How Are We Doing?

It’s been about a year now since we started using a Help Desk platform for inquiries and support, and besides being an invaluable tool for managing all of our conversations, it’s given us real insight into how our clients feel about our performance. The Help Desk has allowed us to capture a lot more feedback and we thought it might be interesting to share some of the metrics and feedback we’ve collected with the public.

A year later, we’ve received 3,300 emails and conducted 1,100 conversations with 620 people. Whew! Without the Help Desk system I don’t know how we would have managed. Crunching the numbers, that’s about 12 incoming emails per working day about new projects, support requests, plugin questions and more.

What’s even more interesting is that across all of those thousands of emails, approximately 20% have left feedback about the interactions to let us know how we’re doing. That’s huge! And we’re so grateful for the extra time people have taken to give us that insight. Here’s what our numbers look like over the past year:

Uncanny Owl Satisfaction

Yes, there was one comment from a random person who wasn’t happy at all (after I pointed out that we weren’t the company he was looking for and telling him we couldn’t help). There’s always one; we can’t make everyone happy. But we do try, as evidenced by the Great ratings above!

Many of those people also took time to leave us comments about how we did (if only we had that kind of response rate for Toolkit reviews!). Here are just a few of the comments that were left for us:
