Annual Contract Value

Annual Contract Value (ACV) is the dollar amount an average customer contract is worth to your company in one year. There tends to be less universal consensus on the definition of ACV compared to some other SaaS metrics, such as Annual Recurring Revenue. For example, some companies include one-time initial charges like setup or training in their ACV calculations, while others don’t.

Average Speed to Answer

Average Speed to Answer (ASA) is the average amount of time taken for a call centre agent to answer an inbound customer call, including time spent waiting in a queue. It excludes time spent navigating an IVR system. This metric one of the most important signals tied to customer satisfaction.

Customer Effort Score

Customer Effort Score (CES) is a measure of how easy or difficult it is for customers to interact with your company, for example, to make a purchase, to access a free trial, to resolve a problem, to navigate your website, or to get something done in your product. It’s measured by surveying customers after a specific interaction, and asking them to rate how easy or difficult it was to do what they wanted to do. Examples of difficult or high-effort interactions are ones that add friction for customers, for example, making them repeat information, interact with multiple people or screens, or wade through generic content to find information relevant to them.

Customer Health Score

By monitoring Customer Health Scores, you can detect early signals of increased friction or declining customer engagement. You can also identify highly engaged and loyal clients, who would make excellent advocates.
