ForeSee Results’ Top 40 Online Retail Satisfaction Index Rates Leading E-Commerce Sites on Holiday Performance
ANN ARBOR, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Online shoppers are slightly more satisfied this holiday season than last, according to the Top 40 Online Retail Satisfaction Index produced by ForeSee Results in partnership with FGI Research. Aggregate customer satisfaction with this group of leading retailers rose one point (1.4%) to a score of 75 on a 100-point scale. The research was conducted using the methodology of the University of Michigan’s American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) and surveyed more than 10,000 online holiday shoppers.
Among the findings of the second annual holiday edition of the Top 40 Online Retail Satisfaction Index:
“What’s remarkable is that the leaders are really working hard to remain the leaders,” said Larry Freed, President and CEO of ForeSee Results and an online customer satisfaction expert. “The top eight retailers from last season either maintained or improved. They aren’t resting on their laurels or giving other retailers a chance to erode their customer base.”
