Appliance Satisfaction Study

The increasingly competitive home appliance industry has provided consumers with more options than ever before when shopping for a new appliance. The wide variety of models and features available, as well as a wide range of prices, makes it critical for appliance manufacturers to differentiate their brands and products in the marketplace. Retailers and manufacturers that understand their customers’ experiences, needs, and expectations are better positioned to target initiatives that may increase overall customer satisfaction, increase brand loyalty and advocacy, and grow market share.

The Solution
