PART 4- PENETRATION
NPS is an essential metric for this industry. In fact, at the Insurance Summit 2018, IRDAI Chairman, SC Khuntia urged insurers to “focus on customer satisfaction and loyalty”.
The survey was conducted among over 500 inhabitants of Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Pune, Ahmedabad, and Hyderabad. At the time of the survey, all the respondents were between 25 to 60 years of age. Also, the survey respondents were affluent vehicle owners. Additionally, they were also avid moviegoers and extremely aware of the changing technological trends.
*NPS® or Net Promoter Score® is a metric for calculating customer satisfaction and loyalty. Moreover, it is a proven indicator of Growth. It is based off a single question, that is, “On a scale of 0-10, how likely are you to recommend (a company or a service) to you friends, family or colleagues?” Customers who give a score of 6 or less are called Detractors. Those who give 7 or 8 are Passives where as those who give 9 or 10 are Promoters. Then, the NPS is calculated by subtracting the percentage of Detractors from the Promoters.
