Understanding Customer Health Score: 6 Metrics To Track
Customer success health scoring is one of the most valuable activities SaaS organizations can undertake to evaluate and improve customer engagement, satisfaction, and loyalty. Understanding a customer’s health will let you examine any account at any given time and understand where the relationship is.
What is a Customer Health Score?
A customer’s health score indicates their current engagement, satisfaction, and loyalty level. Think of it as a way to zero in on your customer so you can connect with them in meaningful ways.
Many factors come into play when determining a customer’s health score, including their usage levels, response times to inquiries or requests, NPS/survey responses, and more. A higher health score indicates greater engagement and satisfaction, while a lower score may indicate areas where improvement is needed for the relationship to remain successful.
Metrics That Indicate Customer Health
It is essential to track multiple metrics to provide the needed information about how customers interact with your company. These include:
- Product Usage
- Customer Sentiment
- Customer Advocacy
- Customer Engagement
- Customer Relationship
- Customer ROI
The graphic below shows an example of the six metrics in action. Also included here is the ClientSuccess SuccessScore—our customer success health scoring framework that allows you to bring in customer data from multiple customer systems to build a weighted health score. Our SuccessScore framework will enable you to clearly see the individual metric groups, overall scores, and trends calculated daily by a customer account.
Without the proper tool, these metrics are often spread across multiple systems such as CRM, Support Tool, NPS/Survey Tool, Product Usage Tool, Email, and Notes.
