How can Low-Code service CRM boost your CSAT scores?

If your organization measures CSAT, you’re likely familiar with this puzzling situation. Your team works hard and goes the extra mile, and your regular customer interactions seem fine. There might even be a few positive comments here and there. Six months down the line, when the CSAT scores are out, the report card is far from flattering. It’s like a splash of cold water in the face.

You’re left wondering:

  • Are we doing something wrong?
  • What exactly are we doing wrong?
  • Where should we even start to fix this?

Why does this happen? It all boils down to a mismatch between your initial assumptions and the realities of your customer service operations.

How a traditional service CRM pulls CSAT scores down

Most companies start with reasonable assumptions when they encode the CSAT-capture process in their service CRM. Chances are you did the same. You might have started with a hazy idea of:

  • What to measure
  • How to measure it
  • What questions to ask the customer
  • Whom to ask
  • How often to ask

These assumptions guided the design of your service CRM’s CSAT tracking and reporting. However, the day-to-day reality of customer service work challenges those initial assumptions. For example:

  1. Are you equating service-level agreement (SLA) performance with customer satisfaction? SLA performance can be a proxy for transactional customer satisfaction, but nothing more. CSAT is a more overarching number that captures what the customer thinks about your service on the whole.
  2. If you’re using a voice-of-customer (VOC) approach to CSAT, are you relying on a single questionnaire sent months after service interactions? Customers will forget the specifics of their experience and base their responses on recent interactions. To truly capture the voice of your customers, did you send them weekly reports that clearly told them that you were in control of quality most of the time? Had you done it, the CSAT scores would have been based on reality, not feelings.
  3. Did you capture the right data? Consider a D2C eCommerce business where customers purchase several items in one order. Deliveries happen in multiple lots — say three on average. The CSAT measure is about ‘how easy the e-store ordering system’ is. But customers receive three CSAT prompts, one after each delivery. Due to these repetitive requests, customers get used to ignoring these prompts. The response rate drops to 5%. Service teams can recognize this flaw quickly, but IT says fixing it will take three weeks and a significant budget, which isn’t approved. What happens next? Trust in the CSAT system erodes; everyone feels it’s a losing battle.

Can the COO even blame the service leaders for letting their teams lose motivation when their CRM refuses to budge to their needs? A rigid CRM does even more damage. It forces your service team to fight an uphill battle where scores are unfairly negative due to the way data is collected, not the quality of service. And that’s where service teams give up.

Thankfully, there is a solution that attacks the core of the problem, and does that beautifully. It’s a Low-Code service CRM. Let’s see how a Low-Code service CRM gets your service teams the flexibility and adaptability they need to make great CSAT a certainty, not a surprise.

How Can a Low-Code Service CRM Solve This Problem?

Imagine a platform where you can easily build and customize your CRM without needing to be a coding expert. This is the power of Low-Code. A Low-Code platform offers key components that set it apart from traditional CRM tools.

  • A drag-and-drop interface allows users to build and customize applications visually without being coding experts.
  • Pre-built templates serve as starting points for new projects.
  • Graphical workflow builders that enable users to design and automate business processes.
  • Built-in connectors that integrate external systems and applications.
  • Components and modules created in one project can be reused across multiple applications.

But how does a Low-Code CRM tackle the issues we discussed earlier?

  1. Your team can build what they need when they need it. No more waiting on IT for every little change. They can easily adjust workflows, data capture, and reports to match the realities of their work.
  2. The IT team is freed up to focus on significant developments, which they can now do in 1/10th the time and at 1/4th the cost. With the ability to build sophisticated apps quickly and easily, leaders are more likely to approve ambitious CRM enhancements.
  3. Low-Code CRMs are designed for flexibility. You can capture any data you need, from any source, and create automated reports that deliver the right information to the right people. This ensures that everyone is focused on the metrics that truly matter for customer satisfaction.

In essence, with a Low-Code CRM, your service team can:

  • Focus on what truly drives customer satisfaction, not just arbitrary KPIs.
  • Spend more time on activities that improve the customer experience, not on wrestling with a rigid CRM.
  • Gather the insights they need to understand your customers and their needs.
  • Capture critical data points that influence CSAT and manage the expectations and opinions of those who will respond to CSAT questionnaires.

This is how a Low-Code CRM helps you create a customer-centric culture that naturally leads to higher CSAT scores. But not all Low-Code CRMs are the same.
