Improving the Customer Experience with DSAT Scores

Maintaining a 90% CSAT score sounds good, but what about the remaining 10% of dissatisfied customers?

Analyzing customer DSAT (dissatisfaction) can provide a treasure trove of insights for improving the customer experience. However, knowing where to begin can be challenging when you’re dealing with hundreds or thousands of unhappy customers. MaestroQA is making DSAT analysis easier with our latest feature: DSAT Analysis Dashboard.

What is DSAT Analysis (& Why is it Important)?

DSAT analysis is the process of collecting, aggregating, and reviewing data from support tickets that contain low CSAT scores. What is a “low” CSAT score? On a five-star scale, anything other than a four or five-star rating could indicate dissatisfaction. Does this mean that all three-star reviews contain negative sentiment? Probably not, although it’s fair to say most CX managers aim for four or five-star experiences.

As pointed out in our previous article about DSAT analysis, customers typically express dissatisfaction with one or more of the following:

  • Customer support issues (long wait times, poor communication, etc.)
  • Product or service issues (defective packaging, missing parts, etc.)
  • Policy issues (unreasonable return policies, pricing concerns, etc.)

Why aren’t more CX leaders focused on their DSAT scores? For starters, analyzing tickets from unhappy customers isn’t the most pleasant way to spend your time. In addition, some customers are simply unreasonable, which presents credibility issues. And, since few ticketing systems offer prebuilt DSAT analytics, preparing the data can involve time-consuming data exports and spreadsheet manipulation. 

Automatically Identify DSAT Tickets from CSAT Surveys

Our DSAT Analysis Dashboard in MaestroQA provides an automated way to identify and aggregate tickets from unhappy customers—without manually exporting data from your helpdesk. CX leaders can gain access to multiple DSAT reports and charts from a single view, including the total number of:

  • Tickets available
  • Tickets with CSAT
  • Tickets with DSAT
  • DSAT ticket trends by week
