analytics tools of your service desk software with your feedback tools allows you to create a complete customer feedback system.

Complementary tools, like knowledge management software, let you create articles based on frequently asked questions, so your company can help customers even when your reps aren’t online.

Features to look for in customer feedback tools

Navigating the various options of customer feedback software can feel overwhelming, but understanding some essential features can simplify the selection process. Look at these six essential features to help narrow down your options

Analytics and reporting

Reporting and analytics are pivotal components of customer feedback software, empowering businesses to transform raw feedback into actionable insights. Through detailed reports and visual dashboards, businesses can identify trends, patterns, and areas of concern from feedback, enabling them to pinpoint specific areas for improvement.

Analytics tools, such as sentiment analysis, delve deeper into feedback to uncover underlying emotions and themes, providing a more nuanced understanding of customer perceptions. By leveraging these insights, businesses can make informed decisions, prioritize product enhancements, and tailor their strategies to better align with customer needs and expectations.

Customer feedback surveys

Survey capabilities in customer feedback software is a necessary feature for businesses aiming to proactively gauge customer sentiments and gather structured insights. Surveys offer a direct channel for customers to voice their opinions, preferences, and concerns in a systematic manner.

By crafting tailored questions, businesses can extract specific information, measure satisfaction levels, and identify potential areas of improvement. The structured nature of surveys ensures that feedback is consistent and comparable, facilitating trend analysis over time. Plus, the ability to customize feedback forms, from simple star ratings to detailed questionnaires, allows businesses to adapt to different feedback needs.

Customer segmentation

Customer segmentation features in feedback software enable businesses to categorize their customers into distinct groups based on things like:

  • Demographics.

  • Purchase behavior.

  • Product usage.

By segmenting feedback, businesses can gain a granular understanding of the specific needs, preferences, and pain points of each group. This targeted approach allows for more personalized and relevant responses to feedback, ensuring you provide tailored service based on the unique characteristics of each group.

Segmentation also helps identify high-value customer groups and those at risk of churn so you can improve retention strategies. Businesses can then allocate resources more effectively and design strategies that cater to the specific needs of these segments.

Apps and integrations

Apps and integrations significantly enhance the performance of customer feedback software by streamlining and centralizing the feedback collection and analysis process. Feedback software can automatically pull in customer comments, reviews, and concerns from multiple touchpoints by integrating with various platforms such as CRM systems, e-commerce sites, help desk solutions, and social media channels.

This holistic approach ensures that no valuable feedback is missed and provides a comprehensive view of the customer experience. Apps can introduce specialized functionalities, like advanced analytics or sentiment analysis, which allow businesses to delve deeper into feedback data. As a result, businesses can respond more promptly and effectively to customer needs, fostering improved customer loyalty and satisfaction.

Omnichannel support

Omnichannel capabilities in customer feedback software are crucial in today's interconnected digital landscape, where customers interact with businesses across multiple touchpoints. By supporting omnichannel feedback collection, the software ensures that businesses capture customer sentiments from various sources, be it their websites, social media, or elsewhere.

This comprehensive approach provides a holistic view of the customer journey across channels. Businesses can engage with a broader customer base by being present on multiple platforms, ensuring diverse and representative feedback. Omnichannel support ensures no feedback is left unheard, allowing businesses to craft strategies that resonate with customers' multifaceted experiences and expectations.

Customization

Customization capabilities in customer feedback software are instrumental in allowing businesses to tailor the feedback process to their unique needs and brand identity. By enabling modifications in survey design and report data, customization helps ensure the collected feedback is relevant and actionable.

Customization allows businesses to prioritize specific metrics, integrate with niche platforms, and set up unique workflows, ensuring the software aligns seamlessly with their operation. Customization transforms generic feedback tools into specialized solutions, optimizing performance and ensuring businesses get the maximum value from their feedback.

Benefits of customer feedback platforms

Customer feedback software is an important investment for any business. Here are some benefits to investing in and partnering with the right software.

Systematize feedback collection and curation

To make decisions that most benefit your company and customers, you need as much high-quality feedback as possible. But, manually collecting and curating that feedback is difficult, costly, and prone to error.

Customer feedback platforms help you avoid the cost and headache of manual feedback collection. Instead, you can use your software to trigger surveys or similar feedback mechanisms based on events.

For instance, with Zendesk you can prompt customers with automated CSAT surveys once a live chat conversation ends. Similarly, use knowledge base software to add survey pop-ups, comment sections, and other feedback elements to knowledge base articles that solicit comments on specific articles. However you choose to systematize feedback collection, your software can help make it easier.

Resolve customer complaints and prevent churn

Customer feedback software plays a pivotal role in addressing customer grievances and mitigating churn by providing businesses with the tools to capture, analyze, and act upon complaints. Businesses can swiftly identify recurring issues and prioritize their resolution by centralizing feedback.

Automated alerts and real-time notifications ensure that urgent complaints are promptly escalated, facilitating timely interventions. Businesses can salvage potentially strained relationships and foster trust by demonstrating a proactive approach to resolving complaints and valuing customer feedback. This proactive management of grievances significantly reduces customer attrition and strengthens brand allegiance.

Make customer-centric decisions that improve CX

Customer feedback software is a cornerstone for businesses aiming to refine their customer experience (CX), product offerings, and overarching business strategy. By collecting direct insights from end-users, the software can provide an unfiltered lens into customers' perceptions, preferences, and pain points. Zendesk equips your business with robust reports that help you identify gaps in your service, leading to targeted enhancements that elevate the overall customer journey.

Feedback also sheds light on features that resonate with users, as well as areas that need improvement, ensuring that product development aligns with genuine customer needs. The insights you gather can inform broader business strategies, guiding decisions on market positioning, pricing, and expansion.

Boost brand reputation

Customer feedback software can help bolster a business's brand reputation by fostering a culture of transparency, responsiveness, and continuous improvement. By actively seeking and valuing customer opinions, businesses convey that they prioritize customer needs and are committed to delivering great experiences.

Addressing feedback promptly and effectively showcases a brand's dedication to customer satisfaction, building trust and credibility in the market. Businesses can highlight positive testimonials and reviews, often captured through feedback systems, to reinforce brand image and attract potential customers. Alternatively, addressing negative feedback demonstrates the brand's accountability, turning potential pitfalls into opportunities for publicized growth.

How to choose the right customer feedback system

The term “customer feedback tool” can refer to many different types of tools. Businesses can expand upon these tools’ functionality for online reviews, social monitoring, and feedback analytics. It’s important to be aware of the layered nature of customer feedback tools because it can ultimately affect your buying decisions. Consider the following questions to ensure you choose the right customer feedback system.

What is your use case?

Different businesses have different feedback requirements. For instance, a business-to-business (B2B) enterprise might prioritize integration capabilities with CRM systems, while a business-to-consumer (B2C) company may emphasize omnichannel feedback collection. By defining your primary use case—product development, CX enhancement, or market research—businesses can pinpoint software features that are most relevant to their needs, such as:

  • Advanced analytics.

  • Customization options.

  • Survey formats.

Defining your use case ensures optimal utilization of the software, avoiding unnecessary features that inflate costs without adding value. Additionally, aligning feedback software with your intended use case can help businesses maximize their return on investment (ROI) and streamline feedback processes.

How easy is it to use?

Ease of use is an important consideration when selecting customer feedback software since it directly impacts the tool’s efficiency, adoption rate, and overall effectiveness. A user-friendly interface ensures that employees across various departments can seamlessly navigate, collect, and analyze feedback without facing steep learning curves or requiring extensive training.

An intuitive software encourages greater participation from team members, fostering a collaborative culture that values customer insights. On the customer side of things, a straightforward feedback system increases response rates, ensuring a richer data pool.

What is the total cost of ownership?

When evaluating customer feedback software, businesses must consider the total cost of ownership (TCO) rather than just the upfront purchase or subscription price. TCO encompasses the initial acquisition cost and any ongoing expenses such as maintenance, upgrades, training, and potential integrations.

Hidden costs like downtime due to system outages, inefficiencies from a poorly suited software, or expenses related to scaling as the business grows can significantly impact the overall cost. For example, Zendesk has a low TCO, helping your money do more in the long run.
