Guest Experience

Guest Experience

In today’s experience economy, guest’s experiences are everything. A brand can quickly fall below its competition based on guest experience alone.  At PerformanceScope, we help operators improve guest experience by capturing real time direct guest feedback.

Using custom surveys and intelligent software systems, PerformanceScope maps each client’s customer journey, identifying key touchpoints along the way. By measuring customer satisfaction with each touchpoint, we’re able to uncover areas of strength and opportunity, as well as the reasons why some aspects of your business are doing well while others are falling short. Our approach to guest experience is quite simple, yet has proven incredibly effective for many leading companies in the hospitality industry.

Guest Feedback Survey Touchpoints

Guest Feedback is PerformanceScope’s benchmark survey program. It’s a plug-and-play guest feedback program that operators leverage to begin capturing critical guest feedback in days, not months. With Guest Feedback, you can capture information on how your organization performs at each touchpoint along the customer journey.

When a guest interacts with your brand, there are several opportunities within that interaction to deliver a great experience. For example, here are a few casual dining restaurant touchpoints:

  • Prompt and attentive service
  • Pace of meal
  • Knowledge of server
  • Payment processing
  • Taste and flavor of food
  • Food temperature
  • Accuracy of order
  • Visual appeal
  • Overall atmosphere
  • Cleanliness
  • Overall satisfaction (guest experience)
  • NPS (Net Promoter Score)

PerformanceScope can help your operation understand which touchpoints are being met consistently and which areas need immediate improvement. PerformanceScope created specific Guest Feedback survey questions for each touchpoint, also known as moments of truth. Guests complete the survey, revealing areas of strength and opportunity within the customer journey.

Benchmarking each month, the touchpoints display trends in critical areas. At PerformanceScope, we have years of experience in the hospitality industry, which means our clients can compare scores across their own locations and industry normative benchmarks. The result is actionable insight into performance on guest experience and the ability to maintain and improve in the areas that impact guest loyalty most. Our surveys are proven to help businesses:

  • Increase guest loyalty
  • Increase visit frequency
  • Increase positive word of mouth
  • Decrease negative word of mouth
  • Improve online review scores by knowing specifically where to take action

It’s not complicated. The truth is, there are a lot of operators that can stand to improve their consistent execution on guest experience, but they don't know specifically what areas to improve. They don't know because they are not measuring guest experience in the right way. That's the nice thing about structuring direct guest feedback to follow the customer journey. They know almost immediately how they are performing in the areas that have the greatest impact on guest happiness.

Mark Netsch, Founder & CEO, PerformanceScope

Digital Comment Cards

Guests have a vested interest in helping their local restaurants be excellent. Afterall, who doesn’t want their favorite restaurant down the block from their home or office to continue to be amazing? However, even when guests know what needs to be fixed, many feel powerless to help because giving feedback can be easier said than done.

The challenge is that it's hard for guests to provide honest feedback on the spot. Some guests worry that the server won’t take constructive feedback well. And when someone does bring up an issue, the interaction is usually awkward, leaving both guests and staff dissatisfied. In fact, research shows that of guests who experience a problem during their visit, less than half tell the server or the manager.

Guests who are less than happy have learned it’s just easier to suck it up and say nothing in the moment. Instead, they’ll often use the easiest method available to vent their frustration, whether that’s telling friends and co-workers, social media followers, or online review sites. In the end, both the operator and the guest lose; the guest is unhappy, and the operator doesn’t know they are disappointing guests or where they can improve.

Back in the day, many restaurants tried to solve this problem by capturing guest feedback via paper comment cards on every table. They didn’t work very well. Negative comments were often discarded by servers, and if a comment card did get to a manager, most managers weren’t entering the comments into a spreadsheet so they could track and trend guest experience. The intentions were good, but the method was flawed.

PerformanceScope’s digital comment cards give every guest a chance to provide feedback about their experience. A modern update to the paper comment card, digital comment cards allow guests to simply use their smartphones to provide honest feedback. This simple and intuitive approach allows businesses to capture the feedback they need to identify strengths and weaknesses.

  • Outcomes:
  • Track and trend guest experience
  • Customer recovery
  • Capture customer emails
  • Coaching and training employees
  • Reduce customer churn
  • Real-time guest feedback

When guests have something to say, the first place they look is your website. PerformanceScope’s digital comment card sits on your website, ready to capture critical guest feedback 24/7. Let us help you turn guest feedback into trackable and trendable data using our guest experience intelligence systems. Contact us today to get started!
