About the MarketTools CustomerSat ACE Awards
Established in 2005, the MarketTools CustomerSat ACE Awards program recognizes outstanding achievement in customer satisfaction. To be eligible for a MarketTools CustomerSat ACE Award, clients must complete an application form and have conducted one or more customer satisfaction surveys during the calendar year for which the award is given. Qualifying performance is determined by a combination of customer satisfaction mean scores and top-box rating percentages maintained during at least a 6-month period during the calendar year. The customer feedback on which awards are based must be representative of the entire business, business unit or business segment to which the award applies. MarketTools ensures that the survey processes on which metrics are based are rigorous, defensible and repeatable. Surveys may use either a census of customers or representative sampling with specified minimum confidence levels and maximum margins of error.
