Restaurant Customer Satisfaction Surveys


Whether their market is regional or international, restaurant chains need an accurate measurement of food quality, property cleanliness, and service consistency from the guestís point of view. Intelemedia teams with market researchers to take specific questions restaurant managers need answered, and adapt them to the interactive voice response (IVR) survey technique. By using the power and capacity of Intelemediaís IVR platform, restaurant decision makers receive timely information on customer satisfaction. At the restaurants, guests are randomly selected to receive a cash register receipt with an invitation to call a toll-free number. When the call is made, the guest is directed to use their telephone keypad to input a "code" number thatís printed on their receipt. Then they are asked a brief series of questions, and they answer by pressing the numbers corresponding to their answers. Callers are also given an option to leave a short voice message. Upon completing the survey, guests are provided with a special code to write on their receipt. That turns the receipt into a coupon which they can redeem for a discount or complimentary menu item on their next visit to the restaurant.

The questions are structured so that an answer pattern indicating a bad experience triggers a "hot notice" that is e-mailed or faxed to the appropriate manager. They can then take prompt action to correct a problem, and prevent additional customer dissatisfaction. When a customer has a complaint and asks to be called, a timely return call is made, or at the customerís option, they are connected directly to the chainís customer service department. The integrated service is a powerful tool for "damage control" and restaurant guests are often pleasantly surprised by managementís responsiveness.

For restaurants with locations all over North America, the IVR satisfaction survey is multilingual. Hispanic guests are able to take the survey in Spanish, while Canadian calls can be answered in English or French-Canadian based on callís origin.

Survey results are available in real time via a secure site on the Internet. Raw data is uploaded at regular intervals to market researchers for analysis and reporting.
