Listen and respond to customers

Listening and responding to customers is a focus of all our activities. Voice of Customer and Partner Listening Systems and Programs enable us to connect with our customers through research, social media, product support services, in-product feedback mechanisms, and internal and external programs. These tools work to help us understand your needs and create a better experience for you.

Listening Systems

Microsoft is deeply influenced by the feedback we receive from our Customer and Partner Experience Measurement Program, as well as our product satisfaction surveys, usability studies, online feedback forms, research forums, and more. Many customers also choose to give us feedback through the Customer Experience Improvement Program, a product-based technology that lets you provide real-time feedback about your experiences with Microsoft products. It helps us and our partners resolve bugs, prioritize content for service packs, and identify new features for future product releases.
