3 updates to gather and manage feedback with Dynamics 365 Customer Voice

It has never been more important to listen to your customers, especially as customer journeys adapt to tectonic shifts in buying behavior. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Voice was made generally available on September 1, 2020 to help simplify feedback collection, measure sentiment across channels, and empowering organizations to react more quickly to customer needs.

With 2020 release wave 2 updates for Dynamics 365 Customer Voice, we’ve enhanced omnichannel collection capabilities, making it easier to build strong relationships with your customers.

Enhance the way you manage feedback

1. Expanded satisfaction metrics for surfacing the data that matters most

To understand your customers completely, you need the right data and tools to analyze the most important metrics. Dynamics 365 Customer Voice delivers both. With Dynamics 365 Customer Voice, you can track your service or product perception throughout the customer journey with satisfaction metrics, such as Net Promoter Score (NPS). Take timely action when responding to customer issues by setting up ranges and triggers to receive automatic alerts when a customer’s NPS reaches a certain level. The alert dashboard displays which customers need attention and their reason for dissatisfaction, enabling businesses to track follow up status across the organization and maintain strong customer relationships.

2. Built-in integration across your customer data platform for a 360-degree customer view

Centralizing customer feedback is critical to truly understanding how your customers feel about your business. With Dynamics 365 Customer Voice, real-time feedback is integrated with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Insights to create a holistic customer profile across your business. Now, you can directly access Dynamics 365 Customer Insights profiles from Dynamics 365 Customer Voice when following up on customer issues to create more powerful and personalized interactions.

With the always-on capability in Dynamics 365 Customer Voice, feedback is continuously updated in Dynamics 365 Customer Insights to generate insights such as “high value customers that provided a response of three or below”, unifying profiles and responses in the 360-degree view of the customer. Aggregated data brings agility to your organization by using responses to predict the next best action, potential customer churn, and new revenue opportunities.

3. Omnichannel feedback collection to improve response rates and generate more relevant data

Listening to customers means meeting them where it matters: in direct surveys and across channels, and throughout their interactions with your employees, operations, and products. With omnichannel feedback collection, Dynamics 365 Customer Voice can consolidate and visualize data from a variety of sources, creating a powerful, comprehensive tool to uncover true customer sentiment.

For example, you can now collect feedback from customers in post-chat surveys with customer satisfaction information automatically collected in the post-chat window of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Service and updated instantly in the dashboard. Accurately gauge the pulse of your customer’s satisfaction with a variety of feedback collection channels, such as embedded surveys in websites, personalized links, and QR codes. With omnichannel feedback collection, you can build context around customer responses with AI detection, sentiment analysis, and comment categorization to foster authentic connections with your customers.
