2021 Customer Satisfaction Survey Results

Results are in…drum roll please!

GLE’s 2021 customer survey results are in! Our valued customers have spoken loud and clear and we are listening. We received 40 customer satisfaction survey responses in total. Each of which addressed our annual performance in 8 various categories. We wanted honest and accurate ratings so we created 5 rating options. These options were “very good”, “good”, “moderate”, “poor”, and “very poor”. We felt these options would increase GLE’s overall visibility. By increasing visibility, our team can assess what is going well, and explore opportunities to improve where we are potentially lacking.

…and the highest rated category goes to

Our highest ratings received in the customer satisfaction survey, were in our “Quality” category. Accordingly, 93% of our customer responses rated the quality of our parts as our highest ratings. We considered these to be “very good”, and “good”. As a result, the team was thrilled to see such high ratings in this category. Since we pride ourselves on the quality of our precision parts, the results verified that we are providing our customers with exceptional product.

…and the lowest rated category goes to

Additionally, (as we had anticipated) our lowest rated category in our customer survey was in “Delivery Performance”. We received 2 ratings of “very poor”, and 1 rating of “poor”. These made up 7.5% of our total results in the delivery performance category. Consequently, we can attribute many of our delivery challenges over the past year to disruptions in the supply chain. Whether it be raw material shortages, issues purchasing grinding tools, shipping delays, and vendor response time. Despite our best efforts, we saw a ripple effect from COVID-19 shutdowns across the board. These ratings were (unfortunately) not a shock for us, but we are constantly striving to improve.
